Customer Reviews
We recently started selling your HCG tests via our Australian partner and have been very impressed with the quality and consistency of the tests. They seem to be superior to our current manufacturer and we also know that you are far more reliable in terms of production times and communication.

—— One customer from Europe

We would like to explore the possibility of switching our HCG tests over to you. We have been reluctant in the past to move everything over to you as it makes us very reliant on you. However, we have always found you to be by far the most reliable of all our Chinese manufacturers and so we feel comfortable strengthening our partnership further

My oldest daughter actually has Lyme disease. She spent almost 1 year in a wheelchair because of Lyme. She is doing very well now. I used 2 of the samples. 1 to test my Lyme diagnosed daughter and 1 to test my daughter who does not have Lyme. Your tests worked well. My daughter with Lyme tested positive and the one who does not tested negative.

Why are cases of HIV infections on the rise among girls?
Latest company news about Why are cases of HIV infections on the rise among girls?

According to a recent global snapshot released by UNICEF, the burden of HIV disproportionately falls on adolescent girls and children in certain regions of the world. Although children and adolescents aged 19 and below account for only 7% of HIV infections, they make up 15% of deaths related to AIDS-related illnesses. Overall, the global incidence of HIV has decreased from previous levels. However, the concerning snapshot released by UNICEF reveals that the crisis still persists for many adolescent girls and children in several regions.


In 2022, 99,000 girls and children died from HIV-related causes or AIDS in its advanced and severe stage. The most affected are girls and children in Eastern and Southern Africa, followed by West and Central Africa, East Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, and South Asia.


The increasing incidence of HIV infection among young girls can be attributed to several factors. These include the early initiation of sexual activity, engagement in intergenerational relationships, high vulnerability due to socioeconomic circumstances, involvement in transactional sex, early marriage, limited access to education and lower levels of school attendance, gender-related power imbalances and violence, as well as a lack of services specifically tailored to meet the needs of adolescents and youth. Over 90% of pediatric HIV infections are transmitted from infected mothers during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding.


The WHO states that without better access to diagnosis and treatment, 50% of HIV-infected children will die before the age of 2, and 80% will not survive beyond their 5th birthday.


The impact of HIV on children is particularly severe as their young immune systems are unable to resist infection like adults. These children subsequently experience various health problems, including ear and sinus infections, sepsis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal diseases, skin conditions, and meningitis.


The WHO recommends testing infants born to HIV-infected mothers at 2 months of age, during the breastfeeding period, and at the end of breastfeeding to mitigate ongoing transmission risks.
