The New Orleans firm launched two products last week for DNA quantification and typing of forensics samples. 

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 firm's technology, called genotyping by random amplicon sequencing, or GRAS, should improve the efficiency of identifying and selecting markers for crop improvement.

The funding supports development of biochemistry and microfluidics for digital droplet multiple displacement amplification.

The deal is the latest in a series of such arrangements Mobidiag has inked for its Amplidiag diagnostic product line in recent months.
