Biomerica is launching its one-step, disposable EZ-StrepA test in the US, which can diagnose Streptococcus A throat infections in just five minutes, says the firm. The test, which involves collecting a throat swab, can be used in the doctors office or as a point-of-care diagnostic, avoiding the need to send the sample to a laboratory. The EZ-StrepA test will find a "favourable position" in the $130 million market, said the Newport Beach, California firm.
