Also, Trinity Biotech added that CE marking allows this product to be sold in European markets and the company would immediately begin selling this product via. its extensive distributor network in Europe and other territories. In the mean time, the company has filed for FDA approval in the USA and this is expected to be granted in the first half of 2012.

The product was developed by a dedicated research team at Trinity'sSan Diego facility and is the first of a new range of point-of-care tests to be developed. When this product is combined with its forthcoming tests for Cryptosporidium and C Difficile, Trinity would then have a full enteric panel, all of which would be CE marked by June 2012 and approved for sale in the USA by the third quarter end.
