Interview: adapting to change with Takara Bio
Clinical laboratories that develop their own tests must be able to change the composition of their syndromic panels easily and cost-effectively. The SmartChip Real-Time PCR System provides flexibility and cost savings to address these challenges and help labs drive innovation.
BioExcel Diagnostics is a full-service CLIA- and CAP-accredited high-complexity laboratory that aims to create affordable, accurate, clinically relevant molecular diagnostic testing solutions to mitigate inefficiencies seen in patient care. Using the SmartChip system, BioExcel Diagnostics has developed and validated infectious disease panels to detect a unique combination of targets for common diseases.
Dr. Mehdi Dehghani, a 20-year veteran in molecular diagnostics, is President and Clinical Lab Director of BioExcel Diagnostics. He has deep expertise in assay design, panel design, and laboratory instrumentation and a passion for creating high-quality, affordable molecular diagnostic testing.
In this interview, Dr. Dehghani discusses the challenges his company faces when developing a new test and how the customizable, nano-scale nature of the SmartChip system allows him to develop comprehensive and scalable high-quality tests while keeping costs down.
