The company's revenue growth was driven by increasing sales of its ePlex molecular diagnostics analyzer, which now has a SARS-CoV-2 test.

The team characterized immune, viral load, and age differences in children with severe responses to respiratory syncytial virus using an integrated analytical strategy.

The firm believes that its molecular assay for the laboratory will help ease some of the supply chain issues hampering test rollout during the pandemic.

The test, developed by the firms in six weeks, is part of a viral respiratory panel and runs on Bosch's point-of-care Vivalytic system.

The panel can detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 and 20 other pathogens known to cause serious respiratory disease from nasopharyngeal swabs in symptomatic patients.

The firm now expects to complete the development work needed to request Emergency Use Authorization for the new panel.

The QiaStat-Dx Respiratory SARS-CoV-2 Panel can detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 and 21 other respiratory pathogens in symptomatic patients.

Though it is unclear whether the virus became pathogenic before or after the jump from animals to humans, genomic features point to a natural source for the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The panel will aid in the diagnosis of patients with respiratory symptoms in about an hour by differentiating SARS-CoV-2 from other bacterial and viral pathogens.

The company said it expects to launch the Verigene II system with respiratory and gastrointestinal assays in the middle of this year.
