GeneThera enters into a collaboration agreement with an International Construction Advisor Company to build a network of zoonotic diseases laboratory facilities
WESTMINSTER, Colo., April 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GeneThera announced today that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Cumming Corporation, a privately held international project consulting firm, specialized in the healthcare sector company. The partnership with Cumming Corporation will allow GeneThera to implement its strategy to build a global network of laboratories designed to prevent control and treat present and future pandemics. The designing of specialized, high safety level laboratory facilities has become a critical supporting component in the fight against present and future pandemics. The SARS-CoV-2 virus has changed the way life-science laboratories are designed and built. The partnership between GeneThera, Inc. and Cumming Corporation represents the first example of a multi comprehensive zoonotic diseases targeted laboratory facilities.
GeneThera laboratory facilities will be divided into five laboratory areas:
Molecular Robotics and AI based Q-PCR diagnostics
Viral Molecular Therapeutics (CRISPR-Cas-13) Technology
Support Facility to Mobile Laboratories
Biosafety Level 3 (BSL) Viral Growth Facility
Dr. Tony Milici, Chairman and CEO of GeneThera, Inc. (OTC: GTHR) stated; “We are extremely thrilled to partner with Cumming. This is a gigantic step forward for the realization of GeneThera’s Zoonotic Diseases Alert Shield System (ZIDAS) and its related technology. Thanks to the expertise and support of Cumming, we will be able to implement and expand our business model and technology platform more quickly and efficiently. Our laboratory facility in Colorado will be the first step for the creation and implementation of the ZIDAS platform both nationally and internationally. Cumming expertise and knowledge in laboratory design will provide GeneThera with the necessary tools to achieve its goal of creating a network of labs dedicated to diagnostic and therapeutic of zoonotic diseases using standardized state-of-the-art technology. As previously stated, technology standardization is absolutely vital to successfully predict control and treat pandemics. One of the lessons we must learn from the COVID-19 pandemic is that without standardized laboratory protocols and facilities, we will never be able to successfully be ahead of pandemic-causing viruses now and in the future.”
"We are very excited to partner with the team over at GeneThera, Inc. to help build laboratories that will provide safe and efficient diagnostic environments while resetting facility standards for future infectious disease research," said Jack Christensen, director at Cumming. "Being able to leverage all of the specialized knowledge of Cumming's nationwide life-sciences team allows us to implement much-needed lessons learned in lab design, space, and construction requirements from the current pandemic to deliver the next generation of laboratory environments."
