Differing from traditional systems using large heating modules, ITRI’s miniaturized portable molecular diagnostic system adopts an innovative design for mechanisms and temperature control to enable polymerase chain reactions. It can achieve conditions for effective nucleic acid amplification without moving parts or complex control devices. ITRI has also developed a proprietary real–time optical detection module to perform rapid qualitative or semi–quantitative tests, which can achieve rapid qualitative test results within 30 minutes.
Applications & Benefits
The system can be used in all medical or testing facilities. When combined with suitable reagents, it can be applied in molecular diagnostics of viral or bacterial infections, genetic variations, and various agricultural uses such as aquaculture, husbandry, and genetically modified food products.
