DiaCarta provides highly sensitive and advanced technologies that will change the landscape of precision medicine and molecular diagnostics by impacting healthcare treatment plans and the well-being of individuals around the world.
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.

DiaCarta Inc., a precision molecular diagnostics company and leading developer of novel oncology tests using liquid biopsy today announced that its new QuantiVirus™ SARS-CoV-2 Variant Detection Test received the CE/IVD marking and therefore, can now be commercialized within the EU and rest of the world. This new test screens for the SARS-CoV-2 virus and simultaneously identifies and differentiates all the new mutating COVID 19 variants including the Alpha (UK), Beta (S. Africa), Gamma (Brazil), Delta (India), Delta Plus (India), Epsilon (California) and the Kappa (India) variants.

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.
