The method uses chitosan-coated magnetic beads and bead-based lysis to reduce the number of sample prep steps.
The companies have been working together since early 2015 on a diagnostic for the early detection of Lyme disease.
The firm has launched genotyping assays that rely on PCR followed by high-resolution melt analysis, as well as master mix companion chemistry.
The investment will fund the research and development of new diagnostic testing products, including rapid genetic testing.
Among Canon BioMedical's life science projects is a genetic testing platform based on ultra-fast serial PCR and high-resolution melt analysis.
The partners will work together to build a rapid diagnostic test panel for Lyme Disease using T2's magnetic resonance detection technology.
