The Bio-Seeq PLUS is a portable high precision instrument that detects trace levels of specific biological warfare agent (BWA) threats, both bacterial and viral, through DNA replication. It utilises LATE-PCR™ (Linear After the Exponential Polymerase Chain Reaction) technology for enhanced detection and identification
reliability and capability.
The instrument software is designed for users with little to no experience with biological testing. Easy to follow prompts guide users through the entire analysis process. The unit contains a membrane keyboard with extra large keys allowing the unit to be used with protective gloves.
Optimised for use as a confirmatory technique in field testing, the Bio-Seeq PLUS is critical to missions when BWA is suspected.
The Bio-Seeq PLUS is backed by first-rated service, training and support to ensure optimum product performance.
Smiths Detection is a leading worldwide provider of advanced security solutions and government regulated technology products to detect and identify chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) material and other dangerous or illegal substances.
