Founded in 2015, Quiknos connects rural clinics to medical labs using its mobile platform and medical logistics system. They offer medical testing of blood, urine, liver function, Hepatitis B and more, which enable rural clinics and patients to access the best medical test service in China.
Quiknos’ businesses cover both digital health and smart mobility, which are two investment focus areas for NGP Capital. In the past years, NGP Capital has been actively investing behind opportunities in the 3rd and 4th tier rural areas of China.
David Tang, Managing Partner of NGP Capital stated, “Currently, only 11% of patients in rural areas have access to medical testing, and the inequality of medical resources need to be addressed. The market potential is huge and it is growing steadily. We believe Quiknos is able to provide quality medical treatment to more people in lower tier areas and we are happy to be part of the journey.”
“We are delighted to see that since our Series A in 2017, Quiknos has quickly become the industry leader by geographical expansion and test items increase. Therefore, we decided to increase our investment to further empower the company’s development, which will benefit the whole primary health care market.“ Wu Kai, Partner of Softbank China stated.
Charles Wang, Founder and CEO of Quiknos said, “We are happy to have the leading VCs working with us. During the past years we have been growing fast, and with the funds raised this round, we are able to expand our business making medical tests more accessible for mass population. We aim to enhance our service quality, develop new services for better user experiences. Our goal is to become the most trusted primary medical service platform in China.”
