On the afternoon of March 17, 2022, the Champa LSEA Laboratory, an integrated-automation nucleic acid testing laboratory led by Belt and Road Life Sciences Economy Alliance (hereinafter referred to as “LSEA”), was launched in the Champasak Hospital in Pakse, a famous historic city in southern Laos. The laboratory, at the call of LSEA, is jointly developed by Laos STD Co., Ltd., MGI, the BGI Laos branch, Laos 520 Group, etc., aiming at promoting the high-throughput testing facilities, technologies and cooperation mechanisms that comply with the requirements from World Health Organization as well as the Belt and Road Regional Standards, covering the inadequacy of COVID-19 testing capacity in southern Laos under the new epidemic normal, and guaranteeing various diseases testing demands with surrounding countries and social security needs after Lao customs reopened. In the context of China-Laos Railway beginning operations, and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) going into force, it will take the responsibility in the filed of health for achieving the promotion of forming of the community of shared future for China and Laos, the development of the ASEAN community, and the dynamic integration between ASEAN and the Belt and Road initiative .

The laboratory adopts a "mobile" and “integrated-automation” design, which can realize 24-hour samples collection and testing, and the daily testing throughput can meet the nucleic acid testing needs of 30,000 samples. The design enables the Champa LSEA Laboratory not only to carry out nucleic acid testing quickly and flexibly in the forefront of local areas where public health emergencies occur but also to detect regional diseases such as malaria and dengue fever without dismantling any parts or changing the number of equipment. The laboratory can help to effectively enhance the prevention and control capability of COVID-19 spread in Laos, and further raise the precaution and response level for a public health event.

Li Taosha, Secretary General of the LSEA, expressed, “when COVID-19 widespread seriously affects the growth of the global economy and people's daily life, the Champa LSEA Laboratory, jointly built by the LSEA with the cooperation of Laos Ministry of Health, STD and other LSEA members, hopefully does not only offer effective help to the local government in monitoring and controlling the COVID-19 pandemic, but also provides the testing platforms to support for the local public health services in future needs as well. LSEA , will call on more LSEA members henceforth to participate in life sciences and technologies innovation, industrial development and young professionals training according to local conditions in merely Laos but also more countries and regions along the Belt and Road, to help people get rid of the adverse effects of COVID-19 as soon as possible.”

Mr. Khamsing Keothongku, President of Champasak Hospital, spoke highly of the Champa LSEA Laboratory. “The Champa LSEA Laboratory established under the cooperation with LSEA, and STD will be a great news for the prevention and control of the COVID-19 widespread in Champasak and surrounding provinces and cities, as the advanced equipment on board will help the medical personnel in Champasak more professional and technology-based in such application fields as COVID-19 testing.”

Vincent Li, president of STD, said “the Champa LSEA Laboratory project is designed to service the four major cities in southern Laos comprehensively by detecting COVID-19 virus with advanced equipment at a maximum of 30000 samples per day. It is planned to align China’s and Laos’ healthcare and disease prevention systems next for facilitating the border opening, interactions, trades and investments between the two countries. Lao government has introduced the “Travel Green Bubbles Plan”, the Champa LSEA Laboratory is able to provide a safe environment of tourism and business activities for overseas tourists and the Lao populace in many places, such as Si Phan Don New Area of Khong District, Champasak Province.

“We are very pleased to see the completion of the Champa LSEA Laboratory project, which represents an achievement with the approval of the Laos Ministry of Health and the support of the LSEA. At the same time, it will encourage more hard-core scientific and technological equipment and technologies to emerge in the region”, said Dr Tan Hongdong, head of MGI Asia Pacific.

In addition to coping with infectious diseases, the Champa LSEA Laboratory will also serve as long-term public health infrastructure in Laos, and will continue to escort the local area as a strong assistance in the fields of health, such as tumor screening, precision medicine guidance, etc.

 LSEA take the Champa LSEA Laboratory project as a demonstration to strengthen the cooperation with ASEAN, the European Union, the African Union, and other countries and regions along the Belt and Road in the field of life sciences, to substantially contribute to the life sciences and technologies for the benefit of mankind, and to engage into a community with a healthy future for mankind..
