PCR

Recently validated on pseudomonas and TB samples, the business card-sized device also enables on-chip extraction. 

The test analyzes the mitochondrial genome to determine which men with clinical suspicion of prostate cancer are likely to have high-grade disease.

The study compared five methods, including three based on Roche test kits and reagents, and suggested that a multiplexed test may be best to avoid false-negative results.

The tests are twice as fast as the firm's Xpert line and run on Cepheid's flagship GeneXpert system.

The preliminary revenue results come ahead of the company's planned merger with Takara Bio USA Holdings.
