qPCR

Researchers detected distinct antibiotic resistance patterns in untreated urban wastewater samples from northern and southern Europe.

The company is developing dedicated product lines for next-generation sequencing that incorporate a thermal cycler capable of 35-minute PCR.

The company's assay relies on a set of 15 methylation and microRNA markers to determine whether a woman has breast cancer.

The test uses qPCR to measure the methylation level of three bladder cancer-specific biomarkers in patient urine samples.

The German firm said that researchers can now run its GynTect cervical cancer assay on Roche Diagnostics' Cobas z 480 analyzer.

The test, which searches for fragments of DNA 200 basepairs or longer that are characteristic of diseased mucosa, may eventually compete with diagnostics like Exact Sciences' Cologuard.

The qPCR assay measures methylation of six genes and could help doctors identify aggressive vs indolent prostate cancer more accurately than PSA.

Qiagen's test detects the most frequently occurring somatic mutations in EGFR in less than four hours using real-time PCR on the Rotor-Gene Q platform.

By achieving certification for the assay, called PredictSure IBD, the Cambridge, UK-based firm can sell it for clinical use across Europe.

Almac is developing the assay to enroll patients for clinical trials used to develop repotrectinib, an investigational tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
