IntelligentMDx To Present Development of Fully Automated Diagnostics for HSV-1/2 and Influenza A/B and RSV at the 15th Annual European Society for Clinical Virology Meeting

August 30, 2012

IntelligentMDx (IMDx) will present development and performance of two high-throughput, fully automated, molecular diagnostic tests at the 2012 European Society for Clinical Virology (ESCV) Meeting. The annual ESCV meeting in Madrid, Spain on September 4-7, 2012 is a forum for robust discussions and presentations centered on a variety of topics relating to viral infections in humans. This year’s presentations by IMDx fall under the category of “Viral Diagnosis and New Diagnostic Technologies” and will highlight the proprietary bioinformatics process employed by IMDx to develop rapid and accurate test solutions.

Dr. Phillip Moen of IMDx will present the unique design and development of two viral assays: the CE-marked HSV-1/2 assay and the Influenza A/B and RSV assay which is anticipated to receive CE-marking in early 2013.

These viral assays are part of a group of infectious disease assays designed, developed and manufactured by IMDx under a multi-year distribution agreement with Abbott. In the past year, IMDx has obtained CE-marking and commercialized 4 high-throughput diagnostic tests designed for use on the Abbott m2000™ RealTime System. In addition to the HSV-1/2 assay, this collection of assays includes 3 assays that target threatening bacterial infections: Clostridium difficile, Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci and Group B Streptococcus
