EUROIMMUN (Lübeck, Germany) and Xpedite Diagnostics (Hallbergmoos, Germany) have entered into a strategic partnership for offering faster and easier protocols for DNA extraction at the point-of-care. Current users of the EUROArray diagnostic platform will now have access to the EUROArray SwiftX-traction Kit designed for rapid manual DNA extraction. EUROArray SwiftX-traction significantly reduces the complexity as well as processing time of the DNA extraction. It can extract DNA from different challenging sample types using just a few steps that take less than 30 minutes.

The new extraction method is currently being validated in combination with various CE-marked EUROArray products. Xpedite Diagnostics aims to soon register the extraction kit itself as a CE-IVD device under the European IVD Regulation 2017/746. Xpedite Diagnostics’ partnership with EUROIMMUN demonstrates its technical leadership in offering high-performing and user-friendly nucleic acid extraction solutions. This, combined with its strong expertise in quality management and regulatory affairs, makes Xpedite Diagnostics well-positioned to act as a reliable and efficient contract developer as well as manufacturer for other IVD companies.

“EUROArray SwiftX-traction was tailored specifically to the needs of users of the EUROArray diagnostic platform and is based on our SwiftX Toolbox,” said Dr. Andy Wende, CEO and Head of R&D at Xpedite Diagnostics GmbH. “The development was finished in only a few months and will result in a CE-IVD marked DNA extraction kit. It merges several advantages such as high sensitivity, short workflows, and improved usability. EUROArray SwiftX-traction will enhance customer satisfaction and acceptance, ultimately leading to a better sales position of the EUROArray diagnostic platform in the segments Dermatomycosis, STI testing, and HPV typing.”
