MYEG signs on to be Breathonix breath test distributor in Malaysia


KUALA LUMPUR: My EG Services Bhd has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Singapore's Breathonix Pte Ltd to introduce a rapid breath test system for Covid-19 screening in Malaysia.

It said in a statement that it will apply for the requisite regulatory approvals and certifications for the Breathonix breath tests to be made commercially available in Malaysia.

"Upon completing the relevant approval process, MYEG will be appointed as Breathonix’s exclusive distribution partner to undertake the commercial sale and marketing of its technology and associated systems in Malaysia," it said.

Breathonix has developed a real-time breath test system for the qualitative detection of volatile organic compounds that are unique to Covid-19 in human breath specimens.

"Compared with Real-time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR), which is costly and time-consuming, Breathonix’s breath test system is a non-invasive, accurate and affordable solution that can generate results within a minute, making it particularly suitable for mass screening in high-traffic locations," said MY EG.
