Rapid Alternative To DNA Agarose Gel Electrophoresis
PCRD nucleic acid detection LFDAbingdon Health manufactures nucleic acid lateral flow immunoassays (NALFIA), called PCRD, which can be used as an alternative to using DNA agarose gel electrophoresis. While taking only 10 minutes to detect the successful amplification of target DNA sequences PCRD is the choice for busy laboratories wanting fast results.
WHAT IS PCRD NUCLEIC ACID DETECTION?
PCRD Nucleic acid lateral flow assays are qualitative rapid assays designed to detect amplicons labelled with DIG/Biotin and/or FITC (or FAM)/Biotin, with the addition of a control line.
DETECTION OF AMPLIFIED DNA PRODUCTS USING LATERAL FLOW ASSAYS
PCRD is a rapid, safe and sensitive way to confirm the successful outcome of a DNA amplification exercise. The lateral flow test strips incorporate reagents which sequentially capture and allow the visualisation of double-stranded amplification products containing selected binding partners.
