Rapid nucleic acid detection | Standard kits, OEM and Customisation


Rapid detection of nucleic acid with intuitive NALFIA tests

PCRD FLEX, a ready-to-use nucleic acid lateral flow immunoassay (NALFIA), is used as a safe and rapid alternative to using DNA agarose gel electrophoresis. PCRD FLEX offers the rapid detection of nucleic acid with with a easy to use dipstick.

  • Time to result of 10 minutes
  • Safe to use – avoids using intercalating dye, ethidium bromide and UV light
  • No special chemistry or equipment required
  • Easy to use
  • Sensitive
  • Run many strips simultaneously
  • Cost-effective

Time-saving, rapid NALFIA technology aiding laboratory budgets and schedules


PCRD FLEX nucleic acid lateral flow immunoassays detect amplicons labelled with DIG/Biotin and/or FITC (or FAM)/Biotin. The tests allow the visualisation of double-stranded amplification products and selected binding partners due to an aggregation of carbon particles at the test’s capture lines.

If PCRD FLEX or PCRD is not suitable for your amplification product, we do offer customisation. However, if our our nucleic acid test specification is suitable but you would like the kits re-branding, we can also help.

Compatible amplification methods*

  • Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
  • Loop mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP)
  • Recombinase Polymerase Amplification (RPA)
  • Helicase dependent amplification (HDA)

Applications and industries

  • Meat speciation testing
  • Food and drink authenticity
  • Food and feed testing
  • Infectious disease: animal and human health

*Please note that operating protocols may differ between each method.Depiction of using NALFIA tests for the rapid detection of nucleic acid
