With almost 20 years of experience in addressing unmet needs in diagnostic markets, MicrosensDx specialises in developing cost-effective, easy to use and easily automatable technologies for the extraction and detection of intact pathogens and pathogen nucleic acids, from the widest range of samples.

SARS-CoV-2

We offer a low cost, high throughput sample preparation system which extracts the pathogen and/or PCR-ready pathogen nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2, and a clinically validated LAMP Test for SARS-CoV-2 which can detect the virus in less than 30 minutes with 99% specificity and sensitivity.

RapiPREP®

RapiPREP® is a low cost, high throughput sample preparation system which extracts the pathogen and/or PCR-ready pathogen nucleic acids from multiple pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. It is suitable for use with samples such as urine, throat or nasal swabs, blood, plasma, faeces and sputum. RapiPREP® combines a fast and highly efficient magnetic bead-based capture, washing and lysis of captured bacteria or virus releasing PCR-ready nucleic acids. 

Seprion™

The Seprion™ range of products detect aggregated proteins associated with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s diseases, and the Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies such as BSE, scrapie, vCJD and CWD. We have commercialised our Seprion™ BSE product, with a US partner, and this dominates the worldwide market for prion disease testing.
