The BioCode GPP tests for 17 of the most common bacteria, viruses, and parasites that cause infectious diarrhea, and runs on the BioCode MDx-3000 system.

The test, based on the next generation of a spinning disk platform, detects three enterotoxins and DNA from three enteric pathogens. 

Amplidiag CarbaR+MCR detects the main carbapenemase-producing organisms and colistin resistance markers. Novidiag Bacterial GE+ identifies the most common enteric pathogens.

In a wide-ranging discussion, the two leaders touched upon vaccine development, infant mortality, US education, research funding, machine learning, and precision medicine.

The agreement with PerkinElmer's Wallac Oy subsidiary will bring Mobidiag's real-time PCR-based gastrointestinal tests to a new market.

Researchers implemented qPCR on TaqMan Array Cards to find six pathogens are responsible for up to 90 percent of childhood diarrhea at seven sites in Africa and Asia.

The partners will focus on sequencing and analyzing bacteria and viruses that cause a number of diseases as well as those that make up human microbiomes.
