Tech Review highlights a test from Adnavance that can detect methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus without culturing the bacteria or amplifying the DNA. Instead, the Adnavance test is built on top of a gold electrode that is covered with a proprietary marker. The marker binds MRSA and when a current flows through the gold electrode, it attracts the DNA. CEO Randy White says they plan to launch the test in 2011 at a price of about $60.
