Isothermal molecular method incubated in the armpit allows researchers to detect HIV-1 DNA in proof-of-concept study.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — In an effort to design primers that might solve the conundrum of the plateau effect in PCR amplification, researchers at Ohio State University and Ilia State University in the country of Georgia have created a method called quadruplex priming amplification.

A majority of these assays use standard RT-PCR, but a few have novel methodologies that may help control the current outbreak in Africa, prevent an outbreak in the US, and possibly advance the field of molecular diagnostics.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Although Alere launched the Alere i molecular diagnostic platform and influenza assay only three months ago, the company announced this week that a three-year contract worth up to $12.9 million from the US Department of Health and Human Services' Biomedical Advanced Researc
