TwistDx - Freeing scientists from the thermoycler
TwistDx designs and manufactures Recombinase Polymerase Amplification or RPA, an isothermal DNA/RNA amplification and detection technology that works amazingly fast. RPA is a portable alternative to PCR which is ideally suited to point of use molecular assays for digital, microfluidics, agriculture, veterinary and defense applications.
Speed. Detection within 15 minutes.
Sensitivity. Single molecule detection and no thermocyler needed.
Simplicity. Stable lyophilised reagents. Reliable isothermal technology with little or no hardware required.
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.
