FDA Clears Gen-Probe's PANTHER System For Use With APTIMA Combo 2 Assay

Gen-Probe Inc. (GPRO) Tuesday said the US Food and Drug Administration has cleared its PANTHER system, a fully automated and integrated molecular testing platform designed with the flexibility to handle a wide range of testing needs.

The PANTHER system can initially be used to test for the common sexually transmitted infections Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae with the APTIMA Combo 2 assay.

According to the company, using this system, a single operator can process 275 samples in eight hours.

Gen-Probe will begin shipments of PANTHER systems to US customers during the second quarter.
