nucleic acid amplification

The molecular assay detects and differentiates Trichomonas vaginalis and/or Mycoplasma genitalium in clinical urine samples.

The firm's whole-genome amplification chemistry may help researchers better understand cancer heterogeneity, even between cells.

The reagent is used for the detection of cytokeratin 19 mRNA in surgically removed sentinel lymph nodes in order to diagnose lymph node metastasis.

The Durham, North Carolina-based startup will use the funds to develop a library preparation kit for single-cell sequencing.

The new firm will offer target enrichment assays for clinical NGS testing and develop library preparation kits for clinical tests on Illumina's sequencing platform.

The St. Louis-based firm will use the funds to develop its colorectal cancer screening test, which measures eukaryotic RNA isolated from epithelial cells in stool.

The latest NYS Department of Health approval expands the company's CT/NG testing to samples from multiple relevant body sites.

The firm's technology can perform in-droplet centrifugation, 10-second cell lysis, and sound wave-based PCR on the surface of an inexpensive polymer chip.

The startup, which was founded by two Washington University researchers and a Wharton MBA, is looking to take a big bite out of Cologuard's market.

The assay's CE marking permits its use for the early diagnosis of HIV-1 in infants and for measuring viral load and disease progression using dried blood spot samples.
