BIOHK2021 Update 香港国际生物科技展資訊更新

BIOHK is an international convention organized by Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization to introduce novel state-of-the-art biotech innovations from around the globe and provide an extensive platform to allow pioneers of the biotech industry to convene, with the purpose of promoting Hong Kong as an international innovation hub for biotech.

However, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, BIOHK2021 had to be postponed several times and now has been decided to be postponed to 10-13 March 2021. But we are always well-prepared and ready to be the first international biotech convention after pandemic. In view of the continuing uncertainties amidst the COVID-19 epidemic, the safety of participants is definitely our prioritized concern. For any subsequent changes, we will promptly notify all stakeholders and exhibitors for getting better prepared and arranged.

It’s true that COVID-19 brings us plenty of negative impacts, on another hand, it arouses awareness in biotech and speeds up the biotech development. BIOHK2021 must be the first International Biotech Convention when COVID-19 is over. So please reserve your time to join this significant biotech event in Hong Kong.

BIOHK2021 team hereby expresses our gratitude for all those supporting to BIOHK2021. We will continue to try our best in organizing BIOHK2021, which brings biotech industry an international biotech event, with the purpose of promoting the biotech development.

香港国际生物科技展是由香港生物科技协会所举办的国际会议,引入全球最创新的生物技术,及提供一个让生物科技行业聚集一堂的平台,旨在促进香港成为国际生物科技创新中心。

可是,受到新型冠状病毒疫情影响,香港国际生物科技展已推迟数次,而香港国际生物科技展现已决定延至2021年3月10日至13日举办。但是我们时刻做好充分准备成为疫情之后的首个国际生物科技大会。由于疫情存在变量,参加者安全必然是我们首要的考虑。如果科技展有任何变动,我们亦会适时通知各持份者及参展商,确保各方有充足时间作准备及安排。

确实,COVID-19给我们带来了很多负面影响,但另一方面,它引起了人们对生物科技的关注及加快生物科技的发展。当新冠肺炎结束时,香港国际生物科技展必会是第一个举办的国际生物科技大会,所以请预留时间参加这个于香港举办的生物科技盛会。

香港国际生物科技展筹委会在此感谢各方的支持,我们会尽最大努力办好香港国际生物科技展,为生物科技界带来一个国际性的生物科技活动,以促进生物科技发展。

HKLife battles to develop diagnostic tests for COVID-19
海康为COVID-19开发诊断测试而战


Both teams of HKLife, in Hong Kong and in Beijing, are working around the clock to develop sensitive and specific diagnostic tests for the new coronavirus COVID-19. Due to the epidemic crisis, the government rapidly put in place compulsory control measures for municipal transportation and postponed resumption to work. This meant that for outsourced experimental reagents, such as enzymes, primers, and reagents, either the items were out of stock or staff members still had not resumed work. Moreover, we could not gain access to viral samples to act as positive controls. All these external factors hindered our progress but our team undertook positive counter measures: where delivery was delayed, we went to pick up in person; where one supplier was out of stock, we contacted ten other suppliers; where necessary, we prepared the reagents ourselves; and we used synthesized plasmids for positive control. We overcame all these difficulties, and each member of the team continues to maintain an enthusiastic and fighting spirit. The test results are very promising and development of the diagnostic tests look close to success. We hope that our diagnosis platforms can help to resolve the urgent need for accurate diagnostics and contribute to the fight against the epidemic.
海康的精英团队(分别在香港和北京)全天候工作,为新的冠状病毒COVID-19开发高灵敏度及特异性稳定的诊断产品。因正值疫情特别时期,国家对市政交通、市民延期复工有强制管控措施,所以我们外购的实验原材料,例如试剂组分所需的酶、引物、阳性对照供应商缺货,且多数企业员工还未复工,实验测试所必须的病毒样品我们无法获得,种种外界因素给实验带来重重阻碍。团队积极采取应对措施,延期发货的,我们亲自提货,一家延期,我们再找寻10家,选择最快的;缺少病毒样品作阳性对照,我们使用合成的质粒作为替代。我们克服了一切困难,团队每位成员保持激昂的热情和斗志,犹如战士冲锋陷阵,攻无不克、战无不胜,历时一周多的时间,验证测试结果令人非常满意,我们用事实数据说话,诊断测试产品即将面世。希望多诊断平台的产品可以帮助卫生系统解决对准确诊断的迫切需求,并为抗击疫情做出自己的贡献。


WE ARE CLOSE. KEEP ON FIGHTING!
我们快成功了! 加油!
