Oxford Biosystems has an extensive range of products and technologies to offer a microbiology laboratory, from a variety of manufacturers.

The increasing global threat from Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) means that it is important to not only identify the pathogen causing infection, but also to demonstrate active antimicrobial stewardship and limit the spread of resistant pathogens. Our product range now includes innovative products enabling the identification of specific resistance genes using cost effective molecular techniques.

New developments and technologies are increasing the amount of products available in the market for the detection of pathogens. Serological tests remain important however to confirm diagnosis, for epidemiological information, and to detect reinfection or reactivation of infection. We have an extensive range of serological kits from a variety of manufacturers.

Master Diagnostica DNA Flow Technology

Master Diagnostica DNA Flow Technology provides the platform for rapid analyses in membrane-based reverse dot blot hybridization processes. DNA target molecules are directed to complementary capture probes immobilised in the matrix pores. The reaction between the target DNA and probes in a three-dimensional environment results in a high signal intensity in a very short period of time.

Reduced reagent volumes and processing time result in an economical alternative to multiplex molecular diagnostics.

genetrac Real Time PCR Kits

genetrac is part of the BioVendor group of companies and has developed a wide range of real time PCR kits based on hot start technology to minimise any non-specific reactions. All kits contain reagents for 25 tests with UDG (uracil-DNA –glycosidase) to remove the potential for false positives due to cross contamination, and include positive controls. An internal control is present in the Master Mix reagent to detect PCR inhibition.

The Magnetic Induction Cycler is a compact rotary based 48-well qPCR instrument that applies magnetic induction to achieve heating and forced airflow for cooling. Utilising a patented technology, MIC is an excellent companion to genetrac PCR kits.
