HybriScan® Detection of Organisms by rRNA (Micro Plate Test) Now Available in USA

Now Also Available in the USA

An easy, selective and rapid method for the identification and quantification of microorganisms. Easy sample preparation, no PCR and no expensive equipment is needed! Detects only living cells.

The kits are designed to detect single species like Listeria monocytogenes, groups of microorganisms like all bacteria from the genus Listeria or total bacterial count.
Using a 96-well microplate allows for economical, high-throughput screening but it is also possible to split the plate and run single samples. The test principle is based on the sandwich hybridisation method.

The BENEFITS of HybriScan Kits relative to conventional methods: -
  • Rapid, sensitive and reliable (without PCR)

  • Fast, saves up to 10 days compared to cultivation-based assays (test is finished within 2.5 h)

  • Discriminates between live and dead cells

  • High flexibility (group- or species-specific detection)

  • Detection of non-culturable organisms

  • Robust system not affected by the sample matrix

  • Quantitative results without cell counting

  • Uses standard laboratory equipment

  • Economical, high-throughput, 96-well microplate format
