On initial investigation, we have confirmed that we have not supplied to the sellers on Shopee except Watsons online store on Shopee. FlowFlex is currently a victim of a sophisticated counterfeiting activity globally. We are currently investigating the extend of the alleged counterfeiting activities on Shopee. In the meantime, we advise consumers to not purchase FlowFlex ART on Shopee until investigations are completed. Shopee is not one of our distribution channel for FlowFlex ARTs. 

FlowFlex banned in Taiwan due to counterfeits

There was a ban on the sale and importation of Flowflex COVID-19 rapid test kits in Taiwan, after 2.37 million flawed kits, allegedly made in China, entered the Taiwanese market. Importers allegedly imported poor-quality kits from China illegally and sold them as US-made products, Taiwan FDA section chief Fu Ying-hsien  said.
