  • Changing the Molecular Testing Playing Field: PathogenDx’s D3 Array


    By Susan Evans

    What if you could create a testing environment that enhances the ability for a clinical sample, such as a bacterium responsible for an infection, to find and bind to a molecular detection probe? If you could, you would have the potential to significantly increase the testing speed, improving patient outcome and care, while also increasing the accuracy and sensitivity of the laboratory test. The future of molecular testing.

  • Introducing the PhytoX Assay for Plant Viruses

    PhytoX Assay for plant viruses

    By Shaun Stice, PhD

    Today, plant viruses wipe out as much as 30% of potential Cannabis and Hemp crop yield, a risk to grows that can’t be ignored. PhytoX from PathogenDx let’s labs help growers with quicker results, and take fast action to remove infected plants before viruses spread and impact potency and growth. The easy-to-use RT-PCR microarray assay detects nine plant viruses driving Cannabis, Hemp, and other agriculture yield losses, all in a single test.
