As previously announced, SAGE was appointed in December 2021 to serve as a non-exclusive licensee and distributor for Volition's Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test in centralized labs in Singapore. Following pre-launch preparations, SAGE hosted a launch event featuring Professor Heather Wilson-Robles, Chief Medical Officer, Volition Veterinary, and Dr. Tom Butera, Chief Executive Officer, Volition Veterinary on Friday, April 22. SAGE is now actively marketing the Test and will be processing samples and providing test results from its centralized lab with immediate effect.
Dr. Jasmine Kway, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore Volition, commented "With rapid urbanization and rising disposable income, pets have become an important part of Asian families. Over half of the Asian population have a companion animal, with almost a third of households owning a dog. We believe that the opportunity for the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test is huge. SAGE Healthcare is one of the strongest and most respected distributors of leading veterinary brands in Singapore and we are delighted that the launch event was so well attended, and that active sales and marketing efforts are now underway."
"Adding the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test to the routine wellness check-up for older dogs and at-risk breeds could help detect cancer early, when treatment is more effective and affordable. We believe that this is a clear unmet need in the veterinary space," commented Ms. Irene Kum, General Manager for SAGE Healthcare Private Limited. "We are excited to launch the test in Singapore and hope to develop subsequent launch plans in other Asian markets in the future."
Volition is developing simple, easy-to-use, cost-effective blood tests to help diagnose and monitor a range of life-altering diseases including cancer in both humans and animals
