What is it?
High efficiency screening for drug-resistant tuberculosis
This PCR flow-through hybridization assay detects the presence of wild-type of mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB).
It genotypes MTB variants that are resistant to first-line therapy using Rifampicin and Isoniazid.
The fast, cost-effective test is applied to liquefied, decontaminated human respiratory specimens.
This assay is used with FTPRO flow-through hybridization system.
Each consumable assay kit is capable of 32 reactions.
The test features:
3 control probes (KatG, InhA, and RpoB)
KatG, InhA and RpoB wild-type probes
10 mutation probes
Used with a compatible instrument, the assay is currently the fastest, most cost-effective method of achieving mid-resolution identification of the target molecule.
Who is it for?
This kit is especially valuable to practitioners responsible for the health of populations at risk of tuberculosis.
It’s useful for designing treatment regimes for patients diagnosed with tuberculosis.
Why is it different?
This highly sensitive test is currently the most cost-effective solution for genotyping MTB resistant to first-line therapy with Rifampicin and Isoniazid.
It’s fast and can deliver results three hours after extraction. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously.
The test features sample quality control and is easy to apply.
Flexible – Genotypes and detects wild-type tuberculosis microbacterium and drug-resistant variations
Fast – Delivers results in approximately 3 hours
Easy – Requires almost no training. Results can be accurately interpreted at a glance
Cost effective – Lowest overall cost in market, and handles small batches
Need to know
This is a consumable assay kit, developed, supplied and supported by DiagCor. It requires a compatible instrument and a meticulous MDx workflow.
This array test kit is capable of a total of 32 reactions.
Up to 16 samples can be processed in a test run. The capacity of the test chamber is four cassettes, each of which has four wells.
All 32 reactions can be consumed in two test runs.
- Works with
This state-of-the-art instrument performs fast, accurate DNA hybridization to identify the presence of a target molecule in a flexible sample size. Benefits include high efficiency, accurate results and low cost. The FTPRO is compatible with GenoFlow array kits.
CapturePRO image capture system
This instrument captures images of DNA analysis from the DiagCor FTPRO flow-through system and converts them into data. Images are transferred to a server for storage, analysis and reporting. This is a cost-effective way of managing and archiving large volumes of data from DNA-based testing and screening.
FTPRO Auto System is an automatic flow-through hybridization device. This platform adopts the patented flow-through hybridization technology in addition to its automatic operation. Its sophisticated design drastically improves the quality of testing and diagnostic experience.
This sensitive, highly specific kit works with various real time PCR machines to quickly detect Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (MTB) complex in clinical specimens.
A key component in medium resolution DNA analysis, this flow-through hybridization device considerably speeds specimen throughput.
