S-TECH: NEW TOOLS FOR POINT-OF-CARE DIAGNOSTICS
Portable instruments for quantitative isothermal amplification
Mauri ora te whenua, mauri ora te tāngata.
The DNAiTECH technology enables real-time quantitative isothermal amplification. The DNAiTECH is powerful because it integrates a small portable isothermal amplifcation instrument with the imaging and data processing power of a smartphone. The instrument is operated by the smartphone via Bluetooth, with the phone camera providing the optical detection of the DNA amplification, data collection and processing via the DNAiTECH app. DNAiTECH can be used for any isothermal method for rapid nucleic acid amplification. The instrument is cost effective, has low power requirements and can be operated remotely with its internal lithium-ion batteries.
Applications for DNAiTECH include:
Point of Care Diagnostics (POC),
In-field environmental testing,
Research laboratory instruments,
Education, tertiary and secondary,
Community science outreach programs,
Citizen science projects.
