21.02.2022 | Real-time PCR analyzer AriaDNA – a perfect solution for limited space labs

February, 2022 – Riverdale GA, USA. COVID-19 testing center operates eight microchip-based RT-PCR analyzers AriaDNA for express diagnostic of SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza viruses in restricted space conditions.

The customer uses Lumex Instruments’ system for rapid Covid-19 detection and Influenza A/Influenza B/Covid-19 detection from saliva samples with pre-loaded microchips. The system allows analyzing 27 samples and 12 samples simultaneously in 32 minutes and 47 minutes, respectively. The saliva sample preparation and analysis processes are simplified, do not require extraction, need less reagents and consumables, and reduce possible human errors. Another advantage for a client – there are no painful nasal swabs involved in the sampling procedure.

The customer highlights the unique ability to test patients for Influenza A/Influenza B/Covid-19 in one run while maintaining the speed and accuracy of the analysis.

Lumex Instruments met the client requirements of sensitive, specific, and fast detection of SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza viruses. A fleet of eight compact, portable, and low-energy requiring real-time PCR analyzers AriaDNA successfully solved the problem of rapid PCR testing in a limited lab space.
