Beckman Coulter Diagnostics and Seegene Supply Agreement
News Nov 17, 2014
Beckman Coulter Diagnostics and Seegene Inc. have announced a Molecular Diagnostic assay supply agreement. Under the agreement, Seegene will begin manufacturing reagents designed exclusively for Beckman Coulter’s new sample-to-answer Molecular Diagnostics instrument, the VERIS MDx System*.
Richard Creager, senior vice president of the MDx Business Unit and chief scientific officer at Beckman Coulter said, “We’re very excited to partner with Seegene and incorporate their novel and proprietary DPO, TOCE and MuDT technologies into our MDx solution. We expect to be able to quickly add to the menu we offer on VERIS with the Seegene Multiplex reagents that enable simultaneous and multiple detection and identification of various types of pathogens in a single test.”
Seegene founder and CEO, Dr. Jong-Yoon Chun, said, “Our observation is that the VERIS system breaks new ground in enabling laboratories to perform MDx testing in the most efficient way possible. This partnership fully supports our promise to contribute to humanity by developing faster, more accurate and cost-effective innovative MDx systems.”
*The VERIS system and VERIS human Cytomegalovirus (CMV) assay are CE cleared in Europe. The system is still in development for the United States; it is not available for in vitro diagnostic use in the United States.

Giant Viruses Invent Their Own GenesNews
Three new members have been isolated and added to the Pandoravirus family. This strange family of viruses, with their giant genomes and many genes with no known equivalents, surprised scientists when they were discovered a few years ago. This new study notes that pandoraviruses appear to be factories for new genes – and therefore new functions.
