FAST-IDTM Technology*

Focused on rapid and efficient sample preparation

  • FAST-ID™ technology is designed to enhance speed in pathogen detection and identification
  • Aspiration from closed sample tube simplifies test set-up, minimizes potential contamination
  • Fully-automated intact pathogen recovery with e-lysisTM lysate is compatible with RT-PCR, eliminating the need for multi-step extractions
Pathogen Cell Isolation and Concentration
  • Sealed vaccutainer sample
  • Blood cells lysed and debris removed
  • Pathogen cells isolated and concentrated from whole blood sample
In-line, Automated Pathogen Cell Lysis, Amplification and Detection
  • In-line e-lysis™ preserves nucleic acids and denatures inhibitors
  • PCR-ready lysate is amplified for rRNA targets optimizing sensitivity
  • 20 well array includes 4 control wells and 16 reaction wells
