HIV alone has affected almost 71 million people since the beginning of the epidemic¹, and worldwide, 500 million people are estimated to be infected with hepatitis B or C². BBI plan to expand the SCIPAC range as the supply of infectious disease samples become more readily available, in order to continually assist in the battle against these deadly diseases.
