Rapid Tests based on Real-time PCR
Laboratories working with foodstuffs or environmental samples need testing equipment that ensures flexibility, efficiency, and speed. EMD’s foodproof® real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) kits combine convenience, safety and reliability with a great variety of food and environmental parameters – from testing for the most important pathogens to spoilage organisms in beer to Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). By using ‘real-time’ PCR technology, our foodproof® kits enable results to be seen as they are being generated, – a major advantage over 'standard'-PCR kits. foodproof® kits include all reagents necessary for detection and use several internal control reactions in order to rule out false-positive or -negative results. A built-in security step prevents carry-over contaminations from previously generated PCR products in the lab. For all foodproof® PCR kits, EMD also provides easy-to-use sample preparation kits. EMD is the only vendor offering real-time PCR kits for both FRET (ROCHE LightCycler® 1.x,2,0 /480) and TaqMan® applications, giving you complete flexibility in your choice of equipment.
