Mobidiag Announces Release of Amplidiag® Easy, a Proprietary Molecular extraction and PCR Setup System directly from Stool Samples
ESPOO, Finland, January 23rd, 2017 – Mobidiag Ltd, a Finnish molecular diagnostics company, today announced the CE-IVD marking of Amplidiag® Easy, a proprietary system allowing nucleic acid extraction and PCR setup directly from stool samples. The Amplidiag® Easy provides users with an automated solution accelerating the sample to result time. As the system runs directly from stool primary sample tubes to PCR setup, no manual intervention is required. Moreover, the Amplidiag® Analyzer software can transfer data directly between the Amplidiag® Easy and PCR instruments simplifying greatly the overall workflow.
The platform is specifically designed for and compatible with Mobidiag´s Amplidiag® product line, a suite of IVD tests for gastrointestinal infections. See full list.
“Amplidiag® Easy sets a new standard for multiplex assays in gastrointestinal infections as it allows labs to overcome their main challenges: improve cost-efficiency by reducing hands-on-time and increase sample throughput with automation. In that perspective, we are very pleased to see the adoption of our first platform by the renowned Finnish lab Yhtyneet Medix Laboratoriot for their routine diagnostic screen” said Tuomas Tenkanen, CEO at Mobidiag.
Amplidiag® are innovative multiplex tests for the detection of gastrointestinal infections. They allow to screen simultaneously panels of the most relevant gastrointestinal pathogens. Based on well-established real-time PCR technology, they ensure optimal performance, suitability for high-volume screening use and cost-effectiveness in mid-sized to large laboratory settings.
In addition to Amplidiag® assays, Mobidiag is able to address both high volume and on demand testing with the new Amplidiag® Easy platform, bringing the Amplidiag® suite further by automating the workflow from sample to results.
