SPYGENE LABORATORIES Sdn Bhd marked its official launch on Nov 6 with a grand opening ceremony. The event was attended by several guests and SpyGene’s key partners. To ensure the safety of everyone attending, guests were required to undergo a Covid-19 screening test during the registration.
SpyGene Laboratories, established in June 2021 by Revongen Corporation Sdn Bhd, began its operations in October this year. Together with its partner, DoctorOnCall, SpyGene aims to deliver laboratory services to your doorsteps. It also aims to be the first halal-certified clinical diagnostic laboratory services provider.
EL Law, CEO and Founder of Revongen Corporation, who officiated the opening said: “We had the idea of setting up this lab during the first Movement Control Order (MCO) when everybody was rushing to do PCR tests.
“At that time, a couple of people approached us, and we thought of going into mobile units (to move around). However, due to the technicalities at that time, the Ministry of Health (MoH) was also very sceptical and careful with the risks and compliances, so we put it on hold.”
Law said the name ‘Spy’ in SpyGene implies the spirit of ‘spying’ to accurately determine the causes of diseases. It seeks to help doctors provide the best solutions, treatment, and diagnoses for patients. He believed that the medical devices businesses would be the next wave after gloves.
Working together to expand
SpyGene CEO Abdul Rahman Wahiduddin emphasised the importance of diagnostic testing routines. He said routine tests would help detect chronic diseases, usually discovered at an advanced stage. He stated that SpyGene would be able to provide the public with affordable prices for the tests by working together with numerous players in the ecosystem. The affordability of the services was one of the best ways to encourage more routine tests among the public.
“One of my dreams is to revolutionise the clinical diagnostic laboratory sector, where we want to be the first halal clinical diagnostic laboratory. Malaysia has always been known to the world as a halal hub. So, if we work together on this, we will be able to expand together and may set an example for other countries,” shared Abdul Rahman.
“We hope together with Mindray, Chemopharm and SpyGene, we can contribute more to society and provide the world a top solution,” said Horace Wang, General Manager ASEAN 1 of Mindray Medical Sdn Bhd.
Mohd Hafis from Chemopharm Sdn Bhd shared that the company felt very honoured to be one of the main vendors for SpyGene. Sue Chan then added that the company was dedicated to becoming the most trusted partner in the industry and bringing its stakeholders’ performance to a higher level.
Hazwan Najib, Co-Founder and the Chief Marketing Officer of DoctorOnCall, congratulated SpyGene on its opening. He revealed that the partnership with SpyGene aimed to bring the best, convenient and safest healthcare services.
Before the opening ceremony, guests were given a brief tour of SpyGene Laboratories where they were introduced to the machines and technology used by SpyGene in its operations. — The Health
