AFFINITY MATERIALS FOR ISOLATION OF MICROBES AND A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR THEIR POU DETECTION
You have to know – when microbial presence is a risk to safety, to efficiency, to functionality or when it is part of your research – then capturing and isolating them and performing diagnostic tests to measure their presence is essential. But culture-plate methods take days, and many rapid microbe isolation and detection methods require a capital investment and a higher cost per test.
Not with RAN Biotech’s materials and methods. RAN Biotech’s patented approach captures, isolates and detects microbes accurately, affordably – and in hours instead of days. It is based on novel nextgen affinity beads and resins capable of capturing and isolating microbes including viruses and if needed, aggregating them in the form of a pellet that separates from the rest of the sample via various methods, e.g. gravity, filtration or magnetism. Our technology works in samples as small as 0.03 nano-liter micro-reactors and droplets and up to liters.
