Benefits

Diachemix, LLC is a leader in the development of market disruptive, patent protected, and specialized rapid diagnostic tests using Fluorescence Polarization assays for major animal diseases and food safety applications.

Fluorescence Polarization assays offer rapid, accurate results, saving you time and money! Time and money are precious commodities when faced with contagious infection of animal herds or pathogen contamination of food or feed supplies. Fluorescence Polarization assays offer a number of significant benefits compared to traditional test methods:

Rapid

  • Unrivalled speed, with test completion in as little as a few seconds to less than one hour, depending upon the matrix of the system and the antibody or pathogen to be tested.
  • Requires no washing steps or long incubation

Easy

  • One-step solution
  • May be performed in laboratory or field setting
  • Few reagents required, and the reagents are provided in the test kits
  • Simple assays that do not require highly trained/skilled technicians to perform the tests

Accurate

  • Leading performance, yielding quantitative results for animal diseases and qualitative or quantitative results for food pathogens
  • Sensitivity and Specificity equivalent to or greater than other existing methods
  • Can detect pathogens at low parts per million (PPM) or parts per billion (PPB), depending upon the pathogen and matrix

Safe

  • Reagents used in FP assays are safe, requiring no use of dangerous acids or enzymes

Cost Effective

  • Rapid results mean more tests can be run in a shorter period of time than with traditional methods, resulting in the need for fewer technicians or permitting increases in throughput without additional staff
  • Rapid results may eliminate the need for costly repeat testing by veterinarians
  • Rapid results permit quick determination of contaminated incoming grain, avoiding cross-contamination with previously received grain at storage silos or grain elevators
  • Ease of use eliminates the need for highly trained, more costly technicians

Versatile

  • Can be applied to various matrices including serum, whole blood, milk, juices, and water
