CORE TECHNOLOGIES

Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) Targeting

The Gen-Probe patented rRNA targeting technology is easy to perform and provides in-solution reactions that result in nucleic acid assays with higher sensitivity due to the increased cellular copy levels of rRNA versus DNA. In addition, this technology also produces higher specificity over both broad and narrow phylogenetic ranges due to Gen-Probe's unique ability to "dial in" on the desired detection sequences for its assays.

Target Capture

Proprietary sample preparation technology uses oligonucleotides and magnetic microparticles to isolate target nucleic acid for amplification and to eliminate potentially inhibiting substances.

Transcription-Mediated

Amplification (TMA)

Superior amplification technology targets RNA or DNA sequences. Ten billion-fold amplification is achieved in less than one hour.

Hybridization Protection Assay (HPA)

Uses a specific DNA probe that hybridizes with the nucleic acid target. Emits a chemiluminescent signal for ease of detection and differentiation.

Dual Kinetic Assays (DKA)

Extends the power of HPA by allowing the simultaneous detection of two analytes in a single specimen.

The presence of both receptor subtypes ( a feature not found in conventional AChRAb assays) increases the diagnostic sensitivity of the assay as certain patient sera may preferentially bind to the mature receptor type. The reconstituted I(125) tracer/receptor preparation is stable for up to 14 days.

The Thermo Fisher Scientific Shandon CheckMate[TM] Verification System eliminates sample misidentification and ensures result integrity in the Anatomical Pathology laboratory.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

This breakthrough system completely eliminates sample mismatching errors by accurately scanning and matching bar codes from slides, cassettes and specimen containers at various workstations in the laboratory. Visual and audio indicators ensure that IDs are properly matched.

Verification data can be accessed by lab managers for reporting and quality improvement purposes. This new product was specially designed for labs that are implementing six sigma and lean management processes. The system, made up of barcode scanners, a mini PC and the proprietary CheckMate software, can be installed independently of the LIS, enabling slides and cassettes to be matched at workstations not connected to an LIS (i.e. microtomes).
