ChromaCode to Host Corporate Workshop, Present New HDPCR Tick-Borne Panel Data at the ASM Clinical Virology Symposium (CVS) 2019

CARLSBAD, Calif.May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ChromaCode, Inc., a next generation molecular diagnostic company using data science to significantly enhance multiplexing capabilities on existing life science instrumentation, today announced that it will host a corporate workshop and present multiple posters during the upcoming Clinical Virology Symposium (CVS), which is hosted by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and being held May 5-8, 2019 at the Savannah Convention Center in Savannah, Georgia.

The corporate workshop will feature two global thought leaders in molecular diagnostics, Dr. David Hillyard and Dr. Glen Hansen, and will focus on the value of ChromaCode’s proprietary High Definition Polymerase Chain Reaction (HDPCR™) technology and the HDPCR™ Tick-Borne Pathogen (TBP) Panel RUO. Launched in late 2018, the TBP Panel is the Company’s first commercial test and the only available multiplex PCR test capable of simultaneously detecting nine of the most common tick-borne pathogens in a single test.

Details of the presentations include:
