LX2 BETA PROTOTYPE RAPID AND SENSITIVE PATHOGEN DETECTION SYSTEM
LexaGene’s automated instrument quickly detects multiple pathogens with sensitivity and specificity. The technology utilizes single-use disposable cartridges to concentrate and purify genetic material from samples and microfluidics to perform molecular analysis. Each sample is screened using 12 triplex real-time PCR reactions. Included in the test are 12 positive (+) and 2 negative (-) controls so the operator has confidence in the generated results. LexaGene’s technology is designed to be operated by the individuals collecting the samples. No pipetting or molecular expertise is required. Raw samples are loaded onto the system using a single-use disposable cartridge. A touch-screen monitor is used to activates the automated processing and the instrument returns results in about one hour. The LX2™ Beta Prototype design for the veterinary market will allow for cost-effective, on-site pathogen testing in a smaller footprint.
