Luminex Corporation Announces Management Changes

Luminex Corporation Receives FDA Clearance to Add New Clinical Targets and Additional Sample Type for Use With xTAG Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel

Luminex Corporation announced it has received U.S. FDA clearance to add three new targets to its xTAG Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel. The targets include Adenovirus 40/41, Entamoeba histolytica and Vibrio cholerae. In addition, FDA has now cleared xTAG GPP for use with specimens in Cary-Blair medium, a common transport medium for collection and preservation of microbiological specimens. As the first multiplexed U.S. IVD cleared test for infectious gastroenteritis, xTAG GPP simultaneously detects 14 common viral, bacterial, and parasitic causative pathogens from a single patient sample. By testing for greater than 90% of the causative pathogens of infectious gastroenteritis in a single test, clinicians can more quickly identify and treat the causative agent. Additionally co-infections can be more easily identified. Simultaneous molecular testing on a single sample within a single shift also provides significant benefits to laboratories in terms of workflow and resource utilization. The ability to scale throughput by processing 96-well plates allows laboratories to easily tailor their sample processing to physician demand.
