CHICAGO (GenomeWeb) — Abbott continues to grow its molecular product line, previewing the next generation of its pathogen identification platform at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry annual meeting here this week.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — A recent case study has shown the utility of combined PCR/electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (PCR/ESI-MS) for detecting a rare pathogen in a case of meningitis.

Lawrence Livermore National Security and The University of California have been awarded US Patent No.

A Mayo Clinic research group that previously evaluated Abbott's PCR-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry platform to broadly identify fungal infections has now published research demonstrating the system's ability to identify Mycobacterium species and M.

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic have demonstrated that Abbott's Plex-ID broad fungal assay is as good or in some cases better than culture-based methods for identifying fungal infections to the species level directly from respiratory specimens without prior knowledge of the offending orga
