STMicroelectronics and Veredus Laboratories Launch Market's First Lab-on-Chip for Rapid Molecular Flu Detection at Point of Need
Date:3/24/2008

Joint ST/Veredus lab set up in Singapore to develop future lab-on-chip

applications

GENEVA and SINGAPORE, March 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Following the success of the evaluation trials conducted at the prestigious National University Hospital of Singapore, Veredus Laboratories and STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) today announced the commercial availability of VereFlu(TM), a portable lab-on-chip application for rapid detection of all major influenza types at the point of need. Unlike existing diagnostic methods, VereFlu is a breakthrough molecular diagnostic test that can detect infection with high accuracy and sensitivity, within two hours providing genetic information of the infection that traditionally would take days to weeks to learn. With its high level of automation, users outside the traditional lab environment can easily perform the tests at the point of need.

Combining STMicroelectronics' In-Check(TM) lab-on-chip platform with Veredus' bio-application capability, VereFlu is the market's first test which has integrated two powerful molecular biological applications in a lab-on-chip the size of a fingernail. It can identify and differentiate human strains of Influenza A and B viruses, including the Avian Flu strain H5N1, in a single test.

"We are pleased to report that our evaluation trials show the suitability of the VereFlu diagnostic application for field testing and deployment," said Associate Professor Raymond Lin, Head of Microbiology, Department of Laboratory Medicine, National University Hospital in Singapore. "The diagnostic reliability of this novel device makes it a powerful weapon against future influenza pandemics."

"VereFlu will enable healthcare professiona
