Automated, rapid and sensitive pathogen detection
LexaGene is developing a genetic analyzer for automated pathogen detection that is designed to be placed at the site of sample collection – to quickly detect multiple pathogens at once with sensitivity and specificity – and return results in about 1 hour.
The LX Genetic Analyzer is being designed for syndromic testing in veterinary diagnostics and human clinical diagnostics, as well as food safety testing, water quality monitoring, and other markets that need critical answers in less time.
The technology’s open-access feature allows researchers in biotech, pharma, and academic laboratories to customize their testing, whether it is to detect rare infectious diseases, screen for cancer, or perform mRNA expression profiling.
The open-access feature also makes the system uniquely poised to become a critical part of preventing the spread of emerging strains of new infectious diseases to help avert a pandemic.
