Automated, rapid and sensitive pathogen detection
LexaGene is developing a genetic analyzer for automated pathogen detection that is designed to be placed at the site of sample collection – to quickly detect multiple pathogens at once with sensitivity and specificity – and return results in about 1 hour.
The LX2™ Genetic Analyzer is being designed for syndromic testing in veterinary diagnostics and human clinical diagnostics, as well as food safety testing, water quality monitoring, and other markets that need critical answers in less time.
The technology’s open-access feature allows researchers in biotech, pharma, and academic laboratories to customize their testing, whether it is to detect rare infectious diseases, screen for cancer, or perform mRNA expression profiling.
The open-access feature also makes the system uniquely poised to become a critical part of preventing the spread of emerging strains of new infectious diseases to help avert a pandemic.
Simply load the sample and a cartridge onto the automated genetic analyzer and press ‘Go’. No pipetting or other steps are required. No need for a skilled technician.
Fast results – onsite
Test onsite, process 2 samples at a time. Rapid results reducing “time-to-result” from 1 – 3 days to about one hour.
Sensitivity and specificity
Process significant sample volume for better, more accurate detection. The analyzer uses real-time PCR for ultra-sensitive detection, and its high level of multiplexing allows for improved specificity.
