Sysmex was the first to obtain marketing approval in Japan for a COVID-19 test kit (RT-PCR method). We have taken the lead in working with the city of Kobe through an industry–government alliance to build and operate a system to serve as a role model for strengthening PCR testing. In various countries around the world, the Sysmex Group is also donating supplies to medical professionals.
Kobe City Support Fund for Medical Professionals expresses gratitude to, and supports the activities of, the medical professionals who are working around the clock on the front lines to treat and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Contributions to this fund are channeled to medical institutions in Kobe. Sysmex supports the goal of this fund, which is to improve the working conditions of medical professionals during this crisis.
Sysmex believes its mission is to support the medical professionals who are on the frontline of the fight to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are ensuring the continuity of clinical testing that these professionals perform daily in various healthcare settings around the world, to overcome this difficult situation together. To this end, we are trying our utmost to ensure a stable supply of products and services. In addition, to successfully combat theCOVID-19 pandemic and bring things under control as soon as possible, we are working to develop new diagnostic technologies, prevent the further spread of infection, and ensure our employees’ safety.
