The sequencing-based panel runs on the firm's Sentosa workflow and detects genomic mutations in the HIV virus.

In a wide-ranging discussion, the two leaders touched upon vaccine development, infant mortality, US education, research funding, machine learning, and precision medicine.

The Ultra's combination of a lower limit of detection and ability to find dead bacilli after starting TB therapy vastly improves sensitivity compared to other tests, the study’s authors said.

Medcis Pathlabs and its associates and attendees will buy Co-Diagnostics' tests for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, and human papillomavirus.

The assays should be easy to perform and capable of detecting HIV from a finger-stick blood or other sample shortly after infection or treatment interruption.

The clinic, a partnership of the Florida Department of Health in Broward County and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation hopes to improve STD treatment and control.

Vela said that the Sentosa SQ HIV genotyping assay delivers clinical results with reduced hands-on and turnaround time compared to competitors.

The CE-marked test enables health professionals to distinguish between HIV-1 and HIV-2, and runs on the fully automated Cobas 6800/8800 systems.

An OpenArray panel designed to simultaneously test for 17 viruses and 13 bacteria and protozoa was able to detect pathogens from human blood donor samples with an accuracy of about 95 percent.
