To market its analyte specific reagents, syndromic enteric panels, and other tests, the firm is building a US-based sales organization.

The firm said its panel, which runs on its MDx-3000 system, tests nasopharyngeal swabs for the most common viruses and bacteria.

By participating in the project, the company, located in Tokyo, hopes to improve its cloud-based data management services while winning over new customers.

The firm said that its newly CE-marked test for intestinal infections is suitable for use in laboratories and hospitals, and provides results in 90 minutes.

The FDA-cleared panel includes tests for salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli, Shigella, Campylobacter, and Cryptosporidium.

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

Applied BioCode said that it now has access to higher volume laboratories that use the Roche MagNa Pure 96 System for sample extraction.

Common non-coding variants, along with rarer coding alterations, appear to contribute to a developmental disease with bowel and other gastrointestinal symptoms.

A GWAS meta-analysis involving hundreds of thousands of cases and controls led to new and known gallstone disease-associated variants at 28 loci.

Researchers reached clinical diagnoses in 35 percent of cases undergoing evaluation over 20 months, sometimes leading to treatment changes.
