The molecular diagnostics company DxNA LLC recently announced that the FDA had cleared its test for the rapid detection of coccidioidomycosis, or valley fever.
According to the company, the GeneSTAT.MDx Coccidioides test, which works with the GeneSTAT System, is performed directly on patient specimens and can produce same-day results. Currently, definitive testing for Coccidioides fungus is performed by culture in biosafety level 3 laboratories, and it can take up to 3 weeks to get results.
