Scienion, Grenier Bio-One Collaborate on Rapid Multiplex Dx for Infectious Disease

European firms Scienion and Grenier Bio-One announced a collaboration to co-develop rapid, multiplexed diagnostic tests.

The partners said in a statement they would develop new tests for human pathogens that will yield test results within 75 minutes.

The deal brings together Scienion's sciFlexarrayer liquid handling technology and Grenier's PCR-based Genspeed pathogen detection platform. Kremsm√ľnster, Austria-based Grenier has already launched a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus test, the Genspeed MRSA.

The agreement is the latest in a string of technology partnerships for Berlin-based Scienion this year. In September, the firm partnered with Australian firm Axxin to develop a multiplexed microarray analysis system. In July, it partnered with Australian reagent maker Anteo Technologies to improve the shelf life of protein microarrays. And in June, Scienion agreed to integrate sciFlexarrayer into QuantuMDx's nanowire array technology and commercialize the biosensor.
