NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Hologic said today that it has received two CE marks for its Aptima HIV-1 Quant Dx Assay for use in testing dried blood spots and the early diagnosis of the disease in infants.

Hologic said that as a result of receiving the CE marks, the assay can be used in European and African countries to qualitatively detect HIV type 1 (HIV-1) RNA in infants that are less than 18 months old. Clinicians in those countries can also use the assay in testing dried blood spots to monitor viral load and disease progression in HIV-1 infected patients.
