Apta-beacons & Apta-sensors
No Capturing. No Washing. Just Read… In Minutes
Aptagen’s “No Capturing. No Washing. Just READ” assay is a radical advancement in diagnostic technology. Aptagen, LLC has developed a sensitive diagnostic platform that can detect virtually any target or antigen (from small molecules to protein biomarkers and cells) in a variety of sample matrices. Unlike current diagnostic formats, such as the traditional ELISA method and the more recently popular Luminex® approach, Aptagen’s Apta-Beacon™ assay eliminates the need for multiple target manipulation steps.
The Apta-Beacon™ platform requires neither capturing nor washing of sample(s), streamlining the analysis to quickly provide results with higher sensitivity.
Apta-Beacon (GQ-EXPAR, TMB)
The demo kit showcases the specificity of the colorimetric assay by detecting difficult small molecule targets, theophylline versus caffeine, which only differ by a single methyl group. The assay is also available in a fluorescent format for greater sensitivity.
Apta-Beacon (FQ, FAM-Dabcyl)
This demo kit showcases the sensitivity of a fluorescence-quencher molecular beacon by detecting the small molecule target Adenosine. Additional components supplied by the user can also allow the system to demonstrate aptamer specificity. See reference in the instruction sheet for more information.
