AutoGenomics New RVP Assay Addresses Current Challenge to Detect Flu A - Swine H1N1
Date:5/21/2009

CARLSBAD, Calif., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- AutoGenomics, a leader in developing automated molecular testing solutions, announced today that a Canadian team comprised of the Canada Research Chair in Medical Genomics, Professor Jacques Corbeil and Canada Research Chair on new viruses and antiviral resistance, Professor Guy Boivin has used its enhanced respiratory virus panel assay to test for the presence of the new Flu A - Swine H1N1 virus. "The assay for research use only detected the presence of both the circulating Flu A strains and the new Flu A - H1N1 strain," said Dr. Corbeil. He further stated that "the assay distinguished the new strain from the others as well as determined the presence of an additional 24 viruses that could potentially co-infect the patients, a factor that may increase the severity of the disease."

"This assay will be of great help in the coming flu seasons and facilitate improving hospital control strategies to understand the role of co- infections in the severity of swine flu cases and enable the selection of antiviral agents in the management of influenza infections," said Dr. Boivin.

The tests, conducted at the CHUL hospital affiliated with Laval University were part of an effort from the Canadian Institute of Health Research to promote research in this area of important societal need.

About AutoGenomics

AutoGenomics, Inc., a privately held company based in Carlsbad, CA, has developed the first automated, microarray based multiplexing diagnostic platforms that can be used to assess disease signatures with novel genomic and proteomic markers in the area of genetic disorders, infectious disease, cancer and pharmacogenetics. With the discovery of genes and their link to various disease states the platform has the versatility to revolutionize the way patients are diagnosed, monitored and managed leading to the era of personalized medicine.
