MissionIRNewsBreaks – LexaGene Holdings Inc. (TSX.V: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF) to Host Private Seminar to Present MiQLab Data from Recent Study

LexaGene Holdings (TSX.V: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF), a molecular diagnostics company that develops fully automated rapid pathogen detection systems, announced that it will host a private event featuring Dr. Shelley Rankin, a professor of microbiology at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet). Attended by a select group of veterinarians, the private seminar will feature data compiled by Rankin based on her studies evaluating the use of LexaGene’s MiQLab to detect Staphylococcus in specimens gathered from canine skin infections. The event will also include information regarding the use of molecular diagnostics in veterinary medicine as well as analytical and clinical data generated using LexaGene’s MiQLab system. The studies performed by Rankin and LexaGene were designed to analyze and evaluate the performance of LexaGene’s MiQLab to detect common bacterial pathogens encountered in veterinary medicine. To conduct the analytical studies and clinical urine study, MiQLabs were equipped with LexaGene’s MiQLab(TM) Bacterial and AMR Test. The test is designed to screen for 7 common bacterial pathogens and 13 different antimicrobial resistance factors. Rankin noted that LexaGene’s MiQLab returns a molecular analysis on specimens in a fraction of the time it takes for culture to return results, enabling veterinarians to quickly identify infection and offer pet owners evidence-based treatment options. “Our goal has always been to have the MiQLab generate high-quality data inside veterinary clinics where veterinarians can use this data to guide treatment decisions,” said LexaGene CEO and founder Jack Regan in the press release. “These data prove we have achieved this goal. Our sales team will be using these data to secure sales in the veterinary market, which has relatively few options for quality in-hospital pathogen testing.” To view the full press release, visit About LexaGene Holdings Inc.  LexaGene is a molecular diagnostics company that develops molecular diagnostic systems for pathogen detection and genetic testing for other molecular markers for onsite rapid testing in veterinary diagnostics and food safety, and for use in open-access markets such as clinical research, agricultural testing and biodefense.
