Hardy Diagnostics Now Offers the BioCode® MDx-3000


Hardy Diagnostics, a leader in manufactured and distributed microbiology products, is pleased to announce it is now the exclusive distributor for the United States and its territories of the BioCode® MDx-3000, an automated high throughput multiplex molecular diagnostic system. The MDx-3000 is developed by Applied BioCode, an IVD manufacturer that designs, develops, and commercializes multiplex testing products. "Applied BioCode is thrilled to partner with Hardy Diagnostics," said Winston Ho, President of Applied BioCode. "We look forward to working with the Hardy Diagnostics team to expand our reach in hospitals and reference laboratories in the US."

The MDx-3000 Molecular System utilizes a 96-well microplate format to carry out multiplex PCR amplification, hybridization/target capture, and detection steps of molecular testing. Laboratories can process up to 188 patient samples in an 8-hour shift. Additionally, up to three different assay panels, which have the same protocols, can be run on the system at the same time. Along with a number of other advantages designed to optimize laboratory workflow. The system’s data management automation includes Laboratory Information System (LIS) connectivity.

The MDx-3000 Molecular System offers:

  • Patented Barcoded Magnetic Bead Technology with up to 4,096 different digital codes
  • FDA 510(k) Cleared Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel  
  • FDA 510(k) Cleared Respiratory Pathogen Panel
  • EUA authorized SARS-CoV-2 Assay* for automation of up to 564 individual samples in a day and 2,820 samples a day by pooled testing
  • EUA authorized SARS-CoV-2 Flu Plus Assay**
  • User Defined Mode supports the use of Laboratory Developed Tests
