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

Credo Diagnostics recently received the CE mark for the coronavirus test, which can provide results in 20 minutes.

Life Sciences revenues grew 7 percent year over year to $1.92 billion, while Diagnostics revenues were up rose also 7 percent to $1.80 billion.

The UK firm has purchased the assets for Enigma Diagnostics and anticipates it will soon receive clearance to market its first test for TB in China.

The test is the latest in a series of CE-IVD-marked assays the company has launched for use on Becton Dickinson's PCR-based BD Max platform.

Danaher's life sciences revenues grew 6 percent, while its diagnostics revenues rose nearly 5 percent, including an increase of more than 20 percent at Cepheid.

The test combines the superior performance of laboratory-based PCR tests and the simplicity and convenience of traditional POC rapid immunoassays, the firm said.

This test is the firm's second assay on the point-of-care Accula molecular diagnostics system. 

The test, which uses automated reverse-transcription real-time PCR, expands the firm's menu of CLIA-waived tests for use in near-patient and point-of-care settings.
