LexaGene Holdings (TSXV: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF), a molecular diagnostics company that develops fully automated rapid pathogen detection systems, today announced that it has successfully configured a MiQLab(TM) system to detect mutant sequences unique to the United Kingdom (“UK, B.1.1.7”) 1 and South African (“SA, B.1.351”) 2 variants of SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen that causes COVID-19. “Just three weeks ago, we designed assays to detect the UK and SA variants to demonstrate proof-of-principle that these assays could be quickly ported onto the MiQLab,” said Dr. Jack Regan, LexaGene’s CEO and founder. “After just two full work days of having these reagents in-house, we verified our MiQLab could detect mutations associated with these variants. With proper FDA approvals, these tests could quickly be sent to MiQLabs operating at the point-of-care for faster detection, which would likely improve containment efforts for the spread of these new variants.”
