TwistDx is the provider of Recombinase Polymerase Amplification (RPA), an enzymatic isothermal DNA amplification and detection technology that is the breakthrough alternative to polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
RPA is capable of single molecule detection in 3-15 minutes using stable, lyophilised reagents. With increased speed, portability, simplicity of use and PCR-like sensitivity, RPA has become the DNA-based diagnostic platform of the future.
TwistDx makes RPA accessible to end-users in the form of TwistAmp® kits. The kits are configured with options for electrophoresis, as well as fluorescent and lateral flow detection methods for DNA and RNA targets. TwistAmp® kits contain all the reagents (apart from target-specific primers and probes) that researchers need to develop their own rapid, highly sensitive and specific RPA assays.
RPA is ideally suited to point-of-care diagnostics for applications including veterinary, food safety, biodefence, agriculture, water testing and clinical.
