Laboratory-developed tests

More relevant than ever – the need for laboratory-developed tests grows

Today´s health management is hardly possible without laboratory-developed tests (LDTs). The need for fast response time in disease outbreak situations and the lack of approved complete IVD workflows for many diseases make LDTs essential for patient care and health management.

QIAGEN – a leader in molecular diagnostics – provides solutions which enable your lab to set up and provide LDTs, fast, efficiently and effectively.

    Read about the considerations that Virginia Commonwealth University Molecular Diagnostics Services had about automating their workflows.

     

    “What has also been important to us as these automated systems have evolved is the improved ability to process different kinds of specimens and specimen tubes that work well for molecular diagnostics”

  • Getting high sensitivity in a cost-efficient manner

    Find out how the small startup GoodGut developed a nonintrusive test for early detection of colorectal cancer using unique microbiome biomarkers, paving the way towards more accurate CRC diagnoses and prevention.

     

    “To prepare the samples, we use the QIAGEN Multiplex PCR Kit because of its high sensitivity to detect even the smallest amounts of DNA. Our samples may contain less than 10 micrograms of the bacterial DNA we want to detect…. A small company like ours must work in a very cost-efficient manner, for example, by screening large numbers of samples automatically,.."

  • Increasing productivity with automation

    In this interview, Anne Kailow talks about the decision to automate sample and assay prep at Herlev Hospital, Denmark.

     

    “Meeting the new demands required investment in new equipment that could significantly enhance our workflow through automation, and reduce the amount of hands-on work required,”
