Mobidiag

The test, designed to simultaneously detect diarrhea-causing enteric viruses using DNA extracted from a stool sample, includes norovirus GI, norovirus GII, and others. 

PerkinElmer's subsidiary Wallac will now distribute the Amplidiag product line in Israel and in a number of countries in Africa.

The funding was supported by Finnish investment service company Kansalaisrahoitus Oy.

The deal covers Mobidiag's full line of Amplidiag tests for gastrointestinal infections, as well as the high-throughput Amplidiag Easy system.

The firm received the CE IVD mark for Amplidiag Easy, an automated system that enables nucleic acid extraction and PCR setup directly from stool samples.

The agreement with PerkinElmer's Wallac Oy subsidiary will bring Mobidiag's real-time PCR-based gastrointestinal tests to a new market.
