gastrointestinal disease

Genes and pathways related to mesenchymal biology, connective tissue, and conditions like obesity came to the forefront when researchers analyzed the new susceptibility loci.

The company's life sciences segment had $1.08 billion in revenues, driven by strong performance of the preanalytical systems, diagnostic systems, and biosciences units.

Qiagen believes the flexibility of the Stat-Dx platform for an evolving reimbursement landscape will set it apart from other similar commercial platforms.

The Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel is the first of a number of planned infectious disease syndromic panels on the firm's PCR-based system. 

The deal covers all Amplidiag tests and the Amplidiag Easyinstrument, and represents Mobidiag's entry into the Baltic region, a company executive said. 

The company said it will use the proceeds to accelerate development of its gastrointestinal platform, including diagnostics and therapeutics for the GI tract.

An exome sequencing analysis of individuals from eight families led to homozygous loss-of-function mutations in CD55 and ties to complement system activity.

Applied Biocode intends to have panel for identifying 18 gastrointestinal pathogens on the clinical market by the end of the year.

The firm received the CE IVD mark for Amplidiag Easy, an automated system that enables nucleic acid extraction and PCR setup directly from stool samples.

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