FDA Clearance for FluChip-8G Influenza A+B Assay Identifying Seasonal and Non-Seasonal Flu
InDevR Inc. have received 510(k) market clearance for their FluChip-8G Influenza A+B Assay from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
FluChip-8G is the first cleared influenza diagnostic capable of positively characterizing a wide variety of viruses as “non-seasonal” and characterizing seasonal viruses in a single multiplexed assay with same-day results.
The in vitro diagnostic assay was developed for the qualitative detection and differentiation of seasonal and non-seasonal influenza A viruses as well as the genetic lineage of influenza B viruses. Importantly, the assay is capable of detecting a wide variety of non-seasonal influenza A viruses and positively identifying them as “non-seasonal”, including subtypes with recognized pandemic potential such as H7N9 and H5N1. The open platform molecular diagnostic system consists of a low-density microarray and reagent kit, microarray imaging system, and custom software. The assay is based on multiplexed RT-PCR amplification of whole influenza gene segments in combination with detection on a microarray and subsequent AI-based pattern-recognition for automated interpretation.
