Conventional genetic testing equipment was only used in specialized facilities as it was large-sized, expensive, and testing took a long time.
Meanwhile, there are demands for genetic testing that can be used on-site and can provide measurement results quickly.
“In order to satisfy the market needs, we developed this compact device that provides shorter testing times while maintaining a high level of accuracy by combining the following technologies held by the Information & Telecommunication Device Division of Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd.
(1) “Unique small-sized fluorescence detection technology for measuring gene amount at a high sensitivity”
(2) “Technology to increase genes on a small plastic board at a high speed””
This enables you to carry out high-sensitivity genetic testing anywhere.
As the device can quickly identify various types of genes on-site, it is expected to be used in a wide range of fields including food sanitary in factories, environmental pollution investigations, and bioprospecting.
NSG Group will continue to contribute to the advancement of genetic testing in the world with its motto “faster measurement on-site”.
