The firm said the product is the first HIV viral load assay with a dual claim for diagnosis and treatment monitoring.

MOgene, a genomics services provider, launched a new subsidiary this week called MOgene Clinical Diagnostics (MOgeneDx) to provide next-generation sequencing-based testing for infectious diseases and immune disorders.

Two new studies demonstrate improved methods using droplet digital PCR to detect very low viral loads in HIV-positive patients, pushing the detection threshold lower than that of real-time PCR.

Researchers tested three methods - a bandage, an elastic sweatband, and a strip of cotton fabric - for securing tubes (whose position is noted with arrows) in the axilla.

Isothermal molecular method incubated in the armpit allows researchers to detect HIV-1 DNA in proof-of-concept study.

BioMérieux's BioFire Diagnostics subsidary and Cepheid sponsored presentations at the American Association for Molecular Pathology annual meeting in which clinical users shared preliminary data on highly anticipated products from the companies.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A team from Japan and the US used a combination of whole-genome sequencing, exome sequencing, and "oncovirome" sequencing to scrutinize matched tumor and normal samples from more than 500 individuals from different populations who had a form of liver cancer called hepatocel

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Investigators at the Scripps Research Institute, the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, and the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital have come up with a set of next-generation sequencing techniques for profiling antibody repertoires of immune B cells — coll
