SAN DIEGO, July 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesa Biotech Inc. is a privately-held, molecular diagnostic company that has developed the Acculatm System, an affordable, sample-to-answer, CLIA-waived PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing platform designed specifically for point-of-care (POC) infectious disease diagnosis. Today, Mesa Biotech announced it will present performance comparisons of its visually read PCR testing platform with other FDA-cleared molecular tests for influenza A/B and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) assays. The lecture will take place on August 6, 2019 at 1:00 pm in theater 3 of the exhibit hall at the 71st American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo in Anaheim, CA.

"Antiviral drug treatments are becoming increasingly popular and more widely used. The antivirals work best when taken within 48 hours of symptom onset, therefore highly accurate, POC testing is crucial for healthcare professionals to achieve rapid and accurate confirmation of the infection to enable the best patient outcome," said Hong Cai, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mesa Biotech, Inc.

Stephen Young, PH.D., Director of Research and Clinical Trials at TriCore Reference Laboratory will present the session titled 'Sample-to-answer, CLIA-waived PCR System with Visually Read Results for POC: Comparative Flu and RSV Detection Analysis with Other FDA-cleared Molecular POC Assays'. The presentation will provide a technology overview and performance characteristics of the visually interpreted, CLIA-waived Accula System that possesses the simplicity, convenience and procedural familiarity of traditional POC rapid immunoassays. Additionally, Dr. Young will provide insight on the user experience with the Accula System.
