Under the contract, DNAe will develop tests for antimicrobial resistant infections and influenza that it submits to the FDA for clearance. 

The test is based on a biomarker signature that consists of a core set of 31 genes associated with endotoxin tolerance in sepsis patients.

The company is also developing a next-generation sequencing product that may be applied at the point of need to test for bloodstream infections and later as a liquid biopsy for cancer.

The London-based firm plans to fund development and clinical trials for its point-of-care diagnostic test for serious blood infections.

DNAe will combine its semiconductor DNA sequencing technology with nanoMR's PCS technology for a complete blood-to-result solution.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – London-based DNA Electronics is developing a point-of-care diagnostic platform that can amplify, genotype via real-time PCR, and do targeted semiconductor sequencing all on one chip.

Cepheid said this week that it has appointed Peter Farrell as executive vice president of international commercial operations.

Qiagen said this week that Detlev Riesner, a Qiagen co-founder, retired earlier this month as chairman of the company's supervisory board after having served as a member of the board since 1996 and as chairman since 2003.

London-based DNA Electronics said that it is building a semiconductor sequencing device that will focus on small gene panels, rather than whole-genome or exome sequencing, for point-of-care applications.
