Promega

Promega would first seek clearance for an assay that detects dMMR in colorectal cancer patients, and could seek a far broader clearance in the long term.

The test, which is currently for research use only, uses fluorescent multiplex PCR to co-amplify seven markers for analysis of the MSI-high phenotype.

The firm's target market for the instruments will include existing customers in the forensics and food testing spaces.

The Thermo Fisher subsidiary is not liable to Promega in the US for selling infringing forensic DNA kits in Europe, containing US-manufactured Taq polymerase.

The case is being framed as either upholding a strong patent regime or dealing a blow to US-based manufacturing as part of the global supply chain.

Genovis had sued Promega for allegedly infringing a patent related to technology for characterizing therapeutic antibody candidates using LC-MS.

MetaSUB researchers will sample high-traffic areas across subway systems, buses, and parks in cities such as New York, San, Francisco, Buenos Aires, Sydney, and London.
