Understanding multiplex PCR
The ability to test for multiple potential diseases or conditions in one test is a game-changer for diagnostic testing— especially when signs and symptoms are similar.
One sample. Multiple tests.
Speed up the testing process. Multiplex PCR gives individuals and communities the power to know by cutting the time and cost it may normally take to get results. Faster analysis can mean quicker diagnosis and more precise prevention efforts to stop the spread of illness.
Save money and resources. Multiplexing conserves PCR components, consumable goods, and the time it takes to conduct the tests and get results—increasing savings for facilities that can be passed on to those who rely on them, and for users of the Co-Dx PCR Home™ Testing Platform with real-time PCR technology.
Get more information with less sample input. Depending on what type of PCR tests are being conducted, sample quantity may be scarce. Multiplexing helps to overcome this by reducing the number or volume of samples required to get results for multiple conditions. This is especially useful when the sample volume is limited.
Pinpoint what is making you sick. When illnesses have common symptoms, you need to know exactly what illness you may have and eliminate those that you don’t so you can take the right path to getting better. Multiplex PCR’s ability to detect multiple targets means the process of elimination is happening simultaneously and you have a clear view of what’s causing your illness.
