Novodiag™ and Amplidiag™ Easy platforms to serve both low- and high-throughput customer needs with emphasis on accessibility and affordability
Espoo, Finland – April 22, 2015 – Mobidiag Ltd, a Finnish molecular diagnostics company specializing in the development of innovative diagnostics solutions for infectious diseases, today announced the first public presentation of two new diagnostic platforms – Novodiag and Amplidiag Easy – at ECCMID 2015 in Copenhagen on April 25-28.
The entirely new Novodiag platform is a fully integrated and automated system, enabling accessible and affordable molecular testing. The platform enables fast, very easy to use and highly multiplexed on-demand molecular testing for any throughput needs. It combines advanced features, ease of use, and affordability unmatched by currently available products, and requires no dedicated molecular testing expertise. The Novodiag platform will be readied for a full commercial launch in mid-2016 to serve various testing needs in the infectious diseases space, as well as in other potential markets which are unserved by current molecular platforms.
Test offers high sensitivity and specificity for pathogenic C. difficile and highly accurate differentiation of the hypervirulence-associated 027 ribotype
Espoo, Finland – April 8, 2015 – Mobidiag Ltd, a Finnish molecular diagnostics company specialized in the development of innovative diagnostics solutions for infectious diseases, today announced the launch of Amplidiag™ C. difficile+027, a qualitative qPCR-based test performed from DNA extracted from stool in suspected cases of C. difficile infection (CDI). The test is now CE-IVD marked and immediately available throughout Europe. The test is both economical and well suited for high-volume screening purposes. It offers both accurate detection of pathogenic C. difficile by detection of tcdB (toxin B) gene, and highly accurate differentiation of the hypervirulence-associated 027 ribotype, in a single reaction.
Test optimizes screening of gastroenteritis-causing bacteria directly from stool samples
Espoo, Finland – Sept. 23, 2014 – Mobidiag Ltd, a Finnish molecular diagnostics company specialized in the development of innovative diagnostics solutions for infectious diseases, today announced the European launch of Amplidiag™ Bacterial GE, marketed as a CE-IVD product under the Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro diagnostic medical devices. CE marking follows the successful completion of a two-center performance evaluation study. The test optimizes stool sample screening processes by utilizing well-established qPCR technology for rapid qualitative detection of eight gastroenteritis-causing bacteria. In contrast to current routine practices, the test does not require pre-culturing of the sample, bringing both laboratory process benefits by substantially reduced need for cultures, as well as clinical benefits by providing early, clinically relevant information. The test’s rapid and comprehensive results enable timely, evidence-based patient management decisions, contributing to improved healthcare processes.
