Great Basin Scientific, Inc. Raises $3.6 Million in Bridge Funding to Prepare for Launch of First Product
Date:6/17/2009

d to begin in August.

Future tests beyond hospital-acquired infections (HAIs)

In addition to its first product for MRSA testing, the company is also developing tests for Group B Streptococcus - the most common cause of sepsis and meningitis in newborns, and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted infection of which certain types can lead to cervical cancer.

Great Basin Scientific's technology has several advantages over the traditional Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method that requires the skills of highly-trained technicians and often times multiple rooms to avoid cross contamination of tests. Its automated, highly-sensitive, easy-to-use integrated cartridge system can be performed in a CLIA-rated moderately complex or waived laboratory, and will give healthcare providers and their patients the benefit of point-of-care test results within a 20 - 60 minute time frame at costs much lower than current molecular solutions. Other benefits include the ability to test for 32 distinct targets in a single assay and no batching of tests required.
