Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980. The investigation concerns whether Meridian and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices. On March 24, 2016, Meridian announced the acquisition of Magellan Biosciences, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary Magellan Diagnostics, Inc. (together "Magellan"). Magellan provides point-of-care lead testing systems for the testing of blood to diagnose lead poisoning in children and adults. On May 17, 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") issued a press release "warning Americans that certain lead tests manufactured by Magellan Diagnostics may provide inaccurate results. "  On this news, Meridian's share price fell $1.30, or 8.81%, to close at $13.45 on May 17, 2017.

Beacon Analytical Systems

Beacon Develops immunodiagnostic kits for environmental & food/feed testing markets


Kjaya is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Semi-Autonomous Adaptive Neural and Genetic Segmentation of Medical Images. Their Phase I project will implement a physician-assisted, real-time adaptive system for the segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. Medical image segmentation seeks to change the representation of an anatomical structure, making it more easily analyzed. Because of the extreme variability of these structures in biological systems, current idiosyncratic manual methods currently in use are tedious, time consuming, and error prone. Image segmentation cannot in general be programmatically solved. The proposed system is a Neural Network (NN) based adaptation of the individual data using parallel Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and coupled with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based adaptation across GPU cores. The system will build a diagnostically useful segmentation of the anatomical feature within seconds from an area of interest outlined by a physician using a Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. Fast growth in medical imaging overwhelms available diagnosticians. An intuitive and inexpensive system to quickly and accurately deliver diagnostic relevant segmentation of medical images offers tremendous commercial value. Currently, each scan requires approximately 50 minutes of manual preparation. The diagnosis and treatment of an estimated 20 percent of diseases benefit from medical imaging. Newer scanning technologies have increased in resolution, but such techniques have not made segmenting easier or faster. The proposed method will enable more diagnostics to be done with the quality controlled directly by physicians.
