The South Korean company has now received CE marking for its hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV-1 detection kits, which run on its ExiStation system.

The clearance covers tests made by the firm's joint venture for manufacturing, CoSara Diagnostics, in its facility in Ranoli, India.

The company said that the decline in revenues reflected lower industry-wide reimbursement rates under PAMA.

The SuperExtract 32 with the SuperExtract Viral Mag NA Purification kit provides high-quality purification of hepatitis and HIV viral nucleic acid.

The tests run on the firm's sample-to-result automated molecular diagnostics instruments designed for use by high-volume labs.

The firm said its new molecular platform, which offers random-access testing, high throughput, and a broad menu has the potential to replace multiple instruments in molecular labs.

The test measures hepatitis B viral DNA and is intended to be used to assess prognosis and response to antiviral therapies.

The assay is designed to quantitate HBV DNA in serum or plasma to assist in the treatment of chronic HBV-infected patients receiving antiviral therapy.

The new assay simultaneously detects four viral targets in donated blood plasma in a single sample and can add value to the biologics development space.
