The signing ceremony was held during the 2022 World Health Expo. This Health Expo was co-hosted by the Hubei Provincial People’s Government, the National Health Commission, and the Wuhan Municipal People’s Government.

In his speech, Mr. Tao Ni, Roche Diagnostics Senior Market Director, said that Roche Diagnostics’ cooperation with WALT is based on patients’ needs. Due to changes in residents’ dietary structure, the incidence of digestive tract cancers and colorectal cancer is increasing. WALT, based on the differences between the left and right colon, has globally pioneered the SDC2/TFPI2 dual-target detection technology – SDC2 gene methylation is more sensitive to right-sided colon tumors, and TFPI2 gene methylation is more sensitive to left-sided colon tumors. The combined detection of the two targets can comprehensively improve the detection sensitivity of left and right colon cancer to 95.3%. Combined with Roches high-precision PCR detection platform, the detection quality will be better guaranteed. Based on the Healthy China guidelines recommending people over 40 to undergo DNA methylation screening every three years. WALT and Roche Diagnostics will take this as a starting point and expand cooperation in the field of early screening and diagnosis of tumors in the future, benefiting more families and patients. Mr. Jintian Chen, Roche Diagnostics Vice President of China, expressed his vision and blessing for the cooperation between the two parties online.
