Research Collaboration on Personalised Healthcare

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between a global leader in genomics and gene sequencing BGI and Xing Technologies is signed on 22 Aug 2018 supporting collaborative research and product innovation in the following areas: DNB technology: optimise current DNA nanoball technology to improve sequencing data quality and throughput resulting in reduced sequencing costs;

Point-of-care product: based on XING’s patented “Laboratory in a Drop” technology, undertake joint research into, and manufacturing of, a transformative diagnostic product developed by XING to offer the world, including millions of Australians, an accurate, rapid and inexpensive point-of-care disease screening, diagnosis & monitoring kit, which will revolutionise current practice. The applications even extend to human health as well as animals and plant material, such as agriculture, aquaculture, veterinary science.

Xing Technologies, the bio-nanotechnology innovator, is a UQ spin-off enterprise specialising in world-leading disease diagnosis and monitoring technologies, including cancer. Its proprietary nano-technologies are transforming the future practice of medicine and healthcare.
