BEIJING, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

On March 19, the 2019-nCoV Detection Kit and Nucleic Acid Extraction Donation & 
Shipment Ceremony was held in Beijing. Beijing Applied Biological Technologies 
Co., Ltd. (XABT) was invited to the event at which the biologics maker donated 
an allotment of nucleic acid detection kits that it had produced to Italy. 
Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries president 
and China Peace and Development Foundation honorary president Li Xiaolin, as 
well as Italian ambassador to China Luca Ferrari delivered speeches at the 
event.

At the ceremony, ambassador Luca Ferrari, on behalf of the Italian government 
and people, thanked the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with 
Foreign Countries, the China Peace and Development Foundation and XABT for the 
sincere assistance they were providing to Italy. He emphasized the phrase "a 
friend in need is a friend indeed," during his speech. The fact that China and 
Italy are helping each other in facing the crisis shows the deep friendship 
between the two countries. With close solidarity, China and Italy will surely 
overcome the epidemic and do so soon. 

Nucleic acid detection is an important detection and screening method for 
2019-nCoV used by the World Health Organization (WHO) and national health 
authorities. XABT, among all the companies that have obtained the registration 
certificate from the National Medical Products Administration of China for the 
coronavirus nucleic acid detection reagent, is one of the few high-tech 
companies producing the rapid detection technology covering three genes, 
ORF1ab, N and E. The company's 2019-nCoV nucleic acid detection kit 
(fluorescence PCR method) can achieve up to 99.9% accuracy due to the specific 
binding at the molecular level. The company has received the ISO13485 system 
certification, and its products, all of which conform to the CE certification 
standards of the European Union, are being adopted by more and more countries 
as a tool to control and prevent the further spread of the virus.
