READ: LexaGene is enabling faster, easier pathogen detection

The firm is getting ready to widely launch its LX2 Genetic Analyzer to the veterinary industry and other underserved markets valued at an estimated US$40 billion. The instrument is the first fully-automated pathogen detection platform for use in diagnostics and sample analysis.

Its key feature is its open access nature that allows end users to customize the instrument to target any pathogen of interest. The process is as simple as collecting a sample, loading it into the instrument using a preparation cartridge and pressing “go.” The instrument is able to process multiple samples at a time, returning results within around one hour.

Currently, the main markets being targeted by LexaGene are the vast and underserved veterinary health and food safety industries, but the customizable nature of the technology means that it is applicable to any type of diagnostic industry.

In late morning trade, LexaGene shares slipped 1% to hit C$0.50.
