multiplex real-time PCR

An OpenArray panel designed to simultaneously test for 17 viruses and 13 bacteria and protozoa was able to detect pathogens from human blood donor samples with an accuracy of about 95 percent.

Under the agreement, Genomax Technologies will distribute Streck's cell stabilization and molecular products in Singapore and Malaysia.

The company has aspirations for a combined molecular/immunoassay platform, but plans to go to market with a 22-target real-time PCR-enabled syndromic panel.

An investigation and follow-up analysis concluded that the Trioplex test promoted by the CDC was equally sensitive to an alternative singleplex Zika assay, despite the microbiologist's claims to the contrary.

The company will use the funding to prepare for the 2017 launch of its DiagCore integrated molecular and immunoassay near-patient testing platform.

The assay was developed in the Wadsworth Center Biodefense Laboratory and includes a novel sample prep enabling detection from stool.

The firm expects to receive both FDA clearance and CE-IVD marking for the system and assay by the end of 2015 and has more assays in development.

LOS ANGELES (GenomeWeb News) – Seegene intends to pursue an aggressive partnership strategy to promote adoption of its newly released multiplex real-time PCR technology, officials from the Seoul, Korea-based firm told GenomeWeb Daily News at the American Association of Clinical Chemistry

A team from the National University of Ireland Galway's Molecular Diagnostics Research Group has developed and validated a two-stage multiplex real-time PCR assay to identify all members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex.

The firm launched its SmartChip Real-Time PCR System in August 2010 and exceeded its revenue guidance for the year.
