Roche Acquires IQuum Laboratory-in-a-tube System
Roche has acquired IQuum, Inc. based in Marlborough, Massachusetts, USA. IQuum is a privately held company focused on developing point of care offerings for the molecular diagnostics market.
The acquisition will provide Roche with access to IQuum’s Laboratory-in-a-tube (Liat™) System, which enables healthcare workers to perform rapid molecular diagnostic testing in a point of care setting, closer to patients and with minimal training. The Liat™ Analyzer and Liat™ Influenza A/B Assay, the first test available for use on the system, produce reliable and accurate lab-like results and are CE marked and FDA cleared.
Once the transaction is complete, IQuum will be integrated into Roche Molecular Diagnostics
