Seegene to expand its global footprint as it secures public procurement deals in Italy, Scotland, Germany, and the Middle East
Seegene Inc., South Korea's molecular diagnostics firm, will be supplying COVID-19 diagnostic kits worth over $4.8 million to the Kuwaiti government.
Under the agreement, Seegene MIDDLE EAST will be supplying the AllplexTM SARS-CoV-2 Assay, to five laboratories under the MOH for five months starting May.
The $4.8 million deal is worth six to seven times larger than that of the company's previous exports to Kuwait in the last two quarters.
Ho Yi, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Seegene said "the company recently had procured public procurements for COVID-19 diagnostic tests in European countries including Germany, Scotland, and Italy." He added that "as the tender agreement with the Kuwaiti government is the exclusive deal, it shows the company's competitiveness in the global diagnostic tests market and hopes the agreement lay a foundation for the company expanding its market to more regions in the Middle East."
