Mesa Biotech Inc., a privately-held, molecular diagnostic company that has developed an affordable, sample-to-answer, CLIA-waived PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing platform designed specifically for point-of-care (POC) infectious disease diagnosis, today announced the launch of its respiratory syncytial virus test (RSV). Mesa will demonstrate its expanded, novel Accula™ Test System at the 71st American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo. The Accula System’s RSV and Flu A/Flu B molecular tests will be on exhibit in Booth 3902. Sekisui Diagnostics distributes both products in the US under the Silaris™ brand.
