Like every year, mid-November, CerTest Biotec (Zaragoza, Spain) is participating in the MEDICA fair in Düsseldorf to close its annual exhibitions tour, as this is the largest and most important event in the health sector, and which brings together several thousand exhibitors from more than 70 countries. Once again in the face-to-face format, this year’s edition of MEDICA represents four days of exhibition, knowledge transfer and networking for professionals and companies.

At MEDICA 2022, Certest is presenting several novel products for research and diagnosis, such as its new VIASURE RT-PCR Complete Solution, along with equipment and reagents for CLIA. The VIASURE Complete Solution comprises RNA/DNA pathogen extraction kits, nucleic acid extraction and PCR set-up system, RT PCR detection kits, RT PCR system and software, and RNA viral particles. VIASURE Complete Solution includes the VIASURE V-FLEX system, a new fully automated solution in molecular biology for nucleic acid extraction, purification and PCR set-up from biological matrix and samples. The instrument has been designed with flexible configuration, in order to meet different user needs.

Also a part of VIASURE Complete Solution is the VIASURE V-Lab96 Advanced RT PCR System with 96-well block for high sample throughput in diagnostic lab applications. VIASURE V-Lab96 allows users to analyze 96 samples simultaneously for qualitative and quantitative PCR. Also included is the VIASURE V-Smart software for the analysis and interpretation of VIASURE RT PCR assays. The VIASURE V-Smart software facilitates the conversion of the PCR raw data into test results with minimal manual intervention.

VIASURE DNA/RNA Pathogen Extraction Kit allows extraction from various biological samples such as swabs, saliva, sputum, bronchoalveolar lavages, fecal and urine samples. The kit is based on magnetic particles, which allows its automation for high throughput analysis, reducing hands-on-time and improving reproducibility. The extraction kit has been optimized for two types of magnetic separation methods: VIASURE V-Flex and KingFisher Flex (other platforms ongoing). Additionally, VIASURE Real Time PCR Detection Kits allow for simultaneous detection of multiple targets in a broad range of multiplexing diagnostic panels, including in the area of antimicrobial resistance.
