Meridian illumigene® C. difficile

NEW molecular assay for the detection of C. difficile in stool…

Illumigene Promise of

Meridian illumigene® is a simple, flexible, cost-effective molecular assay for C. difficile detection. Meridian illumigene® allows addition of molecular assays without the cost of additional labor or capital expenditures. illumigene® makes it possible for any laboratory, regardless of space, personnel, or budget limitations to implement molecular diagnostic capabilities. Meridian illumigene® delivers the power of molecular technology in a simplified and affordable format. Meridian Bioscience has employed Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) technology to design and manufacture the illumipro-10™, a compact, automated detection system with a very simple assay process that is the heart of illumigene®. Based on feedback from hundreds of laboratory professionals, illumigene® is the molecular diagnostic system clinical labs have been waiting for.

Compared to traditional PCR, illumigene® is:

  • Simpler with a smaller footprint
  • Faster and more flexible
  • Less costly and more cost-effective

Simpler and Smaller: The simple 7-step sample preparation process takes less than 2 minutes of hands-on time per sample. The illumipro-10™ offers walk-away automation. When you place the sample into the illumipro-10™ and press the “run” button, your work is done.

With illumigene® there is:

  • No centrifugation, precision pipetting
  • No thermal cycling
  • No gel electrophoresis

The illumipro-10:

  • Has a very small footprint—approximately the size of an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper
  • Internal and external keyboard as well as an internal bar code reader for flexible sample ID entry
  • Provides continuous access while running up to 10 samples at a time in 2 independent 5-sample chambers

Streck Philisa® Thermal Cycler

Reliable PCR in Under 15 Minutes:

The Philisa® Thermal Cycler is an innovative high speed polymerase chain reaction (PCR) instrument with the potential to improve laboratory efficiency and flexibility. Rapid thermal ramp rates, precise thermal control, and thin-walled plastic tubes, enable your lab to perform fast and reliable PCR in under 15 minutes.

Reduced Amplification Time:

Reduce your PCR amplification time to less than 15 minutes using standard PCR chemistry. Save time without sacrificing results.

Industry Leading Ramp Rates:

While other thermal cyclers offer maximum ramp rates of 5ºC/s, Philisa achieves heating ramp rates up to 15ºC/s and cooling ramp rates up to 12ºC/s, making the Philisa Thermal Cycler the best choice for fast PCR.

Reaction Volume Flexibility:

Whether you use 10 µl or 50 µl, the Philisa Thermal Cycler maintains its ultra-fast speeds, so you can turn around reactions of either volume quickly.

Enzyme and Template Flexibility:

Perform rapid PCR from E. coli, Lambda, and human genomic DNA using enzymes such as Platinum Taq and KOD Hot-Start Polymerase.

 High Sensitivity:

Amplify products from very low template copy numbers in under 20 minutes, including hgDNA.

Well to Well Uniformity:

Ensure consistent, reproducible results across reactions with excellent well-to-well uniformity and thermal accuracy.
