Bio-testing Technology Revolutionises Existing Tests

Home-grown Bio-testing Innovation, Vitargent Improves Global Product Safety Testing Standards

With rising public concerns on food safety following the melamine, gutter oil and plasticizer scandals, Vitargent (International) Biotechnology Ltd. (“Vitargent”), a technology start-up incubateed by Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (“HKSTP”) introduced its first-in-the-world “transgenic medaka” and “zebrafish fish” embryo toxicity (FET) testing technologies, to reform existing scientific tests and raise global product safety testing standards.

“Food Safety” is the theme of 2015 World Health Day. According to the World Health Organisation, unsafe food is linked to the deaths of an estimated two million people annually. Chemical contamination can also lead to diseases such as cancer. New safety threats on food and consumer goods are constantly emerging while changes in production, distribution and consumption all pose challenges to the national product safety system.
