G-Sphere® Molecular Standards Provides Flexible QC for Labs
Phthisis Diagnostics has just rolled out its new molecular standards product line, the G-Sphere® Molecular Standards. The new line quickly follows the introduction of the company's second product in its Simply Molecular® line of enzyme-based extraction kits for rapid sample preparation prior to PCR applications in laboratories. Phthisis Diagnostics, based in Charlottesville, VA, is a rapidly growing biotechnology company developing a range of innovative molecular diagnostics technologies.
The G-Sphere® Molecular Standards are synthetic genes that provide safe, stable, consistent, and abundant controls for virtually any organism and any molecular assay. Molecular diagnostic laboratories face difficulties in obtaining consistent and reliable controls to monitor the performance of molecular assays and instruments. This new Phthisis product line, the only one currently offering such standards for parasites, is an innovative solution to improve and simplify quality control procedures.
This custom product is supplied as 100 reaction vials that come with dilution buffer and instructions for use. In addition to custom orders, a growing list of G-Sphere® Molecular Standards have been developed for various parasites, including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba, Plasmodium, Microsporidia, and other analytes of particular interest to public health laboratories.
Phthisis Diagnostics products are developed and manufactured in the USA to ISO 13485 standards in a QSR and cGMP compliant facility and are designated as general purpose reagents.
