‘CLEAr’ yourself from the worry of COVID-19 infections

HOMEGROWN medical technology startup, CLEA is introducing its first virtual COVID-19 screening app to help create an ecosystem where individuals, businesses and medical professionals can ensure maximum protection from COVID-19 or any other highly transmissible illnesses for that matter.

With the app, CLEA automates and streamlines COVID-19 screening while seamlessly ensuring that the results are verified by medically qualified doctors.

In addition to authenticity, the CLEA platform is also an affordable method of screening as it does not require users to schedule in-person consultations.

By saving users and medical personnel from having unnecessary physical contact, CLEA reduces the risk of infection while reducing the time taken for a successful COVID-19 screening.

Through an in-app recording feature, users can submit their test to CLEA’s medical partners comprising licensed, experienced doctors equipped with a verification panel that virtually verifies the user’s identity and results within 24 hours.

The test authenticity is guaranteed through unique TAC codes and results can be viewed and downloaded at any time. Once certified, users will be issued certificates which can be used as entry passes to any premises that require screening test reports.


CLEA also partnered with Gmate in efforts to develop its own COVID-19 rapid self-test kit that is approved by the Medical Decive Authority (MDA).

“We created CLEA to address multiple gaps that have arisen amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. On-site mass screenings, though encouraged to accurately diagnose new cases, can further expose the public unnecessarily to the virus. Combined with the fact that it is time-consuming, we believe that this practice can be further improved on,” explained CLEA co-founder and CEO Dr Chan Hai Feng.

CLEA’s ecosystem is also equipped with an HR management portal, allowing employers to regularly monitor their employee’s last screen date and COVID-19 status.

Furthermore, the platform will also allow companies to pre-plan their workforce needs with data from the management portal, thus reducing unnecessary disruptions in workplace operations due to an outbreak and allowing employees to be able to start work immediately upon arrival without having to go through the hassle of multiple manual on-site screenings.

“Businesses have been under a lot of strain and pressure to stay afloat due to the multiple lockdown measures over the last year and a half. Our solution ensures that they can rest assured knowing that CLEA is able to help manage the screening process for their employees and customers efficiently,” Dr Chan added. – Dec 4, 2021
