If you have any questions about using PCRD FLEX for the rapid detection of nucleic acid, please get in touch via our contact us page.


PCRD FLEX is used to determine the success of target DNA amplification sequences by detecting amplicons labelled with DIG/Biotin and/or FITC (or FAM)/Biotin. The reagents used sequentially capture and allow the visualisation of double-stranded amplification products containing selected binding partners.

This simple method of amplicon detection takes only 10 minutes, and the result is detectable by eye due to an aggregation of carbon particles at the capture lines.

PCRD FLEX offers rapid detection of nucleic acid
