3M™ Molecular Detection System
The 3M Molecular Detection System (MDS) is powered by an innovative combination of unique technologies — Isothermal DNA Amplification and Bioluminescence Detection — to provide a solution that is fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable.
The 3M MDS uses multiple, specific primers targeting distinct regions of the genome, combined with real-time detection of the amplification, to deliver sensitive and specific results. Continuous amplification by a unique, high-fidelity DNA polymerase makes our system less prone to matrix interference. This was designed to help you perform fewer repeat tests and make critical decisions faster.
The 3M MDS makes testing easy, increasing technician productivity and efficiency. All you need is an enriched sample, a laptop and the 3M Molecular Detection System. Using a DNA polymerase that is tolerant to low-quality DNA samples allows for a simple assay set-up with fewer steps. Your lab can even test and display results for multiple organisms in a single run. The simplicity and robustness of our technology combine to deliver a low-cost instrument with minimal maintenance requirements and less downtime for your lab.
With the same protocol for each assay and fewer steps than most tests, our system makes it easy to train employees. Colour-coded assay tubes with matching software screens deliver a simple, easy-to-use process. Testing different pathogens uses the same process, reducing repetitive tasks for less chance of human error. Plus, our low-maintenance system alerts the operator if it self-detects a malfunction or failure.
