GenomEra CDX system and PCR tests

A powerful tool to run molecular diagnostics routinely and cost-efficiently without compromising the quality

Finnish Abacus Diagnostica´s (Uniogen Oy) patented GenomEra® technology uses time resolving fluorescence detection with a simple-to-use reagent concept and a small plastic test chip containing all the needed reagents in a dried format. Technology can be used to detect various viral and bacterial pathogens directly from a sample with no additional nucleic acid extraction. Both instrument and reagents are CE-IVD marked and they have the Finnish Key Flag Symbol.

Simplicity and speed

Rapid sample pretreatment and fast PCR run time enable the detection of 4 samples in an hour and up to 96 samples in 24 hours per one analyzer. Random access can be obtained by combining multiple GenomEra® CDX instruments into one laptop computer.

Sensitivity and safety

Sensitive end-point detection with time-resolved fluorometry provides good assay sensitivity. Test chips are irreversibely sealed by the analyzer to eliminate the risk of contamination after PCR amplification.
