LexaGene Holdings (TSXV: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF), a molecular diagnostics company that develops fully automated rapid pathogen detection systems, today announced that it has started a series of studies required by the FDA for Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”) testing for its COVID-19 assay in a point-of-care (“POC”) environment using its fully automated MiQLab(TM) system. “I’m excited we have progressed to the point where we have started our FDA study. Our open-access technology is unlike any other on the market today, as it could be configured quickly to detect new variants, such as the recent UK variant 1 (aka SARS-CoV-2 VUI 202012/01),” said Dr. Jack Regan, LexaGene’s CEO and founder. “Since our system is capable of high multiplexing and is microfluidic in nature, it is easy to add newly developed Polymerase Chain Reaction (“PCR”) tests to detect variants that are either poor matches to the vaccines or are resistant to any developed therapies, which is critical to help get this pandemic under control.”
