Fewer False Positives
PathoSEEK assays detect target organisms on a genetic level, searching for unique DNA sequences associated with each organism, or group of organisms. This prevents costly false positives. Conversely, research has shown culture-based methods often grow off-target organisms, leading to false positives and more pesticide usage.
Test for all six microbial targets listed in the California regulations for inhaled products, using just two wells on a 96-well plate. This means you can test 46 samples on a single instrument run, driving costs down to under $3 per target organism, including consumables!
Scalable & Flexible
The qPCR-based platform was designed for a seamless transition to automation, and scripts for Hamilton robotics are available for immediate turnkey installation. The equipment can also be used to perform youPCR Plant Screening tests for plant gender, pests, and genetic markers.
