Meridian Bioscience Receives FDA Clearance for New Molecular Amplification Test, illumigene® HSV 1&2

Meridian Bioscience, Inc. announced that it has received FDA clearance for two new molecular assays for the detection of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 (HSV-1) and Type 2 (HSV-2), to be run on its illumigene® molecular platform. The illumigene® HSV 1&2 assays, launched earlier 2015 in Europe, are now available immediately in the US – they are the eighth and ninth assays added to the illumigene® molecular menu now that includes; C. difficile, Group A Streptococcus, Group B Streptococcus, Mycoplasma, Pertussis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. illumigene® HSV 1&2 assays utilize loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) technology for the qualitative detection and differentiation of HSV-1 and HSV-2 in cutaneous and mucocutaneous specimens. The test procedure is remarkably simple, highly sensitive and provides results in less than one hour. The illumigene platform does not require expensive capital equipment or costly annual service contracts. The performance and simplicity of this technology, along with its cost efficiency and small footprint, make these new assays ideal for enabling a more rapid diagnosis in a moderately complex laboratory setting.
