  • InflammaDry MMP-9 Test
    Quidel Eye Health’s, InflammaDry MMP-9 Test an in-office, rapid, lateral-flow based, CLIA waived product utilizing a tear sample to aid in the diagnosis of ocular surface disease. InflammaDry detects elevated levels of MMP-9, a key biomarker of dry eye....

  • According to the 2017 TFOS DEWS II Report, dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the ocular surface characterized by a loss of homeostasis of the tear film, and accompanied by ocular symptoms, in which tear film instability and hyperosmolarity, ocular surface inflammation and damage, and neurosensory abnormalities play etiological roles. The lack of correlation between clinical signs and symptoms of dry eye disease makes diagnosing and treating patients a challenge. Often times, inflammation is present before the clinical signs of dry eye. InflammaDry is the first rapid, in-office CLIA-waived test that detects elevated levels of MMP-9, an inflammatory marker that is consistently elevated in the tears of patients with dry eye disease. Other dry eye tests only measure tear production and stability. InflammaDry accurately identifies patients with dry eye allowing for optimal treatment methods and better quality of life.

  • Acute conjunctivitis affects nearly 6.9 million Americans each year. Approximately 50% of cases are misdiagnosed which could result in significant morbidity in patients. Even though viral conjunctivitis is much more commonly seen than bacterial conjunctivitis, at least 60% of conjunctivitis cases are prescribed antibiotics. At Quidel, we believe that kids should not be prescribed antibiotics when they don’t need them.
