Canada's Isotechnika has received approval in China to sell its Helikit, a noninvasive, non-radioactive breath test kit for Helicobacter pylori. The Edmonton, Alberta firm says it now holds two licences for the importation of the Helikit into China, with additional licences held in Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Mexico and Taiwan. It has also secured a Taiwan-based distributor for Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong, called Success Vision Biotek. As part of the agreement, the distributor will purchase a minimum of 180,000 kits over a three-year period. An order for 12 Isomax point-of-care analysers for use with the Helikit has also been placed and is expected to be filled by the end of the year, Isotechnika adds.
