Pathogen Detection System
The 3M Molecular Detection System is powered by an innovative combination of unique technologies — Isothermal DNA Amplification and Bioluminescence detection — to provide a solution that is fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable.It’s pathogen testing made pure and simple.
A compact system designed purely for superior testing. Each streamlined component works together to optimize performance with features that save time, increase productivity and assure accuracy. Pure
The 3M Molecular Detection System uses multiple, specific primers targeting distinct regions of the genome, combined with real-time detection of the amplification, to deliver sensitive and specific results.
Continuous amplification by a unique, high-fidelity DNA polymerase makes our system less prone to matrix interference. This was designed to help you perform fewer repeat tests and make critical decisions faster.
Our system makes testing easy, increasing technician productivity and efficiency. All you need is an enriched sample, a laptop and the 3M Molecular Detection System. Using a DNA polymerase that is tolerant to low-quality DNA samples allows for a simple assay set-up with fewer steps.
Your lab can even test and display results for multiple organisms in a single run. The simplicity and robustness of our technology combine to deliver a low-cost instrument with minimal maintenance requirements and less downtime for your lab.
How does it work?
The 3M Molecular Detection System uses multiple primers to recognize distinct regions of the genome and Bst DNA polymerase to provide continuous and rapid amplification of genetic material.
Pyrophosphate ions (PPi), a by-product of the targeted DNA amplification reaction, and APS, are enzymatically converted into ATP by ATP-Sulfurylase. ATP reacts with luciferase to produce light which is detected indicating the presence of target organism DNA.
Both amplification and detection occur simultaneously and continuously during the exponential phase providing real time results and a short run time.
The science may be complex, but using the system is simple. With the same protocol for each assay and fewer steps than most tests, our system makes it easy to train employees. Color-coded assay tubes with matching software screens deliver a simple, easy-to-use process. Testing different pathogens uses the same process, reducing repetitive tasks for less chance of human error. Plus, our low-maintenance system alerts the operator if it self-detects a malfunction or failure.
