Applied BioCode Obtains FDA Clearance of the Roche MagNA Pure 96 Extraction System for its Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel

IN.PACT AV Drug-Coated Balloon Is First and Only to Show Superior and Sustained Results Through Two Years Compared to PTA in Treating Arteriovenous Fistulae Lesions

The data, which were presented virtually as a podium first at the 2021 Charing Cross Symposium, demonstrated that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the first and only DCB to show sustained and superior effectiveness through two years compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with de novo or non-stented restenotic native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) in the upper extremity.

Martell Diagnostic Laboratories Announces HERTEST: Groundbreaking Way to Detect Effectiveness of Breast Cancer RX Globally

HERTEST is a blood test that looks for a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2), which is shed into the blood stream of patients with growing breast cancer tumors.

ESPRIT CAM Improves Productivity for Long Part Machining by Automating Multi-spindle Program Creation

ESPRIT CAM: New computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) technology has been introduced by ESPRIT CAM, part of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division that provides manufacturers with the control and flexibility needed to use multi-spindle and multi-channel computer-numerical-control (CNC) machinery for the machining of long parts.

Applied BioCode announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for the use of the Roche MagNA Pure 96* Extraction System with the high throughput BioCode® MDx-3000 and Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (GPP).

The BioCode® Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel and BioCode® MDx-3000 System recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance, using the bioMerieux NUCLISENS® easyMAG® extraction system. Now, with the addition of the MagNA Pure 96 System, Applied BioCode will have access to higher volume laboratories that utilize the Roche system for sample extraction. The MagNA Pure 96 System can extract DNA/RNA from up to 96 patient samples in approximately 60 minutes. The combination of the BioCode® MDx-3000 system and the Roche MagNA Pure 96 System will allow laboratories to easily process up to 188 patient samples in a single, 8-hour shift.

The comprehensive BioCode® Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel provides results for the 17 most common bacteria, viruses, and parasites that cause infectious diarrhea. The panel includes targets for bacteria: Campylobacter (C. jejuni and C. coli), Clostridium difficile toxin A&B, Salmonella spp., Shigella/Enteroinvasive E. coli, Shiga-like toxin producing E.coli, E. coli O157, Enterotoxigenic E.coli, Enteroaggregative E. coli, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Vibrio spp. (including Vibrio vulnificus and Vibrio cholerae), Yersinia enterocolitica, viruses: norovirus group I/II, adenovirus 40/41, rotavirus A, and parasites: Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium (C. hominis and C. parvum), Entamoeba histolytica.

The BioCode® MDx-3000 system offers the high volume laboratory an alternative to high cost, single use, cartridge-based molecular test systems. This user-friendly automated system also offers target masking capabilities within panels to address variation in test ordering patterns and potential changes in panel reimbursement. The BioCode® MDx-3000 system has the capability to process up to 3 different multiplex panels on the same run. It also offers a User Defined Mode where laboratories can develop their own multiplex assays to run on the system.

The BioCode® Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel was the first of many syndromic infectious disease panels developed for the BioCode® MDx-3000 System. Applied BioCode also has a 20-plex Respiratory Pathogen Panel** completing Clinical Trials for the US market.

* The MagNA Pure 96 System is a product of F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd.
** In clinical trial, has not been cleared by the FDA.
