ARIES System and Flu A/B & RSV Assay Evaluated by Erasmus MC in New Publication
Date:11/17/2016

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Luminex Corporation (NASDAQ: LMNX) today announced that the internationally renowned Department of Viroscience at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, has evaluated the ARIES® System and Flu A/B & RSV CE-IVD Assay for clinical testing in a recently published study. Erasmus MC is a consultation center for the World Health Organization on viral infections, as well as serving as the National Reference Center for Influenza and Emerging Infections in The Netherlands.

In the study, the ARIES® platform and Flu A/B & RSV Assay showed a high clinical specificity and sensitivity, comparable to laboratory developed RT-PCR assays, and better than those of established assays such as immunochromatographic tests and direct immunofluorescence assays. Ease of use was found to be comparable to other rapid molecular test platforms. The ARIES® platform is unique in that it can also run in-house developed real-time assays with generic ARIES® cassettes.

The ARIES(R) Flu A/B & RSV Assay is a rapid, accurate method for the detection and differentiation of influenza A virus, influenza B virus, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) from nasopharyngeal swab (NPS) specimens using the ARIES(R) System.
  • The ARIES(R) Flu A/B & RSV Assay is a rapid, accurate method for the detection and differentiation of influenza A virus, influenza B virus, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) from nasopharyngeal swab (NPS) specimens using the ARIES(R) System.

    "We are proud that after thorough evaluation, ARIES has been found to be effective and easy to use by one of the world's leading medical centers for clinical virology," said Thomas Pracht, Managing Director, EMEIA, at Luminex Corporation. "The Erasmus study demonstrates the quality and performance of the ARIES® platform and the value of the system for molecular diagnostic labs that want to perform 'out of sync' MDx testing — in other words, outside of office hours testing or stat testing during office hours in between runs. The study also underlines the importance of 'point of impact' tests, where results have an immediate impact on patient care and clinical decision making, even outside normal office hours." 

    Read the complete study, "Performance evaluation of a rapid molecular diagnostic, MultiCode based, sample-to-answer assay for the simultaneous detection of Influenza A, B and respiratory syncytial viruses," published in the Journal of Clinical Virology, December 2016, Volume 85, Pages 65–70.
