About IDEXX

IDEXX was incorporated in Delaware in 1983. We develop, manufacture, and distribute products and provide services primarily for the companion animal veterinary, livestock and poultry, dairy and water testing markets. We also sell a line of portable electrolytes and blood gas analyzers for the human point-of-care medical diagnostics market. Our primary products and services are:

  • Point-of-care veterinary diagnostic products, comprised of instruments, consumables, and rapid assay test kits.
  • Veterinary reference laboratory diagnostic and consulting services.
  • Practice management and diagnostic imaging systems and services used by veterinarians.
  • Health monitoring, biological materials testing, laboratory diagnostic instruments, and services used by the biomedical research community.
  • Products that test water for certain microbiological contaminants.
  • Point-of-care electrolytes and blood gas analyzers used in the human point-of-care medical diagnostics market.

IDEXX operates primarily through three business segments:

  • Companion Animal Group (“CAG”) – Diagnostic and information management-based products and services for the veterinary market.
  • Water quality products (“Water”) – Design, development, manufacture, and distribution of products used in the detection of various microbiological parameters in water.
  • Livestock, Poultry and Dairy (“LPD”) – Diagnostic products and services for livestock and poultry health and to ensure the quality and safety of milk and food, and improve producer efficiency.
  • The other operating segment combines and presents products for the human point-of-care medical diagnostics market (“OPTI Medical”) with our out-licensing arrangements.

OPTI SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test

Environment-Award-newsOPTI Medical Systems has received US FDA Emergency Use Authorization and CE mark for its OPTI SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test for detection of the virus causing COVID-19.
The OPTI SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test is based on real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), which provides detection of the viral RNA in the sample. The test can be used on both individual samples as well as in pools of 5 samples for screening purposes. It is designed for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA extracted from nasopharyngeal swabs, oropharyngeal swabs, and other upper respiratory sample types.

A complete serology-based testing solution

  • Reduces waiting time with results in 90 minutes.
  • Limits the need for validation due to an extensive validation data report.
  • Relies on technical support from a market leader in ELISA testing.
  • Detects total antibodies for broad sensitivity.
  • Makes lab setup easy when ELISA readers and washers are utilized for a complete testing solution

Performance

  • Performance of the OPTI SARS-COV-2 Total Antibody Test was validated extensively using a large sample set. Results demonstrated diagnostic sensitivity of 96.1% (n = 155) ≥ 15 days after symptom onset and 96.8% (n = 201) ≥ 15 days after PCR-positive result. The diagnostic specificity of the test was 98.0% (n = 405).
  • IDEXX Laboratories, the parent of OPTI Medical Systems, has extensive expertise in ELISA development and manufacturing.

Accurate and more reliable—no instrument calibration required

The Mic qPCR Cycler utilizes a unique spinning aluminum rotor which ensures even temperature
distribution across samples so no calibration requirements are necessary. This produces more accurate results in comparison to other block-based cyclers that are not heated and cooled consistently which can cause greater variability across the block.

Plug and play

  • Bluetooth compatible – can connect up to 10 instruments to one computer
  • Pre-programmed analysis settings—minimal installation needs
  • Validated on all IDEXX RealPCR assays, and the OPTI SARS-CoV-2-RT-PCR test
