On July 30, 2018, GNA Biosolutions will be one of three finalists in the American Association of Clinical Chemistry’s (AACC) first-ever Disruptive Technology Award. GNA will be presenting data on the company’s proprietary Pulse Controlled Amplification (PCA) technology during a featured session at the 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo. The AACC Disruptive Technology Award recognizes innovative testing solutions that improve patient care through diagnostic performance or access to high-quality testing.
GNA Biosolutions has demonstrated that PCA technology can detect dangerous pathogens within minutes in a variety of non-traditional laboratory settings such as field-hospitals, with the sensitivity and specificity of laboratory-based molecular diagnostics. GNA is currently developing an ultrafast (15 minutes or less), portable, low-cost integrated sample-to-result platform for infectious disease testing at the Point of Care (POC). The platform’s assay menu is currently planned to include Multidrug Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB), Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), and Multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria (MDRGN).
The 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting is being held July 29-August 2 in Chicago, Illinois.
