MyEG Philippines, Inc. (MyEG PH) seals a partnership with IP Biotech, Inc. (IPB), and Family Vaccine & Specialty Clinics, Inc. (FVSC) for the introduction of an at-home saliva-based COVID-19 testing service.

MyEG PH is a market leader in electronic solutions championing government services online automation. IP Biotech, Inc. (IPB) is a licensed importer of vaccines and medical devices in the Philippines. While, Family Vaccine & Specialty Clinics, Inc. (FVSC) is one of the largest chain of vaccination clinics in the country that delivers quality health care services to Filipinos.

The availability of the FDA-approved saliva-based COVID-19 testing service for the Philippine market is aimed at helping the country’s fight against the ongoing pandemic by accelerating and enhancing the screening of the population using a safe and non-invasive testing method.

MyEG is introducing a game-changing approach of enabling home and on-site corporate collection of saliva samples by licensed medical professionals with their exclusive distributorship of VereRT ZeroPrep Covid 19 PCR Kit — developed by Singapore-based biotechnology company Veredus Laboratories that specializes in developing portable diagnostic tool kits. Collected specimens are then sent to their partner laboratories for processing with the results available within 1-2 working days.

This saliva-based kit has received the approval of the Philippine Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has also been approved for use in Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand. The test kit can also detect the new strains of Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) that have been reported in the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Brazil.

Making such a hassle-free approach to testing available to the public would be very much in line with the convenient, doorstep delivery of a myriad government and ancillary services that MyEG is already known for. Furthermore, this effort can help ease the pressure on the country’s frontline workers who have been working tirelessly in the past year.

In the wake of the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, MyEG has leveraged its strengths and expertise as a leading digital services provider in the region to embark on a number of significant initiatives, guided by a vision to provide a holistic solution to help in the fight against COVID-19.
