Molecular Testing Labs (Molecular) is one of the participants and collaborators with Social & Scientific Systems (SSS) in conducting a large-scale clinical study for the Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). Molecular will participate in developing a protocol and conducting a study to determine the performance of a molecular point-of care-device to detect specific sexually transmitted infections (STIs) known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG), Trichomonas vaginalis (TV), and Chlamydia trachomatis (CT). In evaluating the performance of the device, the final results will compare to predicate tests previously approved by the FDA.
Molecular is at the forefront of innovation by successfully pioneering effective technology to detect STIs with a dried blood collection kit for the direct-to-consumer at-home testing market. Molecular’s mission is to empower individuals to be able to take charge of their lives by knowing the status of their sexual health. Collaboration with SSS furthers Molecular’s mission to study, innovate and provide avenues to consumers for information about their health and empower them to make proper and timely decisions.
