Genomtec to debut on NewConnect
Genomtec became famous this year for its rapid coronavirus COVID-19 test, which detects the presence of the pathogen in just a few minutes. The company is constantly investing in the development of this solution and plans to commercialise the mobile molecular analyser in the first half of 2022. In the years 2020-2022, it will implement a project entitled “Development of mobile diagnostic equipment for the detection of COVID-19”, for which it obtained funding from the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR) in the amount of PLN 7m. The total cost of the project was estimated at nearly PLN 11m.
Genomtec also informed at the beginning of September that it intends to debut on NewConnect by the end of the year. Ultimately, the company would like to be listed on the WSE main market.
