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.
