RT-qPCR Molecular Diagnostics Assist Workers at the Forefront of Ebola Outbreak.

Posted on Thu, Sep 25, 2014 @ 11:30 AM

The largest recorded Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in history continues to devastate the West African region. This epidemic has presented a public health emergency to national and international disease control centers with aid workers tirelessly working to assist affected communities. Ebola is a single-stranded RNA virus that has five known strains, four of which are pathogenic to humans. The current outbreak is a result of the spread of the Zaire ebolavirus (EBOV) strain which previously averaged a 78% mortality rate 1. In a recent update from the World Health Organization, upwards of 2,600 deaths have been reported as result of the viral infection over the last several months 2.

PilotDx Oligos: En Route to IVD

Posted on Thu, Jul 22, 2010 @ 08:07 AM

It can be difficult to transition a product from research to commercialization. It’s simply not feasible to conduct pilot testing in a fully GMP compliant setting because of the significant costs associated with meeting the FDA’s stringent regulations. To ensure consistency throughout the product lifecycle, IVD developers need to plan from the very beginning to choose component manufacturers who can match both the economic realities and changing regulatory requirements as a product matures.
