“Mindray underwent a custom R&D and design process to account for unique characteristics
in our giant pandas’ samples. This act of co-innovation has made a meaningful contribution
to the clinical relevance of our work.”

Veterinary Hospital at Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breedin
Known as the “national treasure” of China, the giant panda is a rare and endangered
wild animal with a population of less than 2,000. In order to save and protect this
endangered species, the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding (or “Chengdu
Panda Base”) proactively engages in giant panda conservation work, strengthening
the artificial breeding process to increase their numbers, and also rewilding giant
pandas to supplement and rejuvenate their wild population.
The veterinarians at the Chengdu Panda Base closely monitor every aspect of the
pandas’ daily lives, including their fertility and reproduction. They perform daily
examinations on the giant pandas to actively prevent disease. A core requirement
of veterinarians at the base is how to make more active, expedient diagnoses.
In order to assist the vets in resolving these problems, Mindray’s Chengdu R&D Center
worked closely with the Panda Base to co-develop a custom version of the fully automated,
five-part hematology analyzer, the BC-5000Vet, to help them perform blood tests
on the pandas. This custom version of the BC-5000Vet is the result of special R&D
and design aimed at addressing the unique characteristics of panda samples to greatly
improve the efficiency of blood tests in preventing disease.
In addition, Mindray provided the Chengdu Panda Base with a fully automated BS-190
chemical analyzer, portable BeneView T1 monitors, and PM9000Vet monitors to more
comprehensively support the varied needs of panda treatment.
Today, the Chengdu Panda Base has become one of the world's foremost research centers
leading off-site conservation engineering efforts for giant pandas and other endangered
species. As the power that supports the panda protectors, Mindray will continue
to work hand-in-hand with expert veterinarians at the base to ensure the ongoing
health and propagation of these national treasures.
