Open-access: Screen for any genetic target of interest
Instrument accepts standard home-brew 20x TaqMan® assays for customized automated testing
No pipetting required, can be operated by a layperson
Low-cost per sample
Low manufacturing costs of consumables allows us to offer lower entry point to market
Fast turnaround time
Results in ~ 1 hr (depending on volume of sample processed)
On-demand sample processing
Instrument can process up to six samples at a time, in an asynchronous but parallel fashion.
High level of multiplexing
Tests each sample for 22 targets using standard real-time RT-PCR assays, plus 12 positive and 2 negative controls.
Increases positive hit-rate, and can be used to detect the presence of drug resistance genes.
Capable of large volume sample processing for improved sensitivity
Smart fluidics concentrates pathogens in samples up to 50 mL in volume, thereby minimizing the chances that subsampling causes a false negative result.
Detects both RNA and DNA pathogens.
High-quality nucleic acid purification removes most PCR inhibitors
Decreases chances of a false negative result
Low carbon footprint compared with conventional molecular diagnostics
Ideal for facilities short on space
Electronically records data
For interfacing with medical records and for easy retrieval of historical data (trends)
