Bringing Health-Related Technologies Closer to the Filipino and Beyond
We are committed to ensuring the Filipino to be at the center of development for health-related molecular diagnostic, biotechnology products and services.
Our people is our principal asset.
The company prides itself to have a team of highly trained, dedicated, multi awarded roster of scientists-entrepreneurs, infectious disease experts, molecular pathologists, epidemiologist,
molecular biologists, microbiologists and regulatory experts that believes in the role of science and technology research in nation building.
Over the last 5 years, our team has been silently working in the laboratory to find diagnostic solutions to diseases in which timely diagnosis could potentially save lives. We all shared in the vision that someday, we will not just sit on the side-lines while our foreign counterparts find solutions to our own health problems, but as Filipino scientists finding solutions to the health problems of our fellow Filipinos and beyond.
Manila HealthTek, Inc. (MTek, Inc.) is the first of its kind in the Philippines. It is principally a private Research and Development company with a robust diagnostic technology pipeline. As a first ever university spin-off from the University of the Philippines, it will develop and manufacture portable diagnostic kits for the diagnosis of selected infectious diseases in the Philippines and in the region. MTek, Inc. recognizes the potential of the isothermal platform and other emerging biotechnologies to be utilized in designing novel and quality point-of-care diagnostic kits that are as rapid and accurate as the most advanced molecular diagnostic tools available in the market, yet affordable to a majority of low-to-middle income Filipino patients who are mostly the ones afflicted with infectious diseases. As such, MTek, Inc. hopes to help in reducing the burden of infectious diseases by providing timely diagnostic intervention through affordable, simple yet accurate technologies. Moreover, scale-up manufacturing and commercialization of an array of diagnostic kits in the product pipeline provides an excellent opportunity to contribute to the macroeconomic growth of the country. The company is founded and managed by highly-trained and multi-awarded Filipino scientists and experienced partner-entrepreneurs. We will likewise be the home of similar Filipino scientists who will be at the forefront of science and research in the region without having to leave the country.
Come share the vision with us. Science for Filipinos, Filipinos for Science. Mabuhay to all!
