Sekisui/Mesa Biotech Silaris Influenza A&B Test
Sekisui Diagnostics has launched the Silaris Influenza A&B test, a 30-minute PCR-based point-of-care assay developed by Mesa Biotech. The test and testing platform were recently cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration and CLIA-waived under the Mesa branding, the Accula Flu A/Flu B. The test system includes a palm-sized dock and disposable test cassettes. Last year Sekisui Diagnostics inked an exclusive contract with Mesa to distribute the system in the US and Canada.
