Promising results for Respiratory Syncytial virus (RSV) test with Orion GenRead instrument
New RT-SIBA assay for detection of Respiratory Syncytial virus (RSV) RNA with Orion GenRead instrument has been presented at the 20th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Clinical Virology, held in Italy last week. The study was conducted in collaboration with Finnish Centres for Military Medicine and for Biological Threat Preparedness and Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare.
Clinical patient samples were treated with a simple sample preparation procedure and the results were available in less than 20 minutes. Currently, Orion Diagnostica is developing an all-inclusive Orion GenRead test for RSV. The assay is further optimised to maximize the excellent performance of the test. The launch of the new kit is planned in 2018.
