Next Genertation of Diagnostics Equipment

- through our new subsidiary: NextGenDiagnostics - www.nextgendiagnostics.biz (under construction)

VCH has partnered with a world-leading medical diagnostics company from MIT: www.nanobiosym.com and is offering revolutionary new diagnostics equipment to detect AIDS, Common Flu and soon other diseases at a 1/10 of the cost and less than 1/10 the current response time. This gives a point-of-care system to the nurse, GP pr hospital for AIDS Viral Load Testing, AIDS Drugs Resistance Testing. This is today performed by sending blood sample to labs in the USA. Expensive and slow.
