Pathogen Detection – ROW

Genetic Signatures develops products for rapid pathogen detection.

Our EasyScreen™ Pathogen Detection Kits offer the following advantages:

  • An integrated automatable sample processing method
    A complete workflow is offered from sample to result.
  • Rapid detection
    From sample to result in 3-5 hours, with minimal hands-on time
  • In-built controls
    High level of confidence in results as extraction failure and inhibition controls reduce the likelihood of false negatives
  • Real-Time PCR format
    No post-PCR handling, virtually eliminating potential for contamination
  • Thorough coverage of common pathogens
    e.g. Up to 22 gastroenteritis-causing pathogens are simultaneously detected from the one sample preparation
  • Open platform
    Compatible with most automated sample preparation systems and real-time PCR instruments commonly found in laboratories
