A Korean in vitro diagnostic manufacturing company, Humasis(CEO Jeong Hak Cha) will import its COVID-19 test kits to Brazil.

On April 6, Humasis announced that it has entered into an import contract with the Brazilian supplier for its 'COVID-19 IgG/IgM test', a product for rapid test kit of COVID-19 antibody. On March 27, Humasis obtained an export permit for the test kit product from Korea's Ministry of Food and Drug Safety.

With this contract, Humasis became the first diagnostic company to supply Korean test kits to the Brazilian market. Therefore, starting with the first shipment in April, a total of 1 million COVID-19 test kits will be exported to Brazil.

The contract was supported by the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA). Based in Brazil, KOTRA Sao Paulo has been connecting Korean diagnostic companies with Brazilian buyers belonging to private research institutes, state governments, and municipalities.

Humasis plans to supply COVID-19 test kits not only to Brazil but also to European countries such as Italy and Germany, and to Indonesia, Canada, the Middle East, and Africa. Over 30 countries have already requested the test kits from Humasis.

Humasis has grasped the total quantity requested by these countries to about 3 million and has switched to an emergency production system to meet this. It is judged that there will not be much difficulty in supplying the requested quantity as it is possible to produce up to 2.5 million test kits per month by introducing new automatic equipment earlier this year.
