CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dynex Technologies announced today it has conducted a successful field trial of its patented M²™ Multiplexed Microwell system to test for five different diseases with a single process as part of a serosurvey program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Dynex's MMRVT panel tested each patient for measles, mumps, rubella, varicella and tetanus in the program under the direction of Dr. Anne Rimoin, Associate Professor of Epidemiology at UCLA. These diseases present a significant danger of child mortality and congenital deformation of unborn children. The survey is designed to develop a nationwide immunity profile, which in turn will be used to design immunization programs within the DRC. In this work 40,000 respondents will be surveyed with 8,000 children being tested for MMRVT immunity via dried blood spot sample collection. The project is being funded by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in partnership with UCLA and coordinated by the Kinshasa School of Public Health.
