We have just launched the ICEPlex System, which is the first molecular diagnostics system that is capable of high multiplex, multi-modal qPCR, and Al brings many years of experience in the commercialization of innovative products. Al's established track record of commercializing diagnostic technologies will provide PrimeraDx with great strategic vision as we bring personalized medicine to the clinic."

Dr. Luderer has over 30 years of leadership experience in diagnostics, therapeutics and research tools companies. He currently serves as CEO and Board Member at Integrated Diagnostics.
