Newswise - New York, NY-July 25, 2022-For more than 30 years, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been the gold standard in molecular diagnostic testing, detecting genetic material, such as those from a virus or from human DNA.


Sample-to-result workflow of RT-qPCR for rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2, including simple extraction-free sample preparation using a custom cartridge. Results are achieved in 23 minutes of thermocycling, facilitated by plasmonic heating of gold nanoparticles and multiplexed fluorescence monitoring in real-time.
