MicroGen Diagnostics, the industry leader in providing next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) for clinical diagnostics, announces its entry into oral microbial diagnostics with the PerioDX test. PerioDX is the first commercially available saliva-based periodontal test to combine quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and NGS technology for comprehensive DNA diagnostic results. PerioDX identifies 17 antibiotic resistance genes and all clinically relevant microbes in a sample,1 thereby assisting clinicians both with treatment choices and promoting antimicrobial stewardship.

New variants continue to emerge rapidly around the globe, causing sequencing efforts at health departments and universities to surveil a small portion of the population and, in some cases, limit their sequencing efforts to breakthrough cases. MicroGenDX is proud to offer the first commercially available, quick-turnaround, economical and accurate option for SARS-CoV-2 whole genome sequencing to combat the spread of emerging variants and gain a better understanding of the epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2.

Disruptive new multicenter research has determined that next generation sequencing (NGS) can reliably predict treatment failure due to periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). MicroGenDX, the High Complexity Laboratory utilized in the study, is upending outdated approaches to infection detection, instead relying on the most up-to-date technologies to not only determine that an infection is present, but to identify the exact micro-organism(s) involved.
