Magellan Biosciences and Miacom Diagnostics Team Up to Enable Faster, Easier Identification of Pathogens as Part of Magellan's End-to-End Suite of Microbiology Products Designed to Streamline Lab Workflow and Enable Better Treatment Decisions
Date:4/11/2011

CHELMSFORD, Mass., and DUESSELDORF, Germany, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Magellan Biosciences, a global manufacturer of products designed to make diagnostic testing easier, more cost-effective, and less labor-intensive, is partnering with Germany-based miacom diagnostics GmbH to bring miacom's unique, cost-effective family of molecular tests to the U.S. and Canadian markets. The 30-minute tests identify sepsis-related pathogens directly from blood-culture bottles, enhancing Magellan's suite of blood culture, microbial identification, and susceptibility test products for microbiology laboratories. The combined offering is designed to provide fast, reliable results for laboratories of all sizes, enabling clinicians to make more-informed treatment decisions that improve patient care and help in the global fight against drug resistance.

The product suite will include Magellan's TREK-brand VersaTREK® microbial-detection system, miacom's lucesco® IVD (in vitro diagnostic) kits for affordable, rapid identification of bacteria and fungi/yeast from blood cultures, and Magellan's TREK-brand Sensititre® susceptibility-testing system. Pathogens from a positive blood culture on the VersaTREK system can be identified quickly using a lucesco IVD kit, with microbial susceptibility determined using the Sensititre system. Under the terms of the agreement, Magellan will be the exclusive U.S. and Canada provider of Bacteremia and Fungimia panels using the miacom platform. Four miacom diagnostics tests have already been approved for use in Europe; this year, Magellan expects to market a family of miacom sepsis tests available for research use only in the U.S. while beginning the clinical trials toward FDA clearance.

Commenting on the agreement, miacom's Chief Executive Officer, Mirko Stange, Ph.D., said, "We are pleased to partne
