CENOS is our innovative platform technology which comprises of our portable instrument and Extraction Free (XF) Reagent System.
CENOS has the unique ability to carry out high sensitivity RT-qPCR diagnostic testing direct from almost any crude sample medium (including whole unprocessed blood) anywhere in the world without the need for expert personnel, lab facilities or equipment whilst the patient (human or animal) waits .....and in under 30 minutes. CENOS embodies and supports our strategy of At Patient Testing (APT).
Our proprietary molecular diagnostic reagents are cold-chain free and supplied ready to use in our dedicated consumable. Users simply add the provided resuspension buffer and their chosen sample medium to perform the closed tube reaction.
Being cold-chain free there is no requirement for specialist storage facilities or transport conditions. This means our tests can be deployed and used anywhere in the world. Lyophilised reagents and hot-start aptamer technology allow reactions to be set-up at up to 40C with no adverse effect on performance or risk of denaturation. This makes the system perfectly suited for in-field testing in almost any environment from Europe to warmer climates such as Africa, South America, Southern Asia and inevitably other regions of the world subject to the impact of climate change.
