Researchers analyzed the performance of a dozen SARS-CoV-2 serology assays on samples from COVID-19 patients, patients with other disease, and pre-pandemic samples.

UCSF's test, developed with Mammoth Biosciences, uses CRISPR technology, while the tests from the Broad Institute and BioSewoom are PCR-based.

The researchers said their assay can be run in 30 to 45 minutes, with 95 percent positive predictive agreement and 100 percent negative predictive agreement.

The San Francisco-based startup believes that its QiSant assay could help guide the use of immunosuppressive drugs and other therapies to prevent kidney transplant rejection.

The partners' "COVID-19 task force" will invest in ePlex molecular testing platforms from GenMark Diagnostics to quadruple UCSF's testing capacity.

Proscia said that the collaboration will focus initially on prostate cancer and then expand to several cancer subspecialties.

The seven-year grant renews funding for the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group, led by Duke University and UCSF, with $15 million in 2020.

A JAMA study found that low-value diagnostic tests are common in inpatient settings, and machine learning systems can be used to identify those tests and reduce their overutilization.

A recent study from UCSF suggests Abbott's blood-based i-Stat Alinity device may be able to identify TBI that isn't found by a CT scan.

OncoCyte provided additional details about the history of the Razor test, its timeline for making it commercially available, and plans for a follow-on study.
