At Medlab Middle East 2023, QuidelOrtho Corporation (San Diego, CA, USA) is showcasing for the first time the benefits of the combined organization’s consolidated portfolio of world-class technologies and platforms, through expanded access to clinical chemistry, immunoassay, molecular diagnostics, immunohematology, donor screening, and point-of-care diagnostics offerings.

At the QuidelOrtho booth, the focus is on the Savanna automated, sample-to-result, multiplex RT-PCR testing platform that performs real-time Polymerization Chain Reaction (PCR) tests by using the Savanna instrument and Savanna assay cartridges. This evolutionary multiplex molecular platform enables professional customers to analyze up to 12 pathogens or targets, plus controls, from a single assay run in less than 30 minutes. After inserting the assay cartridge, the instrument performs sample and reagent preparation, nucleic acid extraction and amplification, real-time detection of RNA or DNA target sequence, and qualitative or quantitative result interpretation from a variety of sample types. The Savanna system is intended to aid in the diagnosis of the related diseases.

QuidelOrtho is also demonstrating the Savanna RVP4 Assay (Respiratory Viral Panel-4), a rapid, multiplexed nucleic acid test intended for use with the Savanna instrument for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of influenza A (Flu A), influenza B (Flu B), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and SARS-CoV-2 RNA isolated from human nasal or nasopharyngeal swabs in media obtained from patients with signs and symptoms of respiratory tract infection. The in vitro diagnostic test is intended to aid in the differential diagnosis of infections with these viruses. The Savanna RVP4 Assay comes in a fully integrated cartridge that is stable at room temperature.
