SuperbDNA™ technology uses branched DNA to qualitatively or quantitatively measure the presence of target DNA or RNA. Unlike PCR or RT-PCR, SuperbDNA™ technology does not amplify the DNA or RNA in the samples, rather amplifies the signals for detection. Because the amplified signal is proportional to the levels of the target (DNA or RNA) in the samples, the latter is easy to be quantified with a standard curve. SuperbDNA™ technology has been used in FDA-approved clinical applications, including prognosis and monitoring of patients with viral diseases.
Former AstraZeneca Personalized Healthcare Strategy Leader Named Senior Vice President of Companion Diagnostics at DiaCarta
DiaCarta Inc., a precision molecular diagnostics company and leading developer of novel oncology tests using liquid biopsy, today announced the appointment of Hongjun “Harry” Yang, Ph.D., former Executive Personalized Healthcare Strategy Leader at AstraZeneca, as Senior Vice President of Companion Diagnostics (CDx) at DiaCarta.
DiaCarta Inc., a precision molecular diagnostics company and leading developer of novel oncology tests using liquid biopsy today announced the publication of a study entitled “A Rapid SARS-CoV-2 Variant Detection by Molecular-Clamping Based RT-qPCR” in MedRxiV that demonstrates the enhanced sensitivity and specificity using its proprietary XNA based Molecular Clamping Technology that uses innovative synthetic Xenonucleic acid molecular oligomers (XNA) that hybridize with target wild-type DNA sequences, acting as molecular clamps, to enable the accurate amplification of mutant sequences only, using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reactions (qPCR).

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a powerful tool that has seen a fast increase in clinical labs although only a few NGS tests have been approved by the FDA. However, there have been a lot of debate on if variants from NGS sequencing should be confirmed either by Sanger sequencing, the gold standard, or other techniques such as quantitative PCR, or the combination, or other methods.
