Applied DNA Sciences previously partnered with Stony Brook University Hospital to validate the test, which received Emergency Use Authorization in May.

The company's Linea COVID-19 assay kit is a high-sensitivity real-time, reverse-transcriptase PCR-based assay to detect target sequences of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike gene.

As part of the deal, Applied DNA will permanently place robotic and diagnostic equipment at the hospital to enable validation of the test.

Researchers find that many cancer drugs in development don't work quite how their developers thought they did, as Discover's D-brief blog reports.

LineaRx was formed last year to commercialize Applied DNA Sciences' technologies for DNA design, manufacture, and chemical modification by large scale PCR.

Though the effect of reference bias was inconsistent, the authors of a new study said it highlights the need for tools or approaches to minimize it.

Individuals with northern genetic ancestry were buried with more grave goods than individuals with local southern genetic ancestry, the researchers found.
