What is the DNAiTECH?
DNAiTECH combines android smart-phone technology with a simple Bluetooth connected handheld instrument that uses isothermal DNA amplification chemistry. Popular isothermal methods include loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), rolling circle amplification (RPA), recombinase polymerase amplification (RCA), helicase dependent amplification (HDA).
Avoiding expensive on-board optical systems and thermocycling DNA amplification, DNAiTECH makes DNA technologies affordable for resource limited settings, in-field deployment, and point of care diagnostics. The instrument is robust and lightweight making transport easy. The smartphone captures many images during the DNA amplification process and the smart-phone app processes fluorescent dye incorporation into the amplified DNA product in real-time. For more technical information on how the DNAiTECH works to measure DNA concentration go to our in-field testing page.
DNAiTECH is a versatile in-field instrument. It is lightweight, portable, and can be battery-powered, making it perfect for that immediate rapid result in the field or at the point of care. Real-time quantitative DNA amplification is yours for a fraction of cost of current DNA reading technologies.
