CE Marking of Trinity Biotech's Rapid Test for Giardia
The product was developed by a dedicated research team at Trinity's San Diego facility and is the first of a new range of point-of-care tests to be successfully developed. When this product is combined with forthcoming tests for Cryptosporidium and C. difficile, Trinity will then have a full enteric panel, all of which will be CE marked by June 2012 and approved for sale in the USA by the end of quarter 3, 2012.
Commenting on the announcement, Trinity Biotech's CEO Mr. Ronan O'Caoimh said, 'We are delighted to announce the CE marking of our new Uni-GoldTM Giardia Test. The product has also been submitted for FDA approval, which we expect to receive in the coming months. In mid-2010, we announced that Trinity was embarking upon an ambitious program to develop a new range of rapid point-of-care products. This is the first of these new products to be launched. Development of the other products in the range at our San Diego facility is progressing very well. Cryptosporidium and C. Difficile, which will complete our enteric panel, will be launched by June 2012 and these will be joined by new syphilis, strep pneumonia and HSV products by the end of the year.'
