Thermo Fisher Scientific Updates Chromosomal Microarray Analysis Solutions to Comply with IVDR Regulation

Share

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announced today that the Applied Biosystems™ CytoScan™ Dx Assay and Applied Biosystems™ Chromosomal Analysis Suite (ChAS) Dx software now comply with In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (IVDR) 2017/746 in the European Union. These compliance updates will enable cytogenetics testing laboratories to adapt to the latest medical device safety and efficacy frameworks and conformity assessments.

“Thermo Fisher’s unparalleled commitment to driving innovation in chromosomal microarrays has led to advancement of cytogenetic testing capabilities,” said Kevin Lowitz, vice president and general manager, microarray, at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The compliance updates to the CytoScan Dx Assay kit and ChAS Dx software provide our customers in the EU with solutions that can help them maintain high patient safety standards and meet EU IVD regulatory requirements.”

Advancements in chromosomal microarrays (CMAs) have greatly expanded the capabilities of cytogenetics testing in recent years, including the ability to yield insights into genetic risk factors and disorders that are essential to understanding reproductive health. As an in vitro diagnostic CMA test for postnatal analysis, the CytoScan Dx Assay aids in the identification of underlying genetic causes of neurological and dysmorphic disorders in children. The assay enables users to accurately detect numerous chromosomal variations at higher resolution and greater coverage than conventional methods. It has demonstrated to improve diagnostic yield by an incremental 12.5% compared to G-banded karyotyping.

ChAS Dx is a powerful, intuitive software that simplifies cytogenetic analysis, visualization, and reporting of chromosomal aberrations across the genome. ChAS Dx provides whole-genome support for CytoScan Dx Arrays with flexible parameters and data formats, as well as direct access to multiple leading external genetic databases. The advanced data analysis software is available to all CytoScan Dx customers at no additional cost.

The complete IVDR compliant CytoScan Dx Cytogenetics Suite is a sample to insight solution that includes the CytoScan Dx Array, a reagent kit, the Applied Biosystems™ GeneChip™ System 3000 Dx platform for array processing, and user-friendly ChAS Dx software.

Innovative Grid Boosting Technologies Needed to Bring Europe’s Decarbonisation Targets Within Reach, Says New Industry Report20.6.2024 09:00:00 CEST | Press release

CurrENT Europe, the industry association for European innovative grid technology companies, and economic consulting firm Compass Lexecon are releasing a new innovative grid technologies report. Grids are increasingly becoming a bottleneck. Up until now, the transition has been focused on the production side of clean energy generation, but we are now hitting the limits of our grid. The energy transition urgently needs more grid capacity. Electrical transmission and distribution network lengths across Europe need to grow by up to 50% and 60% respectively if we are to see a fully decarbonized power system by 2040. Innovative Grid Technologies (IGTs) can improve grid capacity up to 40%, generating between 100-200GW of extra capacity by 2040. Even a conservative deployment of innovative grid technologies can accelerate transmission grids expansion by 5 to 8 years and distribution grids expansion by 4 to 7 years. Installing IGTs could contribute to the need for network buildout and achieve g

INTRESO Highlights Sustainable Alternatives as EU Considers a Ban on Sulfuryl Fluoride20.6.2024 08:00:00 CEST | Press release

International Treatment Solutions (INTRESO) Group has written to the EU Commission’s Standing Committee on Biocidal Products to highlight the availability of safe, effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives to sulfuryl fluoride, ahead of a 21 June meeting which will consider a ban of the chemical for the preservation treatment of wood [PT8], and as an insecticide and acaricide for the control of insects and arachnids [PT18]. On 21 June, representatives from EU Member States will vote on a proposal to ban the use of sulfuryl fluoride, an extremely harmful synthetic greenhouse gas with a global warming potential more than 4500 times that of carbon dioxide, for these fumigation purposes. In what amounts to an effective ban, the EU is considering withdrawing approvals for the continued biocidal use of sulfuryl fluoride, due to a lack of data on the potential risks to human health posed by the chemical. INTRESO Group produces BLUEFUME™, a highly effective and environmentally sus
