It is a sensitive, portable, and rapid system capable of inhibitor tolerance.
Application Area: Virus detection
"It enabled portable, rapid results with a good tolerance for inhibitory substances. I am doing research to further refine it, but this tolerance considerably cuts down the amount of sample preparation needed for detection."

Molecular results in less than 10 minutes!
Application Area:Environmental Sample Analysis
"The speed of the amplification is one of the main reasons we use this technology. Assay development can be challenging especially when trying to multiplex. Knowing the design differences between PCR and RPA is key if you are considering this product. In addition, RPA isn't as susceptible to inhibition, which has allowed us to have successful amplification without the need for sample extraction, even in complex matrices like feces and serum."

the future of molecular diagnosis
Application Area:Rapid detection of RNA viruses
"The TwistAmp exo RT kits are perfect for rapid detection of RNA viruses under harsh condition. The reagents are stable at ambient temperature for about three months without any effect on the sensitivity. Results are achieved in maximum of 15 minutes. "

"We are in the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We are extremely happy to have the opportunity to integrate the RPA technology into our research exercises and also are very fortunate to have such a great technical and after sales support from the TwistDx Ltd company. The time and cost-saving product simplifies the laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures. Results with high specificity and sensitivity (of course with carefully-designed and titrated primers and probe) can be obtained in as fast as 15 minutes! Couple that with Twista portable real time fluorometer, and the application of the technology is a virtually limitless horizon. In the near future the detection of viraemic infectious agents can be done even at home, with prompt action taken without it being too late. TwistDx - A True Revolution in DNA & RNA Detection."
The exo RT kit is recommended for users who want to combine the TwistDx RPA technology to detect RNA targets with the use of TwistDx's proprietary fluorescent TwistAmp® exo probe in a homogenous read-out format.
