nucleic acid extraction

The firm has partnered with the University of Surrey to validate and potentially commercialize a test that detects mRNA biomarkers from patient urine samples.

The team developed an equipment-free dipstick device using untreated cellulose-based paper to quickly collect and purify genetic material for amplification.

The firm began offering its common shares on Wednesday at $6 per share on the Nasdaq. Gross proceeds from the IPO were $7.1 million. 

The collaboration will leverage DiaSorin's Liaion MDX PCR system, and Tecan's Fluent Laboratory Automation Solution to provide users a complete sample-to-result system.

The firm received the CE IVD mark for Amplidiag Easy, an automated system that enables nucleic acid extraction and PCR setup directly from stool samples.
