Test Platform from Thuringia Checks Vaccination Status for Corona, Measles, Diphtheria & Tetanus simultaneously

Scientists at the InfectoGnostics Research Campus Jena have developed a new microarray that can detect antibodies against a wide range of infectious agents. With a single drop of the patient's blood, it is thus possible to test whether the immune system has responded to a vaccination or if there is…

INTER-ARRAY test kit can differentiate more than 700 strains of Staphylococcus aureus

InfectoGnostics researchers have developed a test that can detect genetic characteristics of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus and distinguish between more than 700 strains of this pathogen. Virulence factors and resistance genes, including those of the "multiresistant" variants (MRSA), can be…

Facilitating microbiome analyses: InfectoGnostics researchers remove irrelevant DNA already during sequencing

InfectoGnostics researchers at Jena University Hospital (JUH) and the Leibniz Institute for Photonic Technology (Leibniz-IPHT) have been able to show how irrelevant human DNA can be sorted out already during sequencing with nanopore systems to enable more precise analyses of microbiomes and bring…
