Hologic Panther Fusion Open Access Functionality

Hologic has introduced an Open Access functionality that will allow CLIA-certified laboratories to develop laboratory developed tests to run on its fully automated Panther Fusion platform. Labs will be able to run their LDTs simultaneously with commercially available IVD assays, and results will release automatically to laboratory information systems.

The Open Access functionality is enabled by the new myAccess software, which is designed to help laboratories create protocols, analyze data, set thresholds, and interpret results, Hologic said.
