Magellan Biosciences Companies to Feature Diagnostic Products Designed to Improve Health Outcomes at the Clinical Lab Expo
Date:7/29/2008

- Product launches: new FDA-cleared test for vitamin D sufficiency, new antimicrobial-susceptibility system/panels for MRSA and other pathogens,

and enhanced automated laboratory systems - The latest systems to screen for lead poisoning will also be on view

WASHINGTON, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Visitors to Booth 3210 at the 2008 AACC/ASCLS Clinical Lab Expo will see Magellan Biosciences' continued emergence as a new leader in clinical-diagnostics markets worldwide. The Chelmsford, Massachusetts-based company and its subsidiaries, ESA Biosciences, Dynex Technologies, and TREK Diagnostic Systems, will feature products designed to help doctors make better, faster, more-informed treatment decisions with diagnostic assays and automated systems for the busy clinical lab, as well as a point-of-care system for the clinician's office. The Clinical Lab Expo opens today at Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Magellan will hold a press conference this afternoon at 2:45 ET in room 103 B.

"Diagnostic testing accounts for less than five percent of healthcare spending, yet it influences some 80 percent of healthcare decisions, so a test's accuracy, reproducibility, and consistency of results - regardless of who is performing it or where - is of paramount importance," said Magellan President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert J. Rosenthal, Ph.D. "And while test volumes are growing dramatically, particularly in hospital-based labs, so too is the critical shortage of qualified laboratory personnel. Whether it's measuring vitamin D sufficiency, which is vital to human health, performing susceptibility testing to help fight against MRSA and antibiotics resistance, automating ELISA assays to increase accuracy and reproducibility, or screening children to identify those at risk for lead poisoning - Magellan's goal is always to develop a better, more cost-effective, and staff-efficient way to address a critical unmet need in t
