The comprehensive human vaginal gene catalog includes 950,000 non-redundant genes, and is functionally and taxonomically annotated.

The San Francisco-based microbial genomics firm will sell off its product lines, testing labs, IP, and data within the next three months.

The Aptima BV test detects bacterial vaginosis and the Aptima CV/TV detects and differentiates candida infections from trichomonas.

The test is performed on the company's AmpiProbe platform, and the approval expands Enzo's offering of infectious disease tests in New York.

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 real-time PCR test was developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific and validated by Aeon, and detects 34 different pathogens from vaginal swabs. 

The new women's health and STI tests for the BD Max platform are part of a small, focused panel approach which the firm believes will resonate with physicians and labs.

The PCR-based panel tests for the pathogens that cause three types of gynecological infection: bacterial vaginosis, candidiasis, and trichomoniasis.

The method detected differences in the vaginal microbiome that matched up with patients' clinical diagnoses of vaginosis, and also their response to antibiotic treatment.

IMDx gets CE Mark for C. difficile assay on Abbott m2000; Medical Diagnostic Labs launches qPCR panel for bacterial vaginosis; Seegene introduces Anyplex plus MTB/NTM/DR-TB.
