In the latest issue of the Pathologist, Dr. Jack Regan discusses the strategic priorities and technologies that could prevent the next global pandemic:

Our inability to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2 has largely been due to the lack of sufficient surveillance and diagnostic infrastructure – including better point-of-care testing.

Arguably, our failure to adequately prepare for a novel pathogen has resulted in the COVID-19 pandemic, which, at the time of publishing, has claimed over 605,000 lives and caused 2.3 million hospitalizations in the US alone. We expect similar threats to emerge in the future – so what should we be doing differently to better prepare and prevent a repeat catastrophe?

Read on and learn how open-access, multiplex testing can prevent future outbreaks.

LexaGene

LexaGene develops fully automated, rapid molecular testing at the point-of-need for accurate pathogen detection in human clinical diagnostics, veterinary diagnostics, food safety, and other markets.

There is Even a Black Friday for Buying Capital Equipment

LexaGene’s MiQLab has direct benefits for veterinary clinics. Using LexaGene’s proven point-of-care diagnostics for evidence-based treatment of common bacterial infections found in companion animals may also result in cost savings.

Red Rover, Red Rover, Send PCR Testing Over

When thinking about how best to isolate a bacterium, scientists were often held to the standards of taking time to grow cultures in laboratories, a process involving days or weeks to simply prepare the sample for testing. In today’s everchanging world, LexaGene’s MiQLab™ now allows for samples to be captured at point-of-care, inserted into a cartridge, mixed with a reagent, and run through a testing system, shortening the time to result to hours instead of days.

Combating Supply Chain Woes: Decentralize Your In-Clinic Diagnostic Testing

More than ever, vet practices are looking for efficient and cost-effective methodologies to take control of these variables and manage costs.
