BioMedNewsBreaks – XPhyto Therapeutics Corp. (CSE: XPHY) (OTCQB: XPHYF) (FSE: 4XT) Announces Ability to Speed Up COVID-19 Testing Using PCR Equipment

February 11, 2021 10:19:59

XPhyto Therapeutics (CSE: XPHY) (OTCQB: XPHYF) (FSE: 4XT), a bioscience accelerator at the leading-edge of the life science industry, has partnered with a German diagnostics firm to become a leader in commercializing breakthrough tech in rapid, definitive testing for COVID-19 in strategic and convenient point-of-care (“POC”) settings. A recent article noted that, using standard polymerase chain reaction (“PCR”) equipment, XPhyto has the ability to significantly speed up testing for COVID-19. The equipment is commonly found in most analytical laboratories as well as hospitals and a range of POC settings. The announcement was based on the successful trial validation results of XPhyto’s proprietary rapid PCR test kit, developed in collaboration with Stuttgard-based 3a-Diagnostics GmbH. The company plans on initially applying for regulatory approval in Germany while also preparing for a commercial launch of its product early this year. The article reported that faster definitive diagnostic processes were especially urgent as the go-to rapid antigen testing has fallen out of favor; the article also called PCR the gold standard for coronavirus testing because of its reliability for generating accurate results. “XPhyto’s announcement attests to the completion of successful validation trials, which demonstrated diagnostic-level sensitivity and specificity for the test kit,” the article stated. “However, it is not the high degree of accuracy that really sets the test apart; instead, it is the ability to shorten testing turnaround times from at least a few hours to as little as 25 minutes. . . .XPhyto’s kit only requires a single PCR cycle which is complete in 20 minutes, while most PCR test systems require at least an hour — and sometimes several — to complete a mult-step viral RNA amplification process. XPhyto’s test kit also requires significantly less non-PCR laboratory processing time, including labour. Furthermore, it employs reagents that are readily available.”
