Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland® Discusses a Better Solution for Diagnostic Testing with XCR Diagnostics

 In News

Los Angeles, CA – October 23, 2018— Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Mark Powelson of XCR Diagnostics to discuss  their game-changing molecular diagnostic exams offering better testing solutions for clinicians.

Xtreme Chain Reaction is  a novel, broad-based DNA/RNA amplification technology.  It is believed that tests using XCR® can achieve actionable results in 7-10 minutes allowing clinicians to make more timely treatment decisions.

“Over the years, we’ve had testing solutions that take some period of time,” says Powelson. “When physicians make diagnosis, about 70 to 80 percent of their diagnostic tool is in laboratory testing, so it’s very important to get those results back to the patients as quickly as possible because we want to affect that patient’s well-being. As a result, what used to take hours and days, it now takes about seven minutes.”

XCR Diagnostics believes delivering molecular diagnostics for the masses with a more efficient nucleic acid  amplifying chemistry, surpassing current  systems. Their tests can be used for infectious disease testing, women’s health, sexual healthy, oncology testing and personalized medicine/genetic testing. The company offers the flexibility and speed to make low cost, near-patient and field-based diagnostic testing an everyday occurrence.

“Being able to accurately get important test results in a matter of minutes changes the medical landscape,” says J.L. Haber, Vice President of Programming. “Patients can now get diagnosed and treated earlier, potentially saving a number of lives.”
