OptiGene provides the highest quality instrumentation and performance-leading reagents to support isothermal amplification of DNA and RNA.  OptiGene evolved from the growing demands around the world for field testing, rapid results and point-of-care diagnostics.

OptiGene has developed innovative products that support sensitive and specific detection of bacteria and viruses for use in the fields of plant health, food safety, veterinary medicine, environmental monitoring and healthcare.  Bio-defence and forensics are also key markets that OptiGene addresses.  The company has exploited its expertise in both instrument design and enzymology to develop a sophisticated open platform that will support all isothermal amplification methods.  Ultra-sensitive molecular detection that has been constrained to laboratory use by highly-qualified personnel and taking hours to complete can now be deployed to point of application and run with very little training, producing results in single minutes.
