Based on Pathogenica's DxSeq[TM] technologyand the Ion Torrent[TM] sequencing platform, the kit enables identification of pathogens with high accuracy, at high specific strain resolution and at a scale that could make hospital-wide testing practical.

"Hospital acquired infections are becoming an increasingly serious health risk for patients and present significant economic issues for hospitals," said Peter Silvester, President, Life Technologies EMEA.  "The combination of Pathogenica's technology with the Ion Torrent PGM[TM] will provide a solution that can help address this problem by enabling hospitals to quickly detect these types of infections with extreme accuracy."

Pathogenica's analysis software provides simple, concise output reports that indicate which species and strains are present and at what levels. These kits are not for use in the diagnosis of hospital patients.

Current methods for detecting causative organisms can take days for results or are limited to a few pathogens.
