An OpenArray panel designed to simultaneously test for 17 viruses and 13 bacteria and protozoa was able to detect pathogens from human blood donor samples with an accuracy of about 95 percent.

The companies will use their respective technologies to develop multiplex molecular diagnostic panels for laboratory testing.

Under the terms of the deal, IQuity's autoimmune disease diagnostics will be made available through Diatherix's CLIA-certified clinical laboratory.

The provider of multiplex diagnostics services and solutions will work with VUMC to develop infectious disease assays with a particular focus on pediatric patients.

Diatherix and Color Genomics now carry both CLIA certification and CAP accreditation.

The acquisition expands the firm's specialty clinical diagnostics footprint.

Enrichment prior to amplification better enables studies of non-coding regions and epigenetic analyses, according to Ubiquity's founder.

The contract is to further the company's work to develop methodologies aimed at Francisella tularensis, Escherichia coli, and Babesia microti.
