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

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.
