Co-Diagnostics Inc Announces Positive Results from Co-Primers™ Technology in Multiplex Tests for SNP Detection

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CODX) (“Co-Diagnostics” or the “Company”), a molecular diagnostics company with a unique, proprietary platform for the development of diagnostic tests, announced today that ongoing research and development activities of the Company’s Co-Primer™ platform technology has yielded positive results in demonstrating the capabilities of Co-Primers in multiplex tests for SNP detection.

The Company will utilize its proprietary design software and patent-pending Co-Primer technology to provide molecular testing solutions for use by customers. These include enterprise clients, specifically those interested in testing for targeted gene sequences in multiplexed reactions, in the research, infectious diseases, agricultural, ranching, and food production industries, as well as large clinical laboratories. The above industries rely upon molecular testing for a variety of applications, ranging from testing for harmful bacteria or vector-borne diseases, liquid biopsy applications, and developing in-house diagnostics to assist with infectious disease testing. Customers in the latter category would be able to use the technology to design and verify their own laboratory developed tests (“LDTs”).

Co-Diagnostics CEO Dwight Egan commented: “The unique properties of Co-Primers make them ideally suited for a variety of applications where sensitivity is the key to optimal results, including multiplexing several targets, enhanced SNP detection, and rare allele enrichment for next-gen sequencing. Co-Diagnostics is excited to provide these groundbreaking technical advances to the worldwide molecular testing market.”
