A handful of recently published trials suggest that use of the pneumonia panel could lead to more targeted therapy delivered more quickly than standard methods.

The institute will use Curetis' Unyvero Hospitalized Pneumonia panel on high-risk patients admitted to the ICU for COVID-19 pneumonia.

The assay will be available on the Vitros 3600 Immunodiagnostic System, Vitros 5600 and Vitros XT 7600 Integrated Systems, and Vitros ECi/ECiQ Systems. 

The LRT BAL panel detects a wide spectrum of clinically relevant causative agents, such as atypical pathogens and antibiotic resistance markers.

The study reflects the importance of including multiple biomarkers for diagnostic and treatment decisions associated with pneumonia, IVD industry experts said.

Within the "Big Three" conditions, misdiagnoses related to stroke, sepsis, and lung cancer accounted for the most high-severity diagnostic error cases.

 

For 2019, the firm's total revenues from commercial operations, licensing, and collaborations are expected to grow to more than €3 million.

The BioFire FilmArray Pneumonia panel will be used to optimize clinical trial enrollment for an antibiotic to treat combat carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii infections.

The submission by Curetis' distribution partner Beijing Clear Biotech used data previously collected for regulatory approvals in the US and Europe.

The new regulatory approvals add to previous approvals in Singapore, expanding the firm's reach in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations region.
