Genetic Signatures EasyScreen STI/Genital Pathogen Detection Kit

Genetic Signatures has launched the EasyScreen STI Kit to simultaneously detect the 12 most commonly encountered sexually transmitted infections. The kit runs on standard lab equipment and the firm's proprietary 3base method, which reduces genetic information complexity and delivers accurate results in hours. The kit will initially be available for research use only until regulatory approvals are gained in Australia and the EU, and the 12 targets detected by the kit will also be available as analyte specific reagents in the US.
