Pangyo Research Center opens to enter the global bio-diagnostic equipment market


Vieworks, a leading imaging solution provider, announced on the 14th that it will build a full lineup of bio-diagnostic equipment and enter the global bio industry in earnest with the opening of its Pangyo Research Center.

Vieworks Pangyo Research Center will continue to develop Raman-based on-site diagnostic equipment through joint research with Modern Value Ltd., a company in which Vieworks participated in last year. 

Modern Value has a unique technology to amplify Raman signals, and Vieworks has technology related to camera modules optimized for gene amplification (PCR) systems, which are expected to have synergistic effects on product development and commercialization. In addition, Vieworks will continue to develop slide scanners, a digital pathology diagnostic equipment that has relied on foreign products.

Vieworks is already recognized for its top-notch technology in the field of medical image processing and analysis. Therefore, through the opening of the Pangyo Research Center and collaboration with Modern Value, we plan to enter the field diagnosis and in vitro diagnosis equipment in earnest, build a full lineup of internal and external diagnostic equipment, and accelerate our entry into the global bio diagnostic equipment market.


The opening ceremony was attended by CEO Hoo Shik Kim, and employees of Vieworks, and executives and employees of Modern Value, which is collaborating to develop diagnostic equipment, to discuss the direction of future joint R&D. Professor Do-Kyung Kim, an expert in in vitro diagnostic technology evaluation, was invited to give a seminar on in vitro diagnostic technology trends. 

"We expect the in vitro diagnostic equipment business to be an important growth engine for Vieworks in the future and are increasing our investment," said Hoo Shik Kim, CEO of Vieworks. 

Meanwhile, the Raman-based on-site diagnostic equipment that Vieworks is jointly researching and developing with Modern Value is a technology that can reliably detect and quantify ultra-fine signals by compensating for the shortcomings of existing surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). 

As a result, it dramatically improves diagnostic accuracy compared to diagnostic equipment using conventional SERS, enabling customized and targeted treatment, and enables diagnostic results to be obtained immediately after capturing Raman signals. The development of this Raman-based on-site inspection system is expected to be the world's first in this field.
