Patent
Roche Molecular Systems | Date: 2016-10-13

The present invention relates to a method for amplifying and detecting a target nucleic acid of HCV in a sample, wherein an amplification of the nucleic acids in said sample is carried out. This amplification involves a polymerase, primers for generating an amplicon and at least two detectable probes specific for different sequence portions of said amplicon. Detection of the obtained amplicon is brought about by detecting hybridization of the probes mentioned above to said different sequence portions of the amplicon. The invention further provides reaction mixtures and kits for amplifying and detecting a target nucleic acid of HCV involving the use of at least two detectable probes specific for different sequence portions of an amplicon.

An informatics platform provides an architecture to integrate information from relevant patient information systems. The informatics platform may include: a workflow tool that can be used to prepare and review information at multi-disciplinary board meetings; a visual timeline of patient events; a search engine to search for patients with specific attributes; a graphing tool that can display disparate clinical variables in a single chart; a virtual PinBoard for users to identify relevant patient information for board meetings; an image viewing application that can provide for comparison of images from different information systems; structured reporting functionality that incorporates system aggregated patient information and board recommendations; an application interface that integrates clinically relevant tools to provide patient specific references; a collaboration interface that facilitates communication of patient specific information and documents the discussion threads as independent reference points; and a default display of relevant patient information customized for each clinical specialty.


Methods, compositions, and reaction mixtures are provided for identifying a T cell receptor (TCR) and an epitope peptide that specifically binds the TCR. Methods, compositions, and reaction mixtures are also provided for identifying a plurality of T cell receptors and corresponding epitope peptides that specifically bind the T cell receptors. In some cases, the plurality of T cell receptors and corresponding epitope peptides can be identified in a highly parallel manner.
