CE mark

The kit detects 29 mutations in exons 18, 19, 20, and 21, and has a limit of mutation detection at .1 percent in a background of wild-type DNA.

The British-based firm says that its assay detects hepatitis C via a single-use, disposable cartridge within 90 minutes of testing. 

The test, miRpredX 31-3p, is a positive theranostic test that quantifies the expression of miR-31-3p in FFPE using RT-qPCR technology. 

Based on iCubate's Amplicon-Rescued Multiplex PCR technology, the iC-GPC assay is the first of the company's portfolio's to earn CE mark.

The test is intended to detect FLT3 mutations in order to select patients for treatment with Novartis' Rydapt, and has also been approved by the US FDA.

The company's new QuantStudio 5 Dx Real-Time PCR system allows users to wield multi-modal software to detect pathogens.

The tubes enable noninvasive collection and preservation of biomarkers, such as circulating or total nucleic acids, and protein and cellular biomarkers.

T2 said that the panel will be commercially available in Europe in Q3, and added that it is in the midst of completing a pivotal trial in preparation of a submission to the FDA.

NGeneBio is moving ahead with plans to have the test cleared for diagnostic use in Korea, while envisioning a 2019 submission to the US FDA.

The test, which is currently for research use only, uses fluorescent multiplex PCR to co-amplify seven markers for analysis of the MSI-high phenotype.
