RPA - A Revolutionary isothermal DNA and RNA Amplification technology from TwistDx

TwistDx is the provider of Recombinase Polymerase Amplification (RPA) a new isothermal DNA amplification & detection technology that offers the following benefits:

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.
