SeraCare Life Sciences, Inc. Key Developments

SeraCare Life Sciences Expands Genetic Portfolio with New Accurun(R) Product

SeraCare Life Sciences announced the launch of its new ACCURUN(R) 611 product, a robust product that demonstrates consistent performance over time. This reference material is designed to support detection of the Factor V Leiden mutation and the Factor II gene variant, as well as mutations in the Methlyenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene that are associated with significant health problems. ACCURUN(R) 611 meets the needs of a broad range of molecular lab applications by providing heterozygous, mutant, or wild type scores for Factor II, Factor V, and MTHFR. It is ready-to-use genomic DNA manufactured from immortalized Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs) derived from human samples. Mutations were confirmed by a variety of commercial SNP genotyping assays, providing a robust challenge for all mutations in only two vials.

SeraCare Life Sciences, Inc. Unveils New Cytomegalovirus DNA Panel

SeraCare Life Sciences, Inc. has unveiled a new CMV DNA AccuSpan Linearity Panel. This new offering is a nine member panel made from serial dilutions of a cultured virus with established reactivity for CMV DNA. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of the herpes viruses that infect cells and cause cellular enlargement. CMV infections are usually asymptomatic in healthy individuals but are considered a threat to unborn babies, infants and those who have weakened immune systems or are undergoing organ transplants. The CMV DNA AccuSpan Linearity Panel consists of seven positive members representing serial log dilutions of cultured virus in CMV DNA negative diluent, one negative member prepared from the diluent, and one member of diluent to perform additional dilutions as desired. The results of the CMV test were calibrated to the WHO international CMV Standard for Nucleic Acid Amplification Techniques and show a nearly 1:1 linearity.
