SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CODX), a molecular diagnostics company with a unique, patented platform for the development of diagnostic tests and that recently reported it had received a CE marking for its COVID-19 coronavirus assay, announced today that it has been requested to speak at the 27th Annual Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference, held March 1-4, 2020 in San Francisco, California.

The Molecular Med Tri-Con is presented by the Cambridge Healthtech Institute and regarded as the most comprehensive, industry-leading event covering precision medicine and diagnostics today. Following an introduction by Duncan MacCannell, CSO of the Office of Advanced Molecular Detection, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Company CEO Dwight Egan will deliver the presentation, titled “COVID-19 Coronavirus Emergency Response Test Development Utilizing Co-Diagnostics CoPrimer™ Technology,” on March 3 at 11:10 am.

Mr. Egan remarked, “Following the first reported COVID-19 deaths in the US and the Food and Drug Administration’s change in policy to expedite availability of tests, discussing Co-Diagnostics’ role in addressing the coronavirus epidemic with such a highly regarded audience couldn’t be more timely. In the space of about a month, our CoPrimer technology allowed us to design, develop, receive regulatory approval for, and begin marketing detection tools to aid in stemming the tide of this fast-spreading disease.

Co-Diagnostics also feels confident that this response is one that could be replicated whenever needed, as we pursue our mandate of making molecular diagnostic solutions accessible to all nations of the world, in addition to quickly providing updated versions of our COVID-19 test in the event of a mutation.”
