Infectious diseases

The continuous increase and availability of transportation solutions throughout the world for both people and goods has the consequence that the risk for global infectious disease outbreaks and rapid spread has never been so high. The recent H1N1 epidemic greatly impacted both human populations and economic activities. Response time in terms of the diagnosis of infected people is of paramount importance to rapidly contain the spread of the disease.

PCR-based technology has been successfully applied so far to this particular field named bio-preparedness.

Progenus proposes PCR and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) -based services:

  • Design and validation of in-vitro diagnostic tests.
  • Detection of infectious agents responsible for HAI.
