Prenetics Expands Global Health Testing Capabilities with AWS | Taiwan News


With AWS, the leading genomic and diagnostic testing company has performed more than 6 million COVID-19 tests worldwide during the pandemic, increasing daily testing capacity by 8

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – December 14, 2021 – Today, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), an Amazon.com company, announced that Prenetics, a global leader in genomics and diagnostic testing, performs all its infrastructure on AWS, the global cloud leader, to provide home testing to millions of consumers worldwide. Prenetics’ COVID-19 tests are approved and recognized by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and UK governments, and supported by many global organizations including the Hong Kong Standard Chartered Marathon, Hong Kong International Airport , London Heathrow Airport, Cathay Pacific Airways, Delta Air Lines and the English Premier League (EPL). The breadth and depth of AWS’s cloud capabilities, including IT, development tools, and databases, has allowed Prenetics to significantly expand its testing capabilities while making the testing process faster. , more efficient and more profitable.

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread around the world, people needed fast, accurate, and easily accessible tests to check their health, seek timely treatment, and prevent transmission. To meet this demand, Prenetics has used the cloud to develop health solutions, including its COVID-19 testing services, which have helped people navigate the pandemic safely. With AWS ‘comprehensive suite of development services, including AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CodeDeploy, Prenetics has automated the build, test, and deployment phases of application development, allowing developers to focus on building applications. invention of new health products and functionalities. For example, Prenetics has developed Circle HealthPod, a portable, reusable, and rapid detection system that can test consumers for COVID-19 at home and in healthcare settings, such as hospitals, in about 20 minutes. Prenetics is developing single-use capsules for Circle HealthPod to detect other infectious diseases like influenza and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). To run these new tests and access the results, users simply use the Circle HealthPod mobile app, which also runs on AWS.

Using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Auto Scaling, which allows organizations to automatically add or remove Amazon EC2 instances based on the conditions they define, Prenetics automatically scales microservices for test-related tasks, including registering users and processing test results. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), a service that helps customers configure, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud, enables Prenetics to minimize database management time and focus on management of the testing process. To scale rapidly based on user demand for COVID-19 testing while remaining secure, Prenetics uses the AWS Web Application Firewall (AWS WAF) to protect its web applications and application programming interfaces ( API) against common web exploits and bots that attempt to compromise security or consume excessive infrastructure resources. In 2020, Prenetics implemented a four-day cloud infrastructure to ensure data compliance and minimize latency in Europe using AWS. Prenetics has also created a ten-day cloud-based digital health passport for the English Premier League, allowing 20 football clubs to conveniently and securely disclose their COVID-19 status to make training sessions and matches more sure, bringing the excitement of the game back to fans around the world.

“By leveraging AWS’s proven suite of services and infrastructure, we have accelerated COVID-19 testing with new innovations and easily scaled-up operations globally,” said Peter Wong, CTO of Prenetics. “We look forward to using AWS’s advanced cloud capabilities, including machine learning, to further support our global customers by providing them with the best healthcare services. ”

“State-of-the-art organizations in the health and life sciences are using the cloud to improve patient care, reduce costs, and advance precision medicine,” said Robert Wang, Managing Director, Hong Kong and Taiwan, AWS. “The COVID-19 pandemic is driving rapid innovation and transformation in the industry, and Prenetics uses the expertise and breadth and depth of AWS’s secure, reliable and scalable cloud capabilities to transform the experience of test for patients and providers. “
