Seegene Inc. (KQ096530), a leading South Korean company providing a total solution for PCR molecular diagnostics, announced its selection of Microsoft as a technology partner for its SG OneSystem™ business in London, UK, on January 23 to realize 'a world free from all diseases.'
Seegene will collaborate with Microsoft to help propel the growth of its SG OneSystem™ business, an unprecedented strategy by Seegene to share its unique syndromic quantitative PCR technologies with leading companies across the world to drive cross-industry innovation in molecular diagnostics. The expansion of participating companies, with whom Seegene intends to form a global consortium, will empower countries around the world with optimal solutions, enabling them to effectively address future pandemics and collectively move closer to 'a world free from all diseases.'
To realize such a goal, Seegene will work with Microsoft's global healthcare team to help further SG OneSystem™'s growth by advocating the collective vision, bridging potential partners, and jointly participating in SG OneSystem™'s annual symposium. Other key events connecting current and prospective SG OneSystem™ partners, such as a declaration ceremony for scientific communities and other partners participating in the SG OneSystem™ business will be held within the first half of this year to commemorate the shared vision.
Seegene's Digitalized Development System (SGDDS) will integrate Microsoft Azure services, including Azure OpenAI Service, which will be used by Seegene to handle the landscape of data interaction and analysis for researchers dealing with extensive data generated by the SGDDS. The implementation of the highly secure and compliant Azure Trusted Research Environment (TRE) will push the boundaries of PCR research, helping ensure both privacy and regulatory adherence. Seegene will implement Microsoft Fabric, a single AI-powered analytics platform that will unify Seegene's data and reshape how everyone accesses, manages, and acts on that data with capabilities that span data integration, data engineering, data science, data monitoring, real-time analytics, and business intelligence. The integration of AI-driven assistance through Copilot for Microsoft 365 is expected to accelerate productivity, foster innovation and enhance creativity.
Furthermore, Seegene will collaborate with Microsoft on collective healthcare innovation research, including next-generation management and analytics for PCR data, and explore future ventures within the healthcare sector. Seegene aims to improve the healthcare ecosystem with Microsoft by delivering accurate early disease diagnoses that provide the foundation for effective treatment and prevention. "The strategic collaboration with Microsoft will allow us to have a more structured SG OneSystem™ business model," said Dr. Jong-Yoon Chun, CEO and founder of Seegene. "Through our joint efforts, we expect synergetic effects to pave the way for a world free from all diseases."
"We support Seegene's vision of realizing 'a world free from all diseases,'" said Elena Bonfiglioli, General Manager, Global Health and Life Sciences at Microsoft. "In addition to working with Seegene on its digital transformation, we will collaborate to discover global partners and to further enhance the healthcare ecosystem."
