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.

The firm's EpiSwitch test for blood-based diagnosis of prostate cancer will be evaluated as part of the ongoing PROSTAGRAM trial.

The researchers also determined that the two most widely used IGRAs used for diagnosing the disease in developed countries are not accurate for active TB.

The UK developers believe that their device has the potential for multiplex testing at the point of care using solid-state nanopore sensing with DNA probes.

The initiative includes academic and private sector partners and aims to train new researchers in the early diagnosis of brain cancer.
