vancomycin-resistant enterococci

Sequencing analysis of the Enterococcus faecium isolates found that they belonged to two clades, one of which harbored numerous resistance genes.

Collaborators said that the test is accurate and reliable for the rapid detection of the most common gram-positive bacteria responsible for bloodstream infections.

The company plans to launch a test for gram-negative bacteria next, and will work with developers and freelancers to develop additional assay content

Based on iCubate's Amplicon-Rescued Multiplex PCR technology, the iC-GPC assay is the first of the company's portfolio's to earn CE mark.

The iC-System is based on on iCubate's amplicon-rescued multiplex PCR technology, which detects multiple pathogens simultaneously.

The financing will go toward efforts by the German firm to bring its point-of-care screening system for drug-resistant bacteria to hospitals. 

Researchers described a vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus infection transmitted from a liver donor to recipient, ruling out hospital-acquired infection with genomics.

A retrospective analysis of Enterococcus faecium isolates from a UK hospital provided clues to infection sources and antibiotic resistance patterns.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — IMDx said today that its IMDx VanR assay for the Abbott m2000 platform has received regulatory clearance from Health Canada and Singapore's Health Sciences Authority, allowing the test to be sold and distributed in those countries.

As one of its major molecular diagnostics-related revenue sources begins to slow down, Qiagen today outlined its plan to replace it with several new MDx initiatives and other molecular biology-related growth drivers.
