MRIGlobal, Inc. Key Developments
Rex Investment Limited Selects MRIGlobal to Lead Study and Pilot Project
Jul 30 15
MRIGlobal has been selected by Rex Investment Limited of Tanzania to perform a feasibility study and a pilot project to provide electricity to a remote island village in Lake Victoria that has no access to electricity. The project will be partially funded by an $818,000 grant from the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). The estimated 60-80 kWp PV-battery-diesel hybrid minigrid will provide power for up to 400 residential households in the Ukerewe District in northwestern Tanzania. MRIGlobal will be supported in various phases of the project by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), SunEdison, Enphase Energy, HOMER LLC, and Rulex Media, a local subcontractor in Tanzania. The feasibility study and related pilot project will investigate and demonstrate the use of off-grid, hybrid PV-battery storage-diesel based minigrids in remote locations that are not currently connected to the national electric power transmission and distribution system.

MRIGlobal Wins Contract to Develop Whole Genome Sequencing Diagnostic System
Feb 23 15
MRIGlobal announced that it has been awarded a $14.8 million contract to develop an end-to-end next generation sequencing system for clinical diagnosis of infectious diseases. MRIGlobal's proposed Sample-to-Sequence system will take clinical samples (blood or saliva, for example) and generate high-quality whole genome sequences of bacteria and viruses. The diagnostic tool will be able to identify a broad range of human pathogens, from a single sample with particular emphasis on emerging pathogens and those not identifiable by available rapid diagnostic methods. With the Sample-to-Sequence system, a clinician will send a single sample to a laboratory for sequencing. The genomes uncovered in the sample will be identified against a developed database of microorganisms capable of causing infectious diseases.
