  • Allows uptake of Genetic Signatures 3base™ technology in up to 11,000 CLIA certified laboratories in the US
  • To be officially launched during the American Society of Microbiology conference on June 17, 2016

Sydney, Australia, 17 June, 2016: Molecular diagnostics company Genetic Signatures Ltd (ASX: GSS) will today launch a range of Analyte Specific Reagents (ASRs) in the United States. These ASR products utilise the company’s proprietary 3base™ technology and cover a range of pathogen targets. US Laboratories regulated by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) may purchase and use ASRs as building blocks to develop and validate proprietary tests for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. These laboratory-developed tests are commonly used in the US market and are offered in up to 11,000 CLIA certified laboratories1.

The ASR products will be officially launched at the American Society of Microbiology conference, Boston, June 17-20, 2016. Genetic Signatures will be exhibiting and showcasing their full product range to more than 10,000 attendees.

“We know that the market in the US seeks technologically superior products that may be used in laboratory-developed tests.” said Mr. Mike Aicher, President of Genetic Signatures US. “This is the next logical step for Genetic Signatures after FDA listing of our Clinical Concentrator Kit, which we completed in August of 2015.”

“This progressive step in our US market entry strategy brings our proprietary 3Base™ technology to the majority of hospital and commercial laboratories in the US,” said Genetic Signatures’ Chief Executive Officer, John Melki PhD. “We believe that our technologically superior ASRs will be well received by the American market.”
