The RT-LAMP-based platform, which the researchers plan to commercialize through a spinout company, could be adapted for other infectious disease tests.

Later this year, the inherited cardiovascular disease clinic also plans to implement a preventive genomics program with polygenic risk score and PGx testing.

The researchers hope that donor-derived cell-free DNA testing to monitor rejection can help relieve racial disparities in heart transplant outcomes.

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 pace of development for CRISPR-based infectious disease assays increased as the pandemic progressed, more funding became available, and collaboration accelerated. 

CareDx first sued Natera in March 2019 for infringing two of its patents, then amended the suit a year later to add a third patent.

The RT-PCR-based test was first authorized earlier this year for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid in specimens collected by a healthcare provider.

The researchers created a test-on-a-chip technology that takes about 35 minutes to produce a result, and may partner with Ford to produce the chips.

Inflammatix said that if its test obtains Emergency Use Authorization next year, clinicians will be able to better gauge the severity of a COVID-19 patient's infection.
