A rapid alternative to DNA agarose gel electrophoresis

Abingdon Health manufactures nucleic acid lateral flow immunoassays (NALFIA), called PCRD, which can be used as an alternative to using DNA agarose gel electrophoresis. While taking only 10 minutes to detect the successful amplification of target DNA sequences, PCRD is the choice for busy laboratories wanting fast results.

What is PCRD?

PCRD nucleic acid lateral flow assays are qualitative rapid assays designed to detect amplicons labelled with DIG/Biotin and/or FITC (or FAM)/Biotin, with the addition of a control line. The lateral flow test strips incorporate reagents which sequentially capture and allow the visualisation of double-stranded amplification products containing selected binding partners.

  • A rapid, safe and sensitive alternative to ethidium bromide staining of agarose gels
  • A simple method of amplicon detection that takes only 10 minutes
  • Results are detectable by eye due to an aggregation of carbon particles at the capture lines

Advantages of nucleic acid detection with PCRD

In addition to being able to cope with large workloads, owing to their ease of use, the following benefits make PCRD an obvious choice for post DNA amplification nucleic acid confirmation.

  • Safe to use – avoids using intercalating dye and UV light
  • No special chemistry or equipment required
  • Time to result of 10 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • High sensitivity
  • Many strips can be run simultaneously
  • Cost-effective
