BGI

Both RT-PCR tests are for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, and influenza B from throat swab samples.

BGI will have a chance to depose up to nine inventors of patents assigned to Illumina as part of a lawsuit over IP related to sequencing-by-synthesis chemistry.

Sweden's public health authority says BGI's COVID-19 test returned thousands of false positive results, according to Reuters.

The US Commerce Department has placed two BGI Group subsidiaries on a list of entities it suspects of human rights violations, allegations the company denies, Reuters reports.

A US District Court will prevent BGI from distributing and promoting certain sequencing instruments that allegedly infringe Illumina patents.

To enable the use of saliva in addition to other types of samples, Sysmex requested a change to a marketing approval it obtained in March.

Bloomberg reports that BGI's SARS-CoV-2 testing sites in the Middle East have raised concerns among US officials.

BGI will establish six so-called Huo-Yan COVID-19 testing labs in Saudi Arabia, based on the emergency lab the firm set up in Wuhan, China in February.
