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

r with Magellan to improve patient care across the globe. Unlike most other molecular technologies, miacom assays can be performed in virtually any microbiology laboratory. Doctors no longer have to rely on an empirical approach to therapy – the combination of our rapid lucesco IVD results and Sensititre susceptibility testing eliminates guess work, enabling clinicians to prescribe the best, most-targeted therapy to their patients as quickly as possible."

The miacom assays, which incorporate a next-generation fluorescence in situ hybridization, streamline and greatly simplify molecular testing – yielding multiplex pathogen identification in just 30 minutes. Further, handling and performance limitations from error-prone washing steps common to traditional techniques are completely eliminated in miacom's proprietary method. The workflow is as simple as performing a Gram stain and results are available one- to five-days earlier than traditional culture methods.

"Getting patients on the correct antibiotic, in the right dosage, in the least amount of time is crucial to both patient health, and to countering the emerging problem of drug resistance," said Magellan President and Chief Executive Officer Hiroshi Uchida, Ph.D. "By combining rapid miacom identification technology with the flexibility and accuracy of the VersaTREK and Sensititre systems, laboratories of all sizes can battle drug resistance with a cost-effective solution for blood culture, identification, and susceptibility testing."

About the miacom lucesco IVD kits

miacom diagnostics specializes in in vitro diagnostic tests for pathogens causing acute systemic diseases. All lucesco kits enable simultaneous detection of the most-clinically relevant pathogens directly from specimens, and deliver results within 30 minutes. miacom has already commercialized several rapid tests for the European market, including diagnostics for the most-important systemic
