Menon Biosensors Accurately Detects Biological Pathogen in More Than 2,200 Samples
Date:12/19/2013

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Menon Biosensors, a molecular biochemistry company that provides DNA analysis for the diagnosis of biological pathogens, today announced that its nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology successfully detected Yersinia pestis, also known as the plague, in more than 2,200 samples without any false positives or negatives.

In the studies conducted over a six year period, Menon Biosensors' platform technology was able to detect the presence of Yersinia pestis in water, air, blood, sputum, urine and stool. Concentrations were as low as from 1 colony-forming unit (CFU) per sample, with a limit of detection in the range of 1-100 CFU/mL and a dynamic range of 1-10^9 CFU/mL.  Analyzing low level samples required minimal preparation time, and including measurement was completed in less than one hour. Menon Biosensors is currently conducting validation studies at Scripps La Jolla in Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) and Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (TB), with data expected in early 2014.

"Having reviewed the new diagnostic technology, process and assay data generated using Menon Biosensors' technology in identifying several well-known pathogens, I believe this technology provides a foundation to achieve a more facile, next-generation DNA diagnostic platform," said John Spinosa, M.D., Ph.D., pathologist at Scripps La Jolla. "Menon Biosensors' technology has significant implications in molecular biochemistry diagnostic applications for improving patient care and outcomes in an affordable and streamlined manner."

Added David Schlotterbeck, chairman of Menon Biosensors, "This data demonstrates that our technology can more accurately and rapidly detect a biological pathogen compared to currently available tests, and with higher sensitivity. With our upcoming data in C. difficile and TB
