The FlexStar® LDT (RT-)PCR Detection Mix 1.5 (RUO) is out now. This detection mix is designed for the real-time PCR based amplification and detection of nucleic acids. Specific primer and probes for the amplification and detection of different pathogen combinations can be added as needed to create a lab developed test (LDT). A CE-IVD version is under development.
