Thermo Fisher Scientific TrueMark Infectious Disease Research Panels
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched TrueMark infectious disease research panels. Based on real-time PCR technology, the product has predefined and customizable panel options that enable researchers to choose from more than 90 bacterial and viral strain assays while generating results within four hours. According to the company, the assays, which use pre-spotted and dried-down TaqMan plates, can be used for nasopharyngeal swabs or aspirate; vaginal, genital, and lesion swabs; or urine samples. The panels are optimized for use on QuantStudio qPCR systems, which can provide easy-to-read results with the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio Design and Analysis Software.
