Seegene Announces New Real-Time Multiplex Diagnostic Technology
Seegene announced that it will unveil TOCE™, a new platform technology for real-time PCR, at the 2011 Clinical Lab Expo of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC), booth #1653.
TOCE™ is a novel technology for melting curve analysis. The method is readily utilizable for organism identification and the detection of mutations in clinical samples. Until now, melting curve analysis has been constrained by several inherent limitations - namely, constrained probe design, the inability to extensively and efficiently multiplex, and high sensitivity of the melting curves (Tm) due to sequence variation of the probe site.
TOCE technology overcomes these limitations, providing:
Seegene will begin introducing TOCE in its lineup of multiplex diagnostic tests. The first application of TOCE will be a respiratory test that simultaneously detects 16 respiratory viruses and 5 pneumonic bacteria, and a test for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that simultaneously detects 7 pathogens.
