Business Name: Quidel Corporation
Business Genre:
Business Description:

Diagnostic company specializing in automated manufacturing and development of immunoassays, molecular assays and monoclonal antibodies [1]

City: San Diego
State: CA
Country: USA
Data/Evidence of Effectiveness: The limit of detection (LoD) is 8.00E-01 genomic RNA copies/µL. The EUA for this test was expanded so that it can be run on multiple thermocyclers. It also recieves a CE mark, which means that it is not constricted thermocycler platform [4-5]
Complimentary Products Needed to Perform Test: bioMerieux NucliSENS® easyMAG® or EMAG systems for extraction; ABI 7500 Fast Dx for amplification and detection; Any of the following thermocyclers: Applied Biosystems® 7500 Fast Dx, Applied Biosystems 7500 Standard, QuantStudioTM Real-Time PCR Instrument, Roche LightCycler® 480, BioRad CFX96 Touch, or Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q; 96 well PCR plate; VTM and swabs; Quiagen RNA extraction kit [2,4]
Setting of Care: authorized laboratories in patient settings [2]
Current Status / Clinical Development Stage / Expected Milestones: Not FDA cleared/approved; Expanded EUA and received CE mark [2,5]
Funding & Ownership : Owned by investors [1]
Business Model: sale of lateral flow devices (infectious diseases & reproductive health) (QuickVue), immunoassays (Sofia, Triage), micro-titer production for bone markets (MicroVue), direct fluorescent antibodies, molecular diagnostics (AmpliVue), and DHI cell culture (ELVIS, Copan) [1]
History & Origins : Company has a strong hold of the Point-of-Care diagnostic testing market (11% CAGR before acquiring Triage) It’s R&D department has received over 30 FDA clearances. Sofia and Triage offers health providers to test and treat in one office visit.
