Myconostica said this week that its MycAssay Aspergillus test has received the CE mark for detecting Aspergillus spp. DNA in serum.
MycAssay Aspergillus is a molecular diagnostic assay designed to be used by laboratory professionals, and the results of the test aid physicians in diagnosing patients suspected of having an infection caused by Aspergillus, according to Manchester, UK-based Myconostica.
MycAssay Aspergillus previously received the CE mark for respiratory samples, meaning that the test is now CE marked for all major sample types. There are a number of high-risk patient groups for whom it is difficult to obtain respiratory samples, Myconostica said.
