  • Publication number: 20210039097
    Abstract: A hand-held molecular diagnostic test device includes a housing, an amplification (or PCR) module, and a detection module. The amplification module is configured to receive an input sample, and defines a reaction volume. The amplification module includes a heater such that the amplification module can perform a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on the input sample. The detection module is configured to receive an output from the amplification module and a reagent formulated to produce a signal that indicates a presence of a target amplicon within the input sample. The amplification module and the detection module are integrated within the housing.

  • Publication number: 20200406257
    Abstract: A method includes conveying a detection solution containing a target amplicon into a detection module of a molecular diagnostic test device. The detection module includes a detection surface including a series of capture probes to which a first portion of the target amplicon is bound when the detection solution is conveyed. A first reagent formulated to produce a visible signal indicating a presence of the target amplicon is then conveyed into the detection module. The first reagent is bound to a second portion of the target amplicon when the first reagent is conveyed. A second reagent is conveyed into the detection module. The second reagent includes a precipitating substrate formulated to catalyze the production of the visible signal by producing an insoluble colored product when the second reagent is in contact with the first reagent. The method includes viewing the visible signal via a transparent portion of the detection module.

  • Patent number: 10646875
    Abstract: Cartridges for the isolation of a biological sample and downstream biological assays on the sample are provided, as are methods for using such cartridges. In one embodiment, a nucleic acid sample is isolated from a biological sample and the nucleic acid sample is amplified, for example by the polymerase chain reaction. The cartridges provided herein can also be used for the isolation of non-nucleic acid samples, for example proteins, and to perform downstream reactions on the proteins, for example, binding assays. Instruments for carrying out the downstream biological assays and for detecting the results of the assays are also provided.
