hepatitis B

The assays are for diagnosing hepatitis B infection in individuals with acute or chronic hepatitis B, or who are recovering from hepatitis B infection.

Medcis Pathlabs and its associates and attendees will buy Co-Diagnostics' tests for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, and human papillomavirus.

The test adds to the firm's current portfolio of 30 infectious disease and oncology tests that use its Sentosa PCR and NGS workflow.

One of the applications seeks premarket approval to run the Vitros immunodiagnostic HIV combo assay on the Vitros 3600 system.

The test could be useful to up to 2.2 million patients with chronic HBV to determine whether treatment is working and whether it can be stopped.
