The Assurance® GDS genetic detection system combines the latest advancements in molecular detection technology and food microbiology to provide faster results with the increased accuracy required to meet today’s food and environmental testing challenges. The Assurance® GDS system comprises three simple steps: Sample enrichment, Sample preparation assays utilizing our innovative GDS PickPen® immunomagnetic separation (IMS) device, and PCR analysis with the GDS Rotor-Gene® thermal cycler.
Test for key foodborne pathogens, including Salmonella, Listeria spp., Listeria monocytogenes, Cronobacter, E. coli O157:H7 (EHEC), and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) with confidence.
We offer multiple formats, including options that can be fully automated using the Assurance® GDS PickPen® PipetMax® (PPMX) system
From start to finish, the Assurance® GDS system is designed to be simple, flexible and easy to run.
Faster than many conventional thermal cyclers, the Assurance® GDS Rotor-Gene® instrument is an innovative centrifugal air-exchange thermal cycler that puts a new spin on things.
Patented primers and probes ensure greater accuracy.
Each amplification tube contains a set of highly specific patented primers(probes) and a discrete internal control which ensures the highest level of specificity
