The company — which is based in the US and trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange — announced plans for the private placement earlier this month.

Researchers detected distinct antibiotic resistance patterns in untreated urban wastewater samples from northern and southern Europe.

The researchers plan to study how infectious pathogens influenced the evolutionary history of certain mental and neurological disorders.

Group K said that the partners are developing a RT-LAMP system for use at the point of care in resource-limited areas where real-time RT-PCR is not available.

The test detects genomic drug resistance mutations in HIV-1 that can lead to treatment failure and is validated on the firm's automated Sentosa workflow. 

Proceeds will be used for the anticipated regulatory submission of its gene panel test for urinary tract infections and drug resistance, among other things.

Under the agreement, Menarini will immediately begin distributing Curetis' PCR-based system in Germany, France, Benelux, the UK, and Switzerland.

Based on PCR technology acquired from Hain Diagnostics, the test and platform enable rapid detection of TB, as well as assessment of antibiotic resistance.

The number of US states legalizing cannabis for medical and recreational use is growing, expanding the market for pathogen detection solutions.

Sequencing analysis of the Enterococcus faecium isolates found that they belonged to two clades, one of which harbored numerous resistance genes.

The test detects Group A Strep in throat swab samples using the firm's rapid molecular diagnostics instrument called Revogene.

Researchers designed a PCR-based test for pyrethroid resistance based on a cytochrome P450 allele that is common in Anopheles funestus mosquitoes from Malawi.

Abbott said that the MDx platform offers a number of initial assays, including tests for HIV-1, HBV, and HCV, among others.

The partners inked a licensing deal to market and distribute TGen's DeepChek-TB as a compact, portable, and affordable diagnostic model for physician use.

The deal will enable the Australian firm to distribute its diagnostic tests in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, and Oman.

UBS granted Agilent a Buy rating and a $92 price target; Fluidigm a Neutral rating and a $14 price target; and Qiagen a Neutral rating with a $42 price target.

The Australian maker of multiplexed molecular diagnostics tests has now partnered with distributors in Germany, Austria, Sweden, and Turkey.

The test can detect resistance to two of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics used to treat strep throat, and could potentially be adapted for point-of-care use.

The company said it intends to use the proceeds of the placement to continue work on its microfluidic PCR-based platform for pathogen detection.

The test will leverage next-generation sequencing to sequence PCR amplicons of the UL54 and UL97 genes in which drug resistance with CMV has been associated.
