Overview


Minagene's proprietary SES protocol concurrently isolates and
identifies causative organisms from bilateral ocular swabs, streamlining diagnosis of bacterial conjunctivitis, blepharitis,
keratitis and endophthalmitis. Deep sequencing with
bioinformatic analyses achieve comprehensive pathogen
detection from a single specimen.


Methodology



The Syndrome Evaluation System


The Syndrome Evaluation System (SES) is a patented technology used for rapid multiplex amplification and accurate identification of virulence-associated genes of causative agents or organisms. This advanced platform surpasses conventional diagnostic tests by providing fast and precise results, especially when organisms are challenging to cultivate or locate. Currently available diagnostic technologies for detecting infections are inadequate, often failing to detect early stages of illness and delaying specific therapy in critical cases, which can lead to functional loss or even loss of life.



The SES amplifies genes


The SES amplifies genes, enhancing the sensitivity of the test. The re-naturation of the amplified signature gene to its chemically identified complementary gene sequence on the SES further improves accuracy.



Key Highlights of Minagene's Eye Infections Test


Higher Accuracy


Detects a greater number of cases compared to conventional methods


Reduction in Testing and Investigations


Avoids the need for multiple testing and unnecessary investigations, leading to cost savings.
Reduces the duration of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU) and associated costs.


Comprehensive Pathogen Detection


– Detects DNA of various pathogens, including fungi, viruses, parasites, and bacteria, in a single test.


-Capable of detecting both unimicrobial and polymicrobial infections.


Efficient Rule-in or Rule-out


Helps in confirming or excluding the presence of infections
