Our Story

Sanwa BioTech was established in December 2012 with the vision of transforming the diagnostic landscape.


Our mission is to save lives by streamlining clinical diagnostic processes. We focus on combating known and unknown, time-critical and life-threatening disease outbreaks with our automated, multi-target diagnostic testing platform.

To accomplish our mission, we have created more effective personalized Point-Of-Care Testing (POCT) and preventative healthcare solutions. This provides patients with diagnostic results and suitable treatment at unprecedented speeds. Requiring only 15 minutes and a single drop of sample, this rapid and portable Lab-On-Chip platform can be used in human healthcare, pet health, livestock screening, and food safety for disease monitoring, especially at the human-animal interface (HAI) to combat infectious disease outbreaks.


Our vision remains unchanged and we have been working hard to become a key player in Asia with design, knowhow, and manufacturing capability, all vertically integrated. Fast forward to today, we now have 50+ staff working (with 40% Phd and master’s degrees, 58% R&D staff) round the clock during the newest crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The core team of Sanwa BioTech comprises of members from cross-functional backgrounds in business, biotechnology, advanced micromachining, and microfluidic Lab-On-Chip (LOC) technologies. Fueld by a strong entrepreneurial passion, the team came together to revolutionize the healthcare industry by developing a ground-breaking Point-Of-Care Testing (POCT) platform and advanced biochip to provide faster diagnosis results and save lives.
