PathogenDx has developed a technology that detects pathogen DNA found on surfaces with applications in agriculture and clinical lab testing.

FASMAC provides food analysis and biotech products and services, including DNA/RNA synthesis, DNA sequencing, food testing, and genetic analysis reagents.

The launch of the company's Prism system earlier this month should support the development of an accompanying menu of tests to serve diverse users.

The first version of the platform, which the company submitted for Emergency Use Authorization to the US FDA last week, analyzes RNA extracted from a swab.

The company also said that it has acquired Beijing-based food safety testing firm Meizheng Group. The deal is expected to expand PerkinElmer's food safety capabilities.

UgenTec's FastFinder software platform uses artificial intelligence to enable analysis and interpretation of qPCR data, workflow automation, and genotyping.

Integrated DNA Technologies said it will act as the primary supplier of next-generation sequencing oligo products for Clear Lab's NGS-based Clear Safety platform.

Clear Labs will implement Oxford Nanopore's GridIon nanopore sequencing instrument with its Clear Safety platform to detect food-borne pathogens.

The firm claims that its Clear Safety platform will help food safety professionals detect food-borne pathogens and prevent outbreaks across the US.

The agriculture company said it will use the technology it has licensed for new applications in crop editing and for research to bring new foods to market.
