isothermal amplification

The Finnish firm provided updates on its isothermal amplification-based molecular diagnostics technology as well as its broader diagnostics business.

A new assay uses digital loop-mediated isothermal amplification (dLAMP) to perform phenotypic antibacterial susceptibility testing in 30 minutes.

The test leverages loop mediated isothermal amplification technology and enables the rapid detection of Neisseria meningitidis directly from cerebrospinal fluid samples.

Dubbed "Sherlock," the new technology has demonstrated potential in detecting viruses and bacteria as well as human SNPs and mutations in cell-free DNA.

Facing CMS sanctions, lab industry insiders ponder the firm's options in seeking to launch a Zika virus assay with emergency use authorization on its upcoming miniLab platform.

Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes speaks at the AACC 2016 meeting

At the American Association for Clinical Chemistry meeting, Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes said her company is working on third-party review and publications of the firm's technologies and tests.

Researchers led by MIT's Jim Collins have built upon their paper-based Ebola test and are hoping to find a partner to help scale production and manufacturing of the test.

The company plans to add assays for Group B Streptococcus, Clostridium difficile, and norovirus in 2016 to complement its existing meningitis test.

The test is the first in the Dublin, Ireland-based firm's pipeline of infectious disease assays that use loop-mediated isothermal amplification.

Lumora's MDx technology for the clinical and industrial sectors will be merged with ERBA Mannheim's IVD testing business in a wide range of market segments.
