Convergys® POC RT-PCR Nucleic Acid Detection System


Convergys® POC RT-PCR Nucleic Acid Detection System

The Convergys® POC RT-PCR is a point-of-care system for the fully-automated detection of nucleic acid sequences through real-time PCR technology.
The system works with single-use cartridges, which are pre-filled with all required reagents and enzymes, and are included in the Convergys® POC PCR Detection Kits. The patient sample material is directly applied to the cartridge; no previous nucleotide extraction is necessary. All processes are fully-automated and the results are available within 2 hours.
The Detection Kits are available in many different configurations for the detection of pathogens of diseases like Dengue, Hepatitis, Tuberculosis or COVID-19.
The Convergys® POC RT-PCR system is designed to offer molecular diagnostics at maximum convenience with minimum labor.
