This article was originally published in Clinica
LightUp Technologies, of Huddinge, Sweden, plans to release DNA analysis products, including diagnostic assays, using fluorescence-based technology licensed from US firm Molecular Probes. The LightUp probe products, scheduled for launch in May 2003, can identify and quantify bacteria, viruses and other pathogens via the detection and analysis of DNA. Molecular Probes, of Eugene, Oregon, will supply fluorescent stains for the probe assays, which increase sensitivity in detecting DNA and other nucleic acids.
