Siemens Healthineers received clearances for an assay used to detect and monitor acute pancreatitis, and for tests and controls used to detect Zika.

With the firm seeing lower profitability in diagnostics, its CEO said it is focusing on improving earnings strength with the Atellica Solution IVD platform.

According to the company, it has shipped more than 1,700 of the IVD analyzer platforms since launching sales globally in 2017.

Siemens Healthineers received clearance for its Dimension Exl High-Sensitivity Troponin I Assay used to diagnose acute myocardial infarction.

A Roche executive said he expects essentially all the firm's US troponin customers will convert to the high-sensitivity assay over the next two to three years.

Its CEO Bernd Montag said that measures taken to ensure a successful market launch of the Atellica Solution showed an impact in the second quarter.

Beckman Coulter got regulatory clearance for three in vitro diagnostic products, including its DxH 520 hematology analyzer for low-volume clinical labs.

The firm has expansive plans, including a possible launch of 40 different types of tests. It currently plans to launch a liver function test in the US this summer.

The British molecular diagnostics firm recently completely a redesign of its point-of-care system, called Q-POC, and is planning to seek a CE-IVD mark for the device later this year.
