Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced a highly automated, real-time PCR solution designed to analyse up to 6000 samples in a single day to meet increasing global demand for COVID-19 testing.
Digital PCR (dPCR) is the latest standard for absolute quantification of nucleic acids without the need for a DNA calibrator.
A portable, easy-to-use, point-of-care diagnostic system for COVID-19 can deliver patients their test results around one hour from the time of their nasal swab.
AirClean Systems AC600 Series PCR Workstations combine ISO 5 HEPA-filtered air with UV light irradiation for a useful DNA/RNA manipulation and amplification work area.
The high sensitivity of Bio-Rad's SARS-CoV-2 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) test kit makes it well suited to screening upper respiratory samples in patients with a low viral load, including individuals in the early stages of infection as compared to classical quantitative PCR tests.
The PCR assay workflow includes enrichment media, ready-to-use PCR reagents and protocols, and instrumentation for sample preparation and PCR, as well as easy-to-use software for instant result interpretation.
The Air Science PCR laminar flow cabinet employs Air Science Multiplex HEPA filtration technology to create a safe, energy-efficient contaminant-free environment. It is suitable for use with non-hazardous contaminants and when flexible access to the instrumentation in the cabinet is required.
Early detection and diagnosis are essential to reduce the prevalence of infectious diseases and to prevent them from becoming epidemic or even pandemic.
Researchers conducted a proof-of-concept study that successfully assessed the genetic information of extremely rare foetal cells in maternal peripheral blood.
Bio-Rad Laboratories' droplet digital PCR technology enables researchers and clinicians to effectively monitor biomarkers of malignant and non-malignant blood disorders.
The Myco-Sniff-Valid Mycoplasma PCR Detection Kit has been demonstrated to be a sensitive, specific and rapid method for the detection of mycoplasma contamination in cell cultures.
A new laboratory tool simultaneously assesses several indicators of HBV infection that are important for optimal patient management.
A combination of off-the-shelf quantum dot nanotechnology and a smartphone camera soon could allow doctors to identify antibiotic-resistant bacteria in just 40 minutes.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 6 and 7 Pro Real-Time PCR Systems. Capabilities of the smart qPCR instruments include facial authentication, hands-free operation with voice-activated commands, radio-frequency identification (RFID)-enabled plate scanning, and quick access to service and support with a single touch.
