Quanterix Simoa Technology Unlocks Low-Level Markers Critical to Rapid Triage Test in Study for Active Pulmonary Tuberculosis
Findings by leading researchers demonstrate the promise and relevance of Simoa in vast application areas
“There are vast applications for our technology in hospitals, research organizations, academic institutions and field operations. This study shows the ultra-sensitive Simoa technology has the potential to provide the opportunity to identify and triage cohorts of patients at any stage of the disease,” said
The Quanterix Simoa technology provides the ability to develop homebrew assays toward desired biomarkers of choice with the advantage of using minimal sample volume. The Simoa homebrew kits include all reagents and training required to develop these custom assays. Given the flexibility of the Simoa homebrew assay kits, the investigators – supported by the
Simoa allowed researchers to complete gaps that had been too low to detect in the commercial assay. The research team is continuing to refine and improve this test with the hope that it could be used to triage patients with active TB in the future, potentially saving millions of lives.
