The nucleic acid test
agents are quite sensitive and can detect the DNA and RNA of various viruses through blood screening.
The agreement between the companies expands on an earlier collaboration to create a new form of nucleic acid tests
Gen-Probe is a global leader in the development, manufacture and marketing of rapid, accurate and cost-effective nucleic acid tests
(NATs) that are used primarily to diagnose human diseases and screen donated human blood.
In October 2002, after several cases of WNV transmission were linked to blood transfusions, the FDA asked manufacturers of blood screening technologies to create a nucleic acid test
(NAT) that could effectively screen donated blood for WNV.
47 million in supplemental contract funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue development of its nucleic acid test
(NAT) for the detection of West Nile virus (WNV) in donated blood and organs.
have developed a combination human immunodeficiency virus/hepatitis C virus nucleic acid test
that is currently used to screen more than 70% of United States blood donations under an investigational new drug application.
The study was conducted in five clinics in Maputo, Mozambique, with the prototype of Alere's new POC nucleic acid test
, the Alere(TM) q HIV-1/2 Detect assay.
Schumacher, Founder, CEO, and chairman of Boston Biomedica said: "Molecular diagnostics is one of the fastest growing sectors of laboratory medicine today, and reflects the rapid application of nucleic acid test
methods to research, pharmaceuticals and genetics.
The FilmArray Respiratory Panel (RP) is a multiplexed nucleic acid test
designed for the simultaneous detection of 15 respiratory viruses in 1 hour.
Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) announced today that the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved an additional intended use for its licensed nucleic acid test
, to screen source plasma in pools comprised of up to 96 individual donations.
HandyLab is excited to pair our novel Jaguar automated nucleic acid test
system with Nanogen's proven MGB chemistry technology," said Jeff Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of HandyLab.
The grant, from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will help Micronics determine whether its rapid nucleic acid test
to diagnose HIV is comparable in both sensitivity and specificity to the only FDA licensed diagnostic nucleic acid test
in use today.
