Webinar TB – Lurking in the shadows of COVID-19

This event is co-organised by Pantai Premier Pathology and QIAGEN.

According to “Stop TB Partnership”, Tuberculosis (TB) remains the world’s biggest infectious disease killer, claiming around 1.5 million people globally every year (1). In Malaysia alone, more than 25,000 new cases of TB were reported in 2018 (2).
A global reduction of 25% in TB detection for 3 months due to the disruption of TB services from the COVID-19 pandemic could result in a 13% increase of TB deaths (3). As a result, we could see an additional 1.4 million TB deaths between 2020 and 2025 (3).
Join us in this live webinar as we discuss how we can best meet the UN’s call to maintain critical TB testing and treatment services during the COVID-19 pandemic response. Register now.

COVID-19 sampling and testing services available for

individuals and corporations


11 March 2020 – The Ministry of Health (MoH) Malaysia has initiated home-based COVID-19 sampling services to meet the demands of the public for COVID-19 testing at government hospitals but do not meet the patient under investigation (PUI) criteria.

Pantai Premier Pathology has been selected and endorsed as one of the four private laboratories to provide this service to the community.

As part of this collaboration with MoH, Pantai Premier Pathology will visit the homes of individuals who want to test for COVID-19. Qualified doctors and trained staff nurses will carry out the swab test on the individual and send it to the laboratory of Pantai Premier Pathology for analysis and evaluation.

Corporations that would like to conduct COVID-19 testing for their staff at their respective offices can also make use of this service by Pantai Premier Pathology, which includes transportation and appropriate sample collections on site.

Pantai Premier Pathology is currently offering this service independently and through all Pantai Hospitals in the Klang Valley, Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur and Pantai Hospital Ayer Keroh.

Plans are in the pipeline to expand this service to Gleneagles Hospitals and Pantai Hospitals in Penang, Perak and Johor. In addition, Pantai Premier Pathology will work with its GP partners to provide COVID-19 testing to all other communities across Malaysia.
