SANDY, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CODX) (“Co-Diagnostics” or the “Company”), a molecular diagnostics company with a unique, proprietary platform for the development of diagnostic tests, announced today that they have strengthened relationships with key regional customers throughout the Caribbean basin to purchase the Company’s Zika virus diagnostic.
The potential customer base includes laboratories, regional health ministries, and hospitals interested in offering a state-of-the-art molecular diagnostic for the Zika virus to their customers, citizens, and patients. To date, Company representatives and future product distributors have conducted on-site suitability assessments at dozens of locations in countries across the region, with the understanding that these locations would be among the first to have access to the Zika virus test upon completion of successful performance evaluation and validation studies.

Dwight Egan, Co-Diagnostics CEO, remarked, “Molecular diagnostics are the internationally recognized gold standard in disease detection, and Co-Diagnostics’ assays are built on our own platform without expensive royalty payments built in to the cost. We are uniquely positioned to assist the many overlooked and underserved populations in this region interested in a competitively priced, high quality diagnostic tool to assist in the detection of the Zika virus.”
