The company is also in the process of securing WHO PQ and European CE certifications for multiple products.
 
Global Footprint: Cupid has successfully exported IVD kits to nations like Tanzania, Liberia, Ghana, the Philippines, and Nepal. Additionally, the company is currently in the process of product registration in Cameroon, Myanmar, Bhutan, Mozambique, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zambia, and Sierra Leone.
