Microbix Participating in COVID-19 Virtual Conference
Presentation and Panel Participation at Adelaide Capital Event on April 23
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Microbix Biosystems Inc. (TSX: MBX, Microbix), an award-winning life sciences innovator and exporter, announces that it will be
participating in the “Virtual COVID & Healthcare Mini Conference” being hosted by Adelaide Capital on April 23 from 12:00-5:00 PM ET.
The conference will showcase the contributions that Canadian companies are making to help fight the coronavirus pandemic. Microbix will be discussing its longstanding work in providing the biological core of many existing diagnostic tests for infectious diseases, including for multiple respiratory viruses and bacteria. Additionally, Microbix will discuss how its Quality Assessment Products (QAPs) can help ensure the accuracy of diagnostic tests, including tests for respiratory viruses and, in particular, about its important new REDxFLOQ SARS-CoV-2 swab-based and REDx SARS-CoV-2 liquid-format QAPs.
It has been widely reported that the recently-deployed tests for the virus causing COVID-19 disease are providing results of questionable accuracy – sometimes giving “false negative,” or “false positive” results. Microbix’s new QAPs are designed to increase the reliability of testing for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
The conference will consist of a series of 20-minute corporate presentations, a panel discussion of critical pandemic-related issues, and a keynote presentation by Mr. Eden Rahim of Next Edge Capital. Mr. Rahim is a highly-respected life-sciences portfolio manager and his presentation at the conference is entitled, “Signal from the Noise: A compass to finding COVID-19 investment opportunities.”
