Genetic Signatures Featured in Latest GenomeWeb Article

By | ASX Announcements, Latest News | No Comments

GenomeWeb, the largest online newsroom focused on advanced molecular research tools, has featured Genetic Signatures and 3base™ technology, in an article about the company’s continued global market rollout of their existing and new suite of products. The new 3base™ multiplex PCR tests include an assay for detecting sexually transmitted infections and another that tests for all flaviviruses and alphaviruses. These assays complement Genetic Signatures’ tests already available which include assays for enteric and respiratory infections.  The GenomeWeb article highlighted Genetic Signatures’ recent clinical trial of their new EasyScreenTM Flavivirus/Alphavirus Detection kit, which was presented at the infectious diseases conference, ECCMID, in April 2017 (Vienna, Austria).  The article also discussed the ongoing global expansion strategy including the progress of regulatory approval in Australia and a CE-IVD marking of a number of products in the coming months.

Genetic Signatures’ CSO presenting on the development of 3base™ Flavivirus/Alphavirus assay at ECCMID 2017 Vienna, Austria

By | Latest News | No Comments

Genetic Signatures’ Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Doug Millar, will be presenting at the 27th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) on the 23rd April 2017 in Vienna, Austria.

Dr Millar will present results on the development of a 3base™ Flavivirus and Alphavirus Detection kit. The test allows for the detection of 15 of the most common flavivirus and alphavirus infections in the world, including dengue, West Nile virus, Zika, yellow fever virus, and chikungunya.

“Our novel 3baseTM technology allows for screening of diverse families of viruses in a single assay. The simultaneous screening of these flavivirus and alphavirus groups will provide faster results thus allowing for more effective treatment and reduce the risk of transmission to healthy individuals” said Dr Millar.
