About this entry

We sell a range of poc diagnostics tests for detection of smoking and adherence to anti TB therapy. We have adapted and modified a DNA probe technology to work with our simple SafeTube format. We have obtained proof of principle for a rapid, simple to use test for detection of MRSA. It requires no DNA extraction and gives a colorimeteric reading after 30 minutes. The company is considering extending this to detect carbapenemase producin enterobacteriacea (CPE) and MDR resistant TB.
