nucleic acid extraction

Teleflex will use Arcis' nucleic acid sample preparation chemistry to develop a rapid diagnostic assay based on RNA detection.

LGC said that the acquisition will increase its presence in the nucleic acid market, in addition to its previous acquisitions in the last few years.

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.

LGC will distribute Holliston, Mass.-based AutoGen's FlexStar, Arrow, and QuickGene platforms in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – LGC Genomics and Covaris announced late on Wednesday a partnership to develop solutions for the high-throughput extraction of nucleic acids from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples.

A former scientist from Texas-based R&D firm Lynntech who was developing a nucleic acid sample prep module intended for use with molecular diagnostic assays for resource-poor areas of the world has left the company and founded his own startup to commercialize an improved vers
