Faster Research via Topoisomerase-Activity Detection
25 years in the making, our technology – VPCIR™ – makes scientists capable of measuring the activity-level of topoisomerase enzymes through our patented DNA substrate.
With our products you will be able to do drug screening and pathogen detection in humans, animals and food faster and cheaper – and visualize the results using fluorescence, ECL or TMB.
RAPID 1-DAY RESULTS
VPCIR™ enables detection of very low numbers or concentration of the target pathogens without the need for lengthy cultivation steps or multi-step processes.
VPCIR™ can easily be adapted to both bacteria (prokaryotes), protozoa (eukaryotes) and human or animal cell analysis. New products and solutions can quickly be brought to market meeting needs in diverse market segments.
ONLY LIVING PATHOGENS
Enzyme activity as biomarker provides a biologically relevant measurement. VPCIR™ assays can detect increased/ decreased activities in complex matrices and biological systems and discriminate between live and dead pathogens.
A cell contains few DNA molecules but ~1,000 enzymes which enhances sensitivity when using enzymes as biomarker. The catalytic activity of enzymes is exploited to ensure high signal amplification when using VPCIR™ technology.
Simple procedure and no need for special equipment. Laboratories of all sizes can reuse existing instruments and automation processes without staff re-training.
Costs are highly competitive to current standard methods offering both direct savings and efficiency with an unbeatable value proposition.
