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.
The firm said that it anticipates using the funds to scale operations in the US and to continue rolling out its service in the UK.
The firm has initiated measures to sharpen its focus on the business success of its Atellica Solution, which consists of immunoassay and chemistry analyzers.
Siemens Healthineers CEO Bernd Montag talked about the positive impact the firm's Attelica system is having on its revenues, while Bruker discussed plans for the BioTyper platform and assays in the pipeline.
Excluding IPOs, the funding environment for private venture-backed financing Dx deals in the US and Europe was remarkably similar in 2018 to 2017, according to Silicon Valley Bank.
While the first task of the centers will be to digitize their workflows to improve efficiency, they also aim to eventually develop new AI-based analytical tools for diagnosing patients.
Used with other clinical evidence, Siemen Healthineer's blood-based test aids clinicians in assessing the fibrosis stage of chronic liver disease.
The new factory will be the company’s first in vitro diagnostic reagent plant in the Asia Pacific region, producing clinical chemistry and immunoassay reagents.
