Quick Test Kits

Our Quick Test line is inspired by the rapid detection speed of our BioNanoPore technology and the identification accuracy of our BioNanoFilter technology. Within a quarter of the time it takes conventional Petri dish methods, our Quick Tests detect and identify the growth of a wide variety of bacteria and yeasts, such as E. coli, MRSA, Group B Strep, Salmonella spp or Listeria spp. Our Quick tests are so sensitive that they can detect and identify target bacteria in concentrations of a single cell.

After the 20 minute washing and staining process only E. coli O157:H7 is left on the membrane, and thus identified as present in the sample.

For example, the NanoLogix E. coli O157:H7 Quick Test, is specifically designed to test samples for E. coli contamination. The process begins with seven hours of growth at 37 degrees celcius followed by transfer of colonies on a membrane that is coated with a chromogenic substance. Micro-colonies become visible for Aerobic Plate Count. The Quick Test provides a simple 20 minute process for the identification of the targeted bacteria. This portion of the process uses a HRP-conjugated antibody solution to react with the E. coli present on the membrane. In a final step, this membrane is placed on a staining solution. After 20 minutes, staining with specific antibody allows E. coli O157:H7 to be identified, if present in the sample.

Order Quick Test Kits

Recent BNF quick test kit discoveries and product performance improvements have dramatically reduced detection and identification times. Product ordering is temporarily suspended as we optimize these product developments and design changes.

NanoLogix products are currently available for QA/QC purposes in self-certifying organizations, such as those in the pharmaceutical, veterinary, cosmetic and food processing industries.

We sell exclusively to established medical and scientific entities including laboratories, medical institutions, universities, businesses, and research establishments. We will not sell to non-qualified individuals.

International orders require direct communication with NanoLogix and are subject to a case by case business evaluation. Product will be sent with a 1-2 day delivery expectation. Quality cannot be guaranteed due to potential environmental conditions during transportation. Please click here to be alerted when NanoLogix technology is commercially available outside of the U.S.
