The European Commission’s approval of BioMarin’s novel gene therapy for severe hemophilia A has paved the way for ARUP’s AAV5 DetectCDx™ Kit to become the first ARUP-developed test used in Europe.
Ryan Metcalf, MD, CQA(ASQ), section chief of Transfusion Medicine at ARUP and University of Utah Health, at ARUP Blood Services, a collection site for an ARUP/University of Utah Health study to determine whether convalescent plasma is an effective treatment for COVID-19.
Based on data from 21,916 participants in 33 studies, the Association for the Advancement of Blood and Biotherapies (AABB) has issued guidelines for use of convalescent plasma in COVID-19 treatment.
In her lab at the University of Utah, Allison Carey, MD, PhD, is using a molecular barcoding approach she developed to identify the genes that allow some strains of Mycobacterium avium to establish chronic infections and resist treatment with antibiotics.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has awarded Medical Director Allison Carey, MD, PhD, $1.5 million over five years to fund her groundbreaking research.
NanoSpot.ai’s agreement with the Greek company Opto enables the commercialization and distribution in Europe of NanoSpot.ai’s line of antibody tests, including the SARS-CoV-2 test pictured here.

ARUP Consult®, a free source of laboratory testing information for clinicians, released several new and updated resources in August.
ARUP Consult has released several new and updated resources for clinicians, including testing topics on kidney evaluation, gestational trophoblastic disease, and poliovirus.
The CDC recently confirmed the first U.S. case of polio since 2013, which has raised concerns about the virus. New ARUP Consult resources inform clinicians about lab testing for poliovirus.
These images depict the distinct genetic profiles found in patients with pathogenic germline DDX41 variants and variants of unknown significance (VUSs).
New research published in Blood sheds light on diagnosis, disease characteristics, and prognoses for inherited hematologic malignancies associated with DDX41 germline variants.
Patricia Slev, PhD, section chief of Immunology at ARUP Laboratories, coauthored a newly published study that looked at COVID-19-related risks facing emergency department workers early in the pandemic.
A new study for which ARUP provided COVID-19 testing and expertise found that emergency department workers early in the pandemic faced the highest risk of infection from community spread.
