Eastern Biotech & Life Sciences, UAE announces the launch of In-Vitro diagnostic kits for Avian Flu, Malaria, Dengue fever and many other rapid ‘self-test’ kits in India & Africa.

Currently the company is operating with clients in six major countries, with information of the rapid test kits being requested from another twelve including India, India being one of the biggest markets for these kits worldwide. With the start of the mosquito season in many tropical countries it has come to light that Dengue Fever is becoming more and more prevalent throughout the Middle East, Malaysia, and Southeast Asia.

Dengue Fever comes in four forms, the mildest being capable of incapacitating an individual for up to 6 months, the worst type results in massive hemorrhaging of the affected individual and almost certain death. The only treatment upon infection is fluid replacement therapy which must be started immediately. Standard laboratories take a minimum of 3 days to as long as 21 days to complete testing, with many laboratories not even being capable of handling and testing appropriate samples.

"Right now, most diagnosis of dengue fever is done as an academic exercise, approached after the sudden outbreak in India two years back. Our tests will enable rapid diagnosis of dengue fever to help people identify the disease sitting at home and at their own convenience." said Faruq M Badiuddin, Chairman and Managing Director, Eastern Biotech & Life Sciences.

Eastern Biotech offers a quick solution for this problem and many other kinds of infectious diseases in the form of rapid test kits. The kits are easy to use, highly accurate, easily disposable and very cost effective, the range of tests available are able to swiftly aid the diagnosis of HIV 1&2, Hepatitis B&C, Dengue Fever, Syphilis, Malaria and Cancers.

“In the last couple of months we have received several orders from the UK for our pregnancy test kits and are currently receiving orders from South Africa & India for various other tests on a near monthly basis” states Junaid Faruq, marketing director of Eastern Biotech

Eastern Biotech and Life Sciences is established in Dubiotech, Dubai
