The isothermal DNA amplification that really works
TwistDx provides Recombinase Polymerase Amplification or RPA, an isothermal DNA/RNA amplification and detection technology that offers:
SPEED - Detection in 10-15 minutes
SENSITIVITY - Single molecule detection
SIMPLICITY - Stable lyophilised reagents
LOW COST - Little or no hardware required
PORTABLE - Isothermal technology with battery-powered instrument or disposable test format
ROBUST - To sample contaminants and temperature fluctuations
RPA therefore offers a portable, isothermal alternative to PCR which is ideally suited to point of use molecular assays for IVD, veterinary, food safety, biodefence and agricultural applications.
TwistDx makes RPA accessible to end users in the form of TwistAmp® kits. The kits are configured with options for electrophoresis, fluorescent and lateral flow detection methods and for DNA and RNA targets. TwistAmp® kits contain all the reagents (apart from target-specific primers and probes) researchers need in order to develop their own rapid, highly sensitive and specific RPA assays.
RPA. It really works!
