Biocare Medical MACH4 Universal Polymer Utilized by CDC for Immunohistochemical Detection of SARS-CoV-2 in COVID-19 Caused Respiratory Infections
June 22, 2020 – Biocare Medical, a leading provider of innovative, automated immunohistochemistry (IHC) reagents, instrumentation and detection systems has been mentioned in a recent early release study by the Centers for Disease Control: Pathology and Pathogensis of SARS-CoV-2 Associated with Fatal Corona Virus Disease.
The ongoing pandemic of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has created an urgent need for new research into diagnostic testing and treatments. As a part of the public health response, the CDC Infectious Diseases Pathology Branch has been examining the histopathology and cellular localization of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which has been critical to understanding its pathogenesis.
The recent CDC study of autopsied lung tissue from fatal cases has utilized Biocare’s MACH4 Universal AP Polymer Detection along with our unique antigen retrieval buffers in order to obtain key immunohistological findings regarding the virus’s localization in the lungs.
Biocare Medical is excited to announce the use of our novel detection system MACH4 Universal AP Detection system to aid the CDC in the pathologic evaluation and cellular localization within tissues, which will be crucial in the development of therapeutic and preventative countermeasures to this global pandemic.
