Seegene's all-in-one platform can quickly deliver results from varies tests in relatively small spaces
One reference laboratory in Korea* introduced a 1 day reporting system using Seegene's “All-in-one” platform, which gave the industry a huge repercussions. The SMF collects samples twice(day time & night time) a day and provides results online. Infectious Diseases, Women's Health, STI, Gastrointestinal Disease, Drug-resistance and Laboratory developed tests are available on the schedule. (*SMF: Seegene medical foundation)
SMF used the customized platform with MagNapure 96 (Roche). The PCR set up consisted of "multiple items on multiple plates", "mixed batch testing on a single plate" and “Laboratory developed tests”.
Consolidation of lab operation with one platform
Since the introduction of MDx, The SMF has risen from the seventh to the third in the industry in three years.
Total growth rate
Number of MDx test targets
Previously, SMF offered services in various fields such as clinical chemistry, immunology, hematology, microbiology, special chemistry, cytogenetics and pathology.
However, after one year of trial operation with Seegene’s MDx assays, SMF has expanded its MDx facilities in multifold and their MDx business has been ramping up every year. The SMF was also the first in the industry to establish a one day report system for MDx testing, with the benefit of Seegene’s MDx system which enables simultaneous detection of multiple targets.
The SMF was to establish a one-day report system for molecular diagnostics testing, which greatly reduced the time it takes for physicians and patients for test results.

In addition to the advantage of MDx testing to deliver quick results, Seegene’s technologies enable to run various tests simultaneously under uniform PCR test conditions on a single instrument platform. Such one day report policy & unique and broad test menu utilizing Seegene’s MDx assays helped SMF expand their customer base and set them apart from other competing reference laboratories. Daily collected samples were tested overnight to deliver next day results. Hospitals were able to obtain more clinical information per test from Seegene’s high multiplex assays, which made it possible for them to perform effective treatment.
