NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A study online today in Science hints that the live, attenuated viruses used in some vaccines may be able to recombine in their hosts in rare cases, producing viruses that are once again able to cause infection.

Scientists from the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences and KGI spinout Claremont Biosolutions have been developing point-of-care molecular testing platforms and associated assays for Clostridium difficile, multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis, and herpes simpl

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – BioHelix today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration has given 510(k) clearance for its assay for the detection of herpes simplex virus.

Medical Diagnostic Lab has been awarded US Patent No. 8,030,032, "Methods and compositions related thereto for detecting and identifying distinct species of nucleic acids from causative agents."

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – EraGen Biosciences today announced the US Food and Drug Administration has cleared its MultiCode-RTx HSV 1&2 kit for use on bioMérieux's NucliSens easyMag extraction system.

Akonni will use the grant to develop a closed amplicon RT-PCR microarray for detecting enterovirus, herpes viruses, and West Nile virus in cerebral spinal fluid.

In addition, Argene will provide BioMérieux with a portfolio of molecular tests for diagnosing infectious diseases in transplant and other immunocompromised patients.
