PCR/ESI-MS

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — A recent case study has shown the utility of combined PCR/electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (PCR/ESI-MS) for detecting a rare pathogen in a case of meningitis.

A Mayo Clinic research group that previously evaluated Abbott's PCR-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry platform to broadly identify fungal infections has now published research demonstrating the system's ability to identify Mycobacterium species and M.

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic have demonstrated that Abbott's Plex-ID broad fungal assay is as good or in some cases better than culture-based methods for identifying fungal infections to the species level directly from respiratory specimens without prior knowledge of the offending orga

Scientists from Abbott and collaborating academic institutions have recently published a pair of studies demonstrating the ability of Abbott's Plex-ID platform to detect and identify in human samples a wide array of clinically relevant infectious organisms not picked up using mor

Consulting company McKinsey says diagnostics companies will have to combine genomic data analysis, electronic medical records, effective reimbursement strategies, and regulatory compliance in order to win.

A new report has found that researchers in Africa are still heavily dependent on funding from organizations in the US, Europe, and China, Nature News says.

An article in The Atlantic argues that the progress being made in science isn't keeping pace with the money and time being spent on research.
