New Distributor for Celiac Test in China

Aug 10 2016

Beijing HuayiHuilang Medical Instrument Co.Ltd have signed an agreement for the distribution of Biohit Oyj’s Celiac Disease Quick Test in China.

The test allows the diagnosis of celiac disease from a fingertip blood sample within ten minutes. Celiac disease is a relatively common underdiagnosed autoimmune disease causing different types of stomach problems. In celiac patients the rye, wheat and barley protein (gluten) causes inflammation of the small intestine mucosa and damages the microvilli. This in turn interferes with the absorption of nutrients.

Celiac Quick Test measures all three celiac disease antibodies produced in the body. These are transglutaminase antibodies IgA/IgG/IgM. Negative results exclude celiac disease.

General Director Yisheng Fang, Beijing HuayiHuilang Medical Instrument Co. Ltd said: “In China, celiac disease has so far received insufficient attention. Biohit’s sensitive and specific Celiac Disease Quick Test helps detect celiac disease patients among those with dyspeptic symptoms. The right diagnosis and a strict diet will bring significantly better life quality to these patients.”

Semi Korpela, CEO Biohit Oyj added: “We are expanding our business operations in the large Chinese market by starting a cooperation with Beijing HuayiHuilang Medical Instrument Co.Ltd. In China there is an increasing need and expanding market for Celiac Disease Quick Test. We have started the registration in China required to obtain the marketing authorisation for the test.”
