Immunetics MycoDx

Immunetics has launched the MycoDx assay, a multiplex molecular assay that can identify 21 fungal pathogens in a whole blood sample, including Candida, Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, Coccidioides, Fusarium and other species. Other fungal targets are also in development.

The new test — which Immunetics will offer through its US clinical reference laboratory service — does not require a culturing step, reducing assay turnaround time to about eight hours. The company said its development team is also working to transfer the assay into a user friendly microarray format for worldwide distribution.
