MICROBE DETECTION

Why PCR? Traditional culture methods have been commonly used for microbial detection and microbial identification, however, they have limitations. Due to a lengthy culture time (1-7 days) and significant challenges for culturing some microorganisms, culture methods cannot provide rapid diagnostic solutions. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) has demonstrated its effectiveness to detect and identify microbes in less than a few hours with precision.

What are our target microbes? Our assays target a broad spectrum of microbes including bacterial and viral pathogens that infect plants, animals, and humans. We want to help our clients to confirm microbial presence in products and to detect microbial contamination in environmental, agricultural, or clinical samples. Our PCR-based assays can be tailored to meet clients’ specific needs.

GENE DETECTION

PCR technology has been widely used for gene detection by scientists. Cicadea Biotech serves as a contract research organization to perform PCR testing for gene detection. We work with clients to develop custom PCR assays for gene detection and perform high-throughput PCR testing. We provide rapid-testing solutions to detect transgenes in plants and human cancer-related genes. We also perform genomic analysis on any DNA samples.

TURN-AROUND TIME

Our turn-around time for PCR testing can be from 24 hours to days depending on the availability of the assays. The turn-around time for new assay development varies by the availability of materials and assay complexity. We work closely with clients to come up with a reasonable timeline for both assay work and testing work.

  • Positive review for Digital PCR:

    January 2020

    "We needed to read ddPCR plates. We sent the plates and received results the following day. They were quick to reply to any questions we had."
