Emerging technologies included biosensors, host response tests using different types of biomarkers, and new ways to make and develop antigen, antibody, and PCR tests.

The researchers believe that their prototype could be the basis of a portable, point-of-care testing platform that would enable rapid testing anywhere.

Laboratories at University College London, Imperial College London, Queen Mary University of London, and King's College London will all contribute to the effort.

The new method incorporates analysis of the amplification and melt curves and was used to create a single-channel nonaplex test using intercalating dye.

The test is based on 13 genes that form a gene signature in the blood of children with Kawasaki disease, and it enables KD to be distinguished from other diseases.

About 3.4 million people, or 6 percent of the population in England, was likely infected by SARS-CoV-2 by July 13. People of color had higher rates of infection.

The UK Department of Health and Social Care has already ordered 10,000 RNA test cartridges from the company, which expects to obtain a CE-IVD mark for its test within weeks.

Technology partners on the study include BioMérieux and SkylineDx, as well as Imperial College London's biomedical electronics unit.

An international group of researchers aim to develop an approach that may be able to diagnose multiple conditions, including pneumonia, tuberculosis, sepsis, with one blood sample.

CareDx will use NanoString's new Human Organ Transplant panel to develop HistoMap, a gene expression profiling test to identify allograft rejection.
