/PRNewswire/ -- Happiness Biotech Group Limited (the "Company" or Nasdaq: HAPP), an innovative China
-based nutraceutical and dietary supplements producer, announced today that the Company, together with Fuzhou
University, have achieved a breakthrough in developing Covid-19 Testing Kits.
Currently, the main Covid-19 detection method is nucleic acid detection. The average detection takes 5-6 hours, while the misdetection rate is high and the cost is high. In the past two months, the Company has been dedicated to developing a more efficient and affordable testing kit for Covid-19 through its biochemical laboratory that the Company jointly established with School of Bioscience and Engineering, Fuzhou
The Company made a breakthrough and successfully developed the colloidal gold testing kit by adopting the antibody detection method. The colloidal gold testing kits innovatively use multiple target tests combined with IgM / IgG tests, which greatly improve the detection sensitivity. The detection rate of IgM antibody in clinical patients is more than 70%, and that of IgG antibody in convalescent patients is more than 90%. The testing kits not only greatly improve the success rate of detection, but also greatly shorten the detection time to 10-15 minutes, while the cost is relatively low compared to the nucleic acid detection.
"We are ready to submit the CFDA certification application next week, and we expect to receive the approval soon since the CFDA has granted emergency approval mechanism for Covid-19 Testing Kits. We also plan to apply for CE certification in Europe
and FDA certification in the United States
. We are very grateful to the experts of Fuzhou
University and the staff of our biochemical laboratory for their hard work. At present, the company has begun to transform the production workshop to prepare for mass production. We believe that through the efforts of companies like us, people all over the world will be able to use more efficient and affordable Covid-19 testing kits in the near future." Mr. Xuezhu Wang
, CEO of the Company, proudly stated.
