Combatting Antimicrobial Resistance – Molecular Diagnostics Holds the Key

Antibiotic resistant bacteria are one of the major threats to the global healthcare system. Some have commented that it is a more immediate threat to us than global warming. A UK independent review estimated that unless effective action is taken, drug-resistant strains of certain bacterial infections will claim 10 million lives each year by 2050. This would be a horrific and tragic loss of life. This unchecked spread of infectious disease was also predicted to result in an economic cost of 100 trillion USD over the next 35 years (1).

Mobidiag receives CE-IVD for Amplidiag® RESP-4 for simultaneous detection of COVID-19, Flu A, Flu B and RSV

  • Real-time PCR-based test enables high-throughput reliable detection of most prevalent respiratory infections, including COVID-19
  • One single test determines the virus responsible for patient symptoms, guiding treatment decisions and rapid isolation strategy if required

FINLAND, Espoo, March 1st, 2021 – Mobidiag Ltd. today announces that it has received CE-IVD marking for its Amplidiag® RESP-4 molecular diagnostic test for the rapid and simultaneous detection of some of the most prevalent respiratory viruses: SARS-CoV-2 (responsible for COVID-19 infection), Influenza A, Influenza B and RSV.

These viruses present similar symptoms, making it difficult for physicians to determine accurately which virus a patient has. The Amplidiag® RESP-4 assay can rapidly and simultaneously determine an accurate diagnosis from one patient sample using nasopharyngeal swabs, helping to guide clinicians to the relevant treatment decision for each patient. The test runs on the Mobidiag Amplidiag® Easy platform, which provides clinicians with an optimized sample screening process, with automated DNA/RNA extraction and PCR plate setup. Based on well-established high-throughput PCR technology, the platform can process 46 samples in approximately three hours.
