Vela Diagnostics Great Basin Platform

Vela Diagnostics has commercialy launched the Great Basin infectious disease diagnostic system in Europe and the US. In preparation for the launch, Vela has relisted the products with the US and Food and Drug Administration and CE-IVD under its name. Initial site placements are evaluating the firm's Stool Bacterial Pathogens Panel. The evaluation will then be followed by Great Basin's five additional assays, including the Staph ID/R Blood Culture panel, Group B Strep Test, Shiga Toxin Direct Test, Bordetella Direct Test, and the Toxigenic C. diff test. All the assays use the Great Basin Analyzer, which is designed to perform automated sample extraction and chip-based detection in a fully enclosed cartridge with integrated data analysis.
