Singulex's CEO provided an update at the JP Morgan Healthcare conference on the firm's progress in developing its immunodiagnostics platform.

The firm is developing a sepsis and SIRS diagnostic that combines its own molecule counting technology with Thermo Fisher's procalcitonin assay. 

The immunoassay firm plans to first develop cardiovascular IVDs on its Clarity instrument, followed by assays in oncology and infectious disease.

Through their arrangement, Singulex has granted Grifols an exclusive license to its single-molecule counting technology for use in blood donor and plasma screening.

Executives from Luminex, Exact Sciences, T2 Biosystems, and Singulex provided updates on their companies' businesses on the final day of the conference.

The deal gives EMD Millipore control of Singulex's single-molecule counting technology for research applications.

The Biomarker Development Center will use Singulex's Single Molecule Counting technology to quantify ultra-low level biomarkers.

The partners will develop biomarkers for potential use in drug development targeting the disease. 

Singulex has appointed Peter Heseltine as chief medical officer.
