šŸŒMedical Innovation Ventures Sdn Bhd
Medical Innovation Ventures (Mediven) is a Malaysia-based molecular diagnostic company dedicated to the development of tools that will facilitate early and fast detection of pathogens, genetic disorders, and other diseases. We focus particularly on the infectious diseases that are prevalent in developing countries in Asia, Africa, and South America.

Thermal stability of these products offers significant advantages including cold chain-free shipping and storage, thus eliminating the costs associated. As a result, our product platforms are ideal for use in developing nations, where end-use conditions can be extremely challenging for healthcare providers. Moreover, the built in features such as reliability and speed help in saving costs in many ways. For instance, savings by avoiding alternate confirmatory tests could be significant. Physicians are also saved from the dilemma of having to start expensive and often harmful precautionary treatments while waiting for results from conventional culture tests.

In 2012, Mediven was selected by the Malaysian government as one of the Economic Transformation Programmes (ETP) under the Healthcare National Key Economic Area (NKEA) as part of its Vision 2020 initiative. In 2016, Mediven was selected the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Malaysia Entrepreneurial Company of the Year in In Vitro Diagnostics for Infectious Diseases.

Early detection of diseases is the key to restore and improve health of masses in developing countries. We understand the challenges of healthcare providers in these countries where hospital facilities are often very basic. That is why Mediven focuses on developing robust products capable of withstanding shipping and storage conditions. Thermal stability of the products takes away the cold chain-associated costs from the equation, making Mediven products price competitive and suitable for developing nations. In addition, Mediven products offer high standards of accuracy and speed compared to conventional methods.

Medivenā€™s diagnostic products are based on its patented PCR platform. Currently, we offer products targeting various infectious diseases including tuberculosis, cholera, VRSA, and MRSA.  Our tools help physicians to adopt the best possible treatment strategy during the most critical early stages of an infection. Typically, healthcare providers are compelled to start treatments based on initial symptoms and qualitative results in order to avoid consequences of delayed treatments. More often, these treatments turn out to be unnecessary and toxic, creating undesirable outcomes. Rapid test kits and molecular diagnostic products offered by Mediven cut short the waiting period of confirmatory diagnosis from days or weeks (based on conventional culture methods) to a few hours.
