FT-PRO flow-through hybridization system

This state-of-the-art instrument performs fast, accurate DNA hybridization to identify the presence of a target molecule in a flexible sample size. Benefits include high efficiency, accurate results and low cost. The FT-PRO is compatible with GenoFlow array kits. 

What is it?

Invented and produced by DiagCor, this advanced flow-through hybridization instrument leads the market for speed, ease of use and accuracy in mid-resolution DNA analysis. 
 
It is also more cost effective than other MDx platforms. 
 
The DiagCor FT-PRO detects and identifies the presence of target DNA in an amplified specimen by comparing it to an assay supplied in an instrument-compatible kit.
 
The device features multiplexing – the identification of multiple variations (genotypes) of a virus from a single specimen. 
 
In a single reaction it can detect up to 33 target molecules.   

Who is it for?

The DiagCor FT-PRO is currently used in MDx research labs, healthcare institutions and MDx services labs around the world. 
 
With compatible assays, the DiagCor FT-PRO can be used for a wide range of medical, legal and food science.
 
Based on an open platform model, third parties are invited to develop assays for this device. 
 
A range of assay kits are available for this flexible platform and new assays are continually under development.

Why is it different?

  • Highly efficient vacuum flow-through process reduces the time for DNA hybridization reactions from hours to minutes
  • Instrument can be used for multiplexing and genotyping. It arranges up to 35 targets in a single reaction
  • Overcomes the limitations caused by the diffusion of reagents typical in other membrane-based systems 
  • No need for multiple water baths, shaking and liquid handling necessary with standard DNA hybridization and protein immunoblot applications 
  • Just set the temperature and add the reagent solutions and let the device do the rest 
  • Open platform approach means you can design your own assay and partner with DiagCor to distribute it 

Advantages

Fast – Delivers results in approximately 35 minutes
Easy – Requires almost no training. Snap-in disposable cassettes delivers results that can be interpreted at a glance, or digitally via a laboratory information management system
Cost effective – Uses 6 times less reagent and requires less manpower
Flexible – Sample batch flexibility means no need for specimen batching. There are a wide range of assays available for this model
Dependable – Stringent temperature control facilitates single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) hybridization
Ergonomic – Designed for user comfort with optimal screen angles and instrument access

Need to know

This instrument requires consumable assay kits, developed, supplied and supported by DiagCor. We also make our expertise available to third parties wishing to develop assay kits and other MDx innovations.
