New partnership with Abacus Diagnostica Oy

10 April 2017

The GenomEra product range is now available in the UK, France and Benelux regions from Launch Diagnostics and in the Republic of Ireland from Accusay Diagnostics.

Abacus Diagnostica Oy is a Finnish molecular diagnostics company specialised in rapid DNA testing utilising the patented GenomEra® -technology. They are located in the dynamic Science Park area with a strong focus in life sciences in the city of Turku at the Southwest coast of Finland.

Abacus Diagnostica Oy was founded in 2004 by the inventors of the GenomEra® -technology at the Department of Biotechnology at the University of Turku. They are currently developing new technologies and expanding assay selection for the GenomEra® CDX platform, intended for the identification of infectious diseases like Clostridium difficile, MRSA, Norovirus and other critical human pathogens and antibiotic resistance markers.

The GenomEra® CDX workstation provides a powerful tool to run DNA testing routinely and cost-efficiently without compromising the quality of results and reliability.

In everyday use this means:


All PCR reagents are preloaded on the test chips. The automated analyser includes built-in PCR amplification and detection, easy-to-use software and result interpretation.


The assay principle is based on sensitive end-point detection with proven time-resolved fluorometry.


The test chips are irreversibly sealed by the analyser to eliminate contamination and allow safe disposal.


The system features allow for rapid thermal cycling – definitive results for 4 patients are obtained in about an hour allowing a throughput of 96 tests in 24 hours from a single analyser. Up to eight analysers can run from a workstation for higher capacity.
