- CATEGORY INSTRUMENTATION
TheICGENE mini is based on LAMP technology and was developed to allow the use of molecular diagnostic techniques without the need for unwieldy laboratory instruments. It is a Real Time amplifier and fluorescence reader which, through a user-friendly Android interface, guides the operator in carrying out the steps to be performed. Working simultaneously with up to 12 samples per run, it takes between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the kits being used, to perform all the steps necessary to attain test results.
The sample identification data is provided by the technician for each sample The identity of the operator and the kit is automatically logged by the RFID technology. The devise is thus able to record all the data necessary for complete traceability of tests. The results are available via tablet and through the ICGENE WEB platform. Data may also be managed via the web.
ICGENE mini is ideal for operations requiring routine quality control and for test laboratory environments where medium scale productivity is required. The same instrument, given its small dimensions, is also ideal for testing in the field. Two different kits are available for field tests. The kits come complete with accessories and are designed for phytopathology tests or water tests.
Automatic interpretation of results
The system provides automatic interpretation of results, real-time graphical representation and online availability. Sigmoid curves will display with positive (+) samples and indicate the presence of what is sought by the test. A display of lines indicates that the samples are negative (0).
