Bertin release Biotoxis qPCR detection kit
Bertin Instruments has just released Biotoxis, its new all-in-one qPCR (quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction) kit which enables multiple simultaneous pathogen detection: B. anthracis, Y. pestis and F. tularensis.
These highly dangerous pathogens are considered to be the first potential biological weapons leading to lethal infection.
In a context of global bioterrorism, the Biotoxis kit is designed for CBRN teams who need rapid results to intervene quickly in case of suspected biological attack.
Bertin’s Biotoxis is the only kit on the market capable of detecting all three reagents in one single reaction.
Its sensitivity makes it both precise and reliable, even in multiplex, where the detection limits represent 17 copies of target template for B. anthracis, 20 for Y. pestis and 49 for F. tularensis.
Biotoxis offers a method for pathogen detection in air and water, as well as in any biological samples.
