Novel, pathogen concentration and enrichment technology
Concentrate low copy number cells from large samples
Diagnostic testing for certain infectious diseases can be challenging, as many tests don’t currently offer gold standard sensitivity and specificity. This is exacerbated with point of care devices and can provide a false negative result in samples where there is a very low concentration of target pathogen, such as early sepsis or TB.
CAPTURE-XT® is a novel, pathogen concentration and enrichment technology which collects and concentrates all target pathogens from a large sample volume to provide a clean, concentrated sample for molecular diagnosis. Fluorescence optics can be used for visual analysis with suitable dyes.
If required, the sample can be transferred to the Q-POC™ for further drug-susceptibility analysis or used for DNA sequencing, cell analysis or other downstream processes.
