The University of Macau (UM) has launched a new Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) testing service for Macao-based manufacturers and companies, Journal Tribuna de Macau reports.

Through trial operations, which will be run by the Macao Centre for Testing of Chinese Medicine (MCTCM), UM hopes to obtain more official certifications from the China National Accreditation Service (CNAS).

MCTCM’s director, Professor Li Shaoping, has noted that “the centre will facilitate the development of the Chinese medicine industry in Macao” in support of the government’s economic diversification strategy.

The MCTCM was established in 2022 and passed on-site assessments conducted by the CNAS in late 2023, earning its first official certification. 

The centre leverages academic research from UM’s State Key Laboratory of Quality Research in Chinese Medicine. According to UM’s website, the laboratory aims to serve as a “comprehensive R&D platform,” establishing “scientific quality standards” for TCM products and participating in international exchanges.

It also provides technical support to the Pharmaceutical Administration Bureau.
