Southern University of Science and Technology's He Jiankui has announced the birth of twin girls who underwent CRISPR-based editing of their CCR5 genes.

The kit is designed to quantify HIV-1 RNA in blood samples and runs on Bioneer's PCR-based ExiStation automated molecular diagnostics system.

Cells that express genes linked to greater proliferation potential are more likely to downregulate the HIV provirus, according to a new study.

Qiagen's partnership and merger agreement with NeuMoDx may help it compete with high-volume molecular testing vendors such as Abbott, Hologic, and Roche.
