The COVID pandemic has dramatically reshaped the perception of diagnostics. Post the pandemic, a groundbreaking device that combines sample collection and processing into a single, easy-to-use disposable unit could revolutionize the way samples are collected for diagnostic tests.

ReadyGo Diagnostics’ (Bath, UK) Sampler device incorporates both the swab and collection buffers into one device, making it exceptionally user-friendly. It is the world’s first universal tool of its kind that ensures convenience, reliability, and reproducibility right from the initial step of a diagnostic test. The patented technology behind the ReadyGo Sampler uses specially engineered materials that not only allow the device to collect the exact amount of sample required instantly but also rapidly break open viruses and bacteria, making them readily detectable in specific tests. The ReadyGo Sampler device is intended to be a more user-oriented alternative to conventional swab-based sample collection methods by combining sample collection and processing into one disposable product.

This device is versatile, and compatible with various types of assays and uses, facilitating a swift and simple collection process that takes as little as five seconds. The Sampler is designed to cater to both consumer and professional testing markets and can accommodate various sample types such as saliva, buccal, blood, and urine. The patented Sampler device works with molecular tests like PCR and isothermal chemistries such as LAMP and RPA. Additionally, it is suitable for use in front of next-generation sequencing (NGS) protocols, including targeted sequencing and whole genome amplification (WGA). The technology allows for easy adaptation to incorporate other test chemistries, broadening its application to include simplified methods for biochemistry testing of physiological markers related to health and disease.
