The research highlighted particular challenges for gram-negative organisms among a population of higher-risk patients.

The test is the second of three panels intended to detect pathogens that cause the bloodstream infections that can lead to sepsis.

The firm had also applied for marketing clearance for its gram negative and fungal pathogen panels in October.

With a DNA methylation atlas and deconvolution algorithm, researchers are attempting to trace cfDNA back to tissue sources in healthy or ill individuals.

The UK developers believe that their device has the potential for multiplex testing at the point of care using solid-state nanopore sensing with DNA probes.

The award comes after DNAe completed the first phase of a contract valued at up to $51.9 million, which BARDA initiated in September 2016.

Columbia University researchers have adapted a capture-based targeted sequencing method for viral genomes to detect bacteria in clinical samples. 

The Stanford spinout has launched an infectious disease test that sequences cell-free pathogen DNA to diagnose sepsis in immunocompromised patients.

The firm has completed submissions for all three of its ePlex panels for diagnosis and management of bloodstream infections that can lead to sepsis.

Clinicians identifying and treating S. aureus bloodstream infections reduced the median length of stay by 5.6 days and hospital cost by $13,341 per patient after using Luminex's assay.
