Akonni Biosystems Pre-Clinical Results on Rapid, Low-Cost Array Moves Company Closer to Commercialization for its Infectious Disease Test Portfolio

Published: Jan 08, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Akonni Biosystems announced results today from three pre-clinical studies that contribute to the body of clinical evidence that verifies the efficacy of Akonni’s TruDiagnosis molecular diagnostics (MDx) platform. Akonni TruArray® Tests are designed to fulfill market needs for mid-multiplex molecular diagnostics (tens to hundreds of molecular markers) deployed in near point-of-care settings, at a similar cost to conventional culture tests and with the accuracy and speed of gold-standard low-multiplex approaches. These studies, including those for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), multi-drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MDR-TB), and influenza subtyping, were funded and developed over the past six years by carefully leveraging more than $45M in private and public funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Department of Defense (DOD).
