Earlier in her career, Ms. Ordoñez held several senior positions at Hoffmann La-Roche, overseeing the formation of Roche Molecular Systems, where she served as President and Chief Executive Officer, and led the wide-scale commercial application of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology to the research, diagnostic and forensic fields.

RainDance Technologies, Inc. and Blood Systems Research Institute Collaborate to Develop Ultra-Sensitive Assays to Detect and Quantify HIV Latency

RainDance Technologies, Inc. and Blood Systems Research Institute announced a research collaboration to develop blood-based assays and protocols for the precise measurement of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) latent reservoir using RainDance’s RainDrop Digital PCR and ThunderBolts Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Enrichment Systems. As part of this collaboration, BSRI will provide access to the RainDance products to key thought leaders at the new amfAR Institute for HIV Cure Research, an innovative collaborative enterprise focused on developing and validating new approaches that can ultimately lead to a functional cure for HIV. Built on RainDance’s unified picodroplet platform, the RainDrop and ThunderBolts Systems generate millions of individual droplet-based tests per sample, providing the dynamic range and quantitation essential for massively-parallel yet precise single molecule analysis. The collaboration between RainDance and BSRI aims to develop ultra-sensitive, highly precise and low cost NGS and digital PCR methods to detect, measure and monitor replication competent latent HIV with absolute quantitation from limited amounts of bio-available fluids.
