In-Field qPCR

On-site processing and DNA analysisof water and biofilm samples

Hunter qPCR Device

InstantLabs has developed the industry’s only system for direct on-site processing and DNA analysis of water and biofilm (solid) samples. The entire system is fully mobile and results are delivered easily in just a few hours using InstantLabs’ Hunter® qPCR device. In-Field DNA testing delivers:

Tech-Ultimate_1

More Actionable Data

Culture-based methods such as “bug bottles” and methods such as ATP testing are non-specific or don’t capture the entire microbial population, leaving you with unanswered questions after tests are complete. The Hunter® system employs state of- the-art assays that target microbial DNA ensuring high specificity and maximum coverage of damaging organisms.

Tech-ResultsIn_1

Faster Results

Traditional methods take weeks to generate results due to culturing time or the necessity to ship samples from the field to a laboratory. The Hunter® system delivers actionable results on-site in just a few hours allowing mitigation strategies (i.e. biocides) to begin immediately. Reducing the time to results can prevent millions of dollars in new or ongoing damage.
