Using the publicly available ImmPort database, researchers standardized and analyzed immune-related data for more than 10,300 healthy individuals.

CEO Anders Rylander said the company will initially market its DiviTum assay for breast cancer cases, though it could be used to monitor cell proliferation in all cancer types.

The company's diagnostics business saw 8 percent growth, while its Covance segment retreated 2 percent. The firm lowered its adjusted EPS estimate for the full year. 

The Merck KGaA subsidiary is launching the research-use only SMCxPRO later this year for protein detection using sandwich ELISAs paired with proprietary optical readout.

Using mass spectrometry, the scientists found protein panels that could separate IBD patient biopsies from controls and UC from CD, respectively.

The group hopes to find biomarkers as a first step toward identifying or developing targeted therapeutics to avoid serious and life threatening outcomes of early lung disease in these newborns.

Using Quanterix's Simoa technology, the group developed assays to detect C. diff toxins with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity.

The grant project is part of the company's ongoing effort to expand into pre-designed research tests for disease biomarkers and point-of-care diagnostics.

The team's dilution experiments suggest Simoa could be thousands of times more sensitive than standard ELISAs in detecting anti-dengue antibodies.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Molecular testing methods such as nucleic acid sequence-based amplification (NASBA) and qPCR, administered either in combination or separately, are superior to routinely used ELISA-based assays for diagnosing invasive aspergillosis, according to a newly published retrospect
