Singapore-MIT Research Alliance Developing Sample Prep, Dx Method for Low-Abundance Microorganisms
Researchers from the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology has adapted a novel electrostatic microfilter to enhance detection of low concentrations of pathogens.
Oxford Nanopore Technologies, BioMérieux to Develop Infectious Disease Diagnostics
Hoping to bring nanopore sequencing to the infectious disease market, the companies will first develop an IVD test for antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis.
Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Bio-Techne Partner to Develop Carrier Screening Assay
The project will leverage Asuragen's long-range PCR and Oxford Nanopore's sequencing capabilities to develop a sequencing workflow for carrier screening.
The method, called DDNS, can identify poliovirus directly without cell culture, reducing the turnaround time for outbreak detection.
BugSeq Bioinformatics Nabs BARDA Grant to Develop NGS-Based Respiratory Test
BugSeq will optimize a test for commercial clinical use by lowering the turnaround time, reducing interference from host RNA, and analytically validating the platform.
