The Viral Vesicular Panel is currently intended for surveillance purposes only and runs on the firm's QiaStat-Dx instrument with a test time of approximately one hour.
Boston Heart Diagnostics LipidSeq
Boston Heart Diagnostics, a Eurofins company, has launched the LipidSeq genetic test for cardiovascular disease. A saliva-based, 23-gene, next-generation sequencing test, LipidSeq identifies the most common genetic causes of lipid and lipoprotein disorders associated with premature cardiovascular, pancreatic, kidney, and neurological diseases. Specific conditions detected by the test include familial forms of hypercholesterolemia, lysosomal acid lipase deficiency, sitosterolemia, cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis, dysbetalipoproteinemia, hypertriglyceridemia, and HDL deficiency states including ApoA-I deficiency, Tangier disease, and LCAT deficiency.
LipidSeq was developed in collaboration with Eurofins laboratory partner Clinical Enterprise, which performs the genetic sequencing, and in consultation with Robert Hegele of Robarts Research Institute in London, Ontario.
