ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ViveBio, a leader in biological specimen stabilization technologies, announced today the results of a study presented at the HEP DART conference held in Wailea, Hawaii.  The study, which was conducted by ZeptoMetrix, combined their SeroDetect quality control panels with the ViveST matrix technology to produce dried, shelf stable quality controls, which could be rehydrated on demand and tested in a commercially available, FDA cleared immunodiagnostic system.

"The results of this preliminary study support our strategy to introduce a technology platform that allows IVD manufacturers and suppliers to eliminate cold chain logistics for control and calibration material," said Timothy W. Murray, president of ViveBio. "The company has previously demonstrated the utility of the ViveST technology with molecular diagnostic controls, including dried, shelf stable run controls for CLIA-waived Point of Care systems.  This study now extends our work in the field to include serological controls and calibration sets, which represents a significant market opportunity worldwide.  In 2016 we plan to launch our new single use, shelf stable, control delivery device that is compatible with both molecular and non-molecular material."

End users and manufacturers in developed healthcare markets benefit from the elimination of cold chain logistics and refrigerated storage upon delivery.  Governments and health systems in resource limited healthcare markets are faced with the challenge of implementing diagnostic quality assurance schemes were cold chain logistics are sparse or non existent.  "We're very excited about the results of this preliminary study which show the ViveST technology can be combined with ZeptoMetrix serological controls to create a solution for laboratories throughout the world," added Michael Hershfield, vice president, sales and marketing for ZeptoMetrix.  "Providing customers with a dried, shelf-stable quality control panel can free them from costly cold chain logistics and expand the reach of diagnostic testing."
