The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based firm will compete with a few well-established players offering systems that can run in vitro diagnostic tests as well as lab-developed tests. 

The award will go toward development of Talis Bio's SlipChip POC technology for pathogen identification and antibiotic-susceptibility testing.

The company unveiled forthcoming products for high-throughput molecular testing, diagnostic lab informatics, and microbiology automation.

The test has been validated for use with the same full set of female urogenital specimens that are used with Cobas NT/NG testing, as well as for use with male urine.

While molecular testing is now routine in cancer and women's health, for other disease areas, the technology may be overkill, Sundin said. 

The firm recently won an NIH grant to develop its instrument-free gonorrhea test, and is also developing a chlamydia assay with the long-term goal of making a combined CT/NG test.

The test runs on the firm's high throughput platforms and has claims for extragenital samples in addition to traditional samples.
