The firm saw strong increases in international HIV sales of its OraQuick HIV Self-Test product in the quarter.

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

OraSure will purchase Houston-based Diversigen, a microbiome and metagenomics consulting, sequencing, and data analysis service provider.

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 kit, which was launched today, leverages real-time RT-PCR technology to detect and quantify hepatitis C virus-specific RNA with genotypes 1 to 6.

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.
