BEVERLY, Mass. – September 3, 2021 – LexaGene Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: LXXGF; TSX-V: LXG) a molecular diagnostics company developing automated rapid polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing solutions for veterinary diagnostics and biopharmaceutical manufacturing, is pleased to announce a three-city tradeshow itinerary for its MiQLab System. Beginning this September 7th and through September 26th, the MiQLab will be featured at some of the veterinary industry’s landmark events in Las Vegas, Nashville, and San Antonio.
Dr. Jack Regan, LexaGene’s Founder and CEO stated, “We’re gearing up for a busy and productive fall as we prepare for three of the bigger events in the veterinary marketplace, after a year where all in-person events were cancelled or held virtually. We expect MiQLab’s in-person presence will have significant impact in the veterinary marketplace and look forward to demonstrating how vet practices will greatly benefit from in-clinic PCR diagnostics. Our attendance allows us to take a full-on approach with building brand awareness, exciting potential buyers, and improving our market reach through our revamped marketing and sales strategies”.
From September 7-9, LexaGene will exhibit and host a podium speaking opportunity at this year’s WVC 93rd Annual Conference, a gathering of veterinary marketplace leaders featuring over 800 continuing education sessions and 400+ exhibitors. Additionally, Dr. Regan will speak on the topic of “In-Clinic PCR Testing for Pathogen ID and Antibiotic Resistance Detection”.
Nashville’s 27th International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Conference from September 12-14, hosts some of the nation’s top emergency and critical care veterinarians who have the greatest need for rapid in-clinic pathogen testing. Additionally, LexaGene’s senior scientist, Dr. Eric DiBasio, MSc, PhD, will present a poster describing a study using LexaGene’s MiQLab Bacterial and AMR Test for rapid detection of UTI pathogens. These data demonstrate that LexaGene’s technology compares favorably with traditional culture and sensitivity testing and can enable veterinarians to make more timely, evidence-based treatment decisions.
Rounding out the month, LexaGene will travel to San Antonio for the Southwest Veterinary Symposium being held September 23-26. This four-day symposium is packed with continuing education, exhibits, and interactive labs. LexaGene will showcase its MiQLab to one of the largest regional veterinary audiences and will have a podium opportunity. Dr. Manoj Nair, MVSc, PhD, LexaGene’s Director of Applications and Assay Development, will speak on the topic of bringing automated PCR testing for pathogens inside the veterinary hospital.
In addition to the veterinary conferences, Dr. Regan continues to participate in strategic investor relations conferences. For a complete listing of LexaGene’s conferences, please visit our corporate events page.

About LexaGene Holdings Inc.
LexaGene is a molecular diagnostics company that develops molecular diagnostic systems for pathogen detection and genetic testing for other molecular markers for on-site rapid testing in veterinary diagnostics, food safety and for use in open-access markets such as clinical research, agricultural testing and biodefense. End-users simply need to collect a sample, load it onto the instrument with a sample preparation cartridge, enter sample ID and press ‘go’. The MiQLab™ system delivers excellent sensitivity, specificity, and breadth of detection and can return results in approximately two hours. The unique open-access feature is designed for custom testing so that end-users can load their own real-time PCR assays onto the instrument to target any genetic target of interest.
