Tissue and eye banks are reducing discards and improving safety with Miriad rapid tests
The Miriad triple product has helped our organization perform preliminary screening of HIV and hepatitis. We are using these results to make initial determination of eligibility for donation. It also has proven to be beneficial as a safety measure for our technicians.Kristen McCoy
RAPID RESULTS YOU CAN BANK ON

- Transportation, storage, and disposal costs lost on ineligible tissue
- Risks to technicians working with sharps

Miriad is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Miriad tests use MedMira’s patented Rapid Vertical Flow Technology, allowing for the analysis of whole blood specimens in addition to serum and plasma. Additionally, research demonstrates that MedMira’s rapid vertical testing closely matches the performance of much more complicated enzyme immunoassay tests. This technology has shown 98% concordance with more complex and traditional lab-based assays when testing research specimens in the laboratory.
