VTC Alumni Making a Difference - Aries Fung: Safeguard quality of life by professional testing
Published Date : 2022-02-28
Every day we breathe fresh air and drink clean water which are often taken for granted. Our quality life is actually safeguarded by professional technologists performing tests on specimens. The private laboratory that VTC Alumnae Aries Fung founded is one of the gatekeepers. As a laboratory accredited under HOKLAS, they focus on environmental testing, so that the lead content in drinking water or the bacterial content in air, is exposed under their microscopes.
The Laboratory’s business is on track on their seventh year in operation. Aries gives credit to her team’s effort as she said, ‘to succeed, one must not go alone, and teamwork is essential.’
As the epidemic situation is getting severe again, laboratories are now the frontiers to fight the virus. Testing for virus and sewage surveillance are treated as the key to grasp the change of epidemic situation. Aries believe that the demand on the service will be grown steadily as the citizens will only become more and more sensible on environmental safety. She encourages VTC students treasure the opportunities in the industry.
