The reference lab noted unusual melt temperatures in samples processed for Lyme disease, and collaborated with others to find the spirochete in Upper Midwest ticks.

The FilmArray ME Panel received a de novo clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration in October.

Among Canon BioMedical's life science projects is a genetic testing platform based on ultra-fast serial PCR and high-resolution melt analysis.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — High-resolution melt curve analysis is a robust and simple way of querying the genotypes present in heterogeneous samples, since curve shapes and melting temperatures are related to nucleic acid sequence.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have reported that their high-resolution melting assay and a PCR/mass spectrometry approach using Abbot's Plex-ID platform performed similarly in identifying pathogens from a cohort of positive blood culture samples.

Researchers from several institutions have developed a high-resolution melting assay that can provide measurements of HIV diversity that are highly concordant with equivalent sequencing-based measurements at a fraction of the cost.

Idaho Technology said this week that it has initiated a clinical trial to evaluate its FilmArray Blood Culture Identification, or BCID, panel, which is designed to identify more than two dozen sepsis-causing organisms, as well as detect the presence of certain antibiotic resistan

Idaho Technology said this week that it has launched a 21-target FilmArray Respiratory Panel in Europe after recently receiving CE in vitro diagnostic marking in the European Union.
