Bio-Rad Laboratories launched for the first time in South East Asia, their next generation of A1c testing equipment - D100. This technology, combined, improved HPLC accuracy and precision, high-throughput capacity, and simplified results review.

The Zika Virus has been one of the most talked about concerns in the healthcare industry, EUROIMMUN AG, a manufacturer of test systems and instruments for medical diagnostics, has developed the first commercial CE-IVD marked serological detection of Zika virus infections. The ELISA and indirect immunofluorescence tests from EUROIMMUN enable the determination of specific antibodies (IgM, IgG) against the virus is now available as CE-IVD marked. These tests are currently used in clinical study at the Fiocruz (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz), an institute linked to the Brazilian Ministry of Health.

“Our ELISAs are based on very specific, recombinant antigens which are produced in EUROIMMUN research laboratories. Positive results are a clear indicator of a Zika virus infection and the immunofluorescence mosaics help laboratory physicians to investigate patient samples for other viral fever diseases in parallel. This is important for differential diagnosis, since in Latin America there are also dengue and chikungunya viruses, which cause similar symptoms and are transmitted by the same species of mosquitoes as the Zika virus. We hope our test systems can help to clarify as soon as possible whether there is a link between the cases of microcephaly and Zika infections,” says Katja Steinhagen, head of the ELISA Infectious Serology department at EUROIMMUN AG.

Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, in charge of the healthcare portfolio within Informa's Global Exhibitions division, organises 26 exhibitions yearly covering the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe and US market, connecting more than 150,000 healthcare professionals worldwide and offering a range of marketing solutions for companies involved with the healthcare sector.
