Milenia Biotec offers various lateral flow tests: for immun­odi­ag­nostic use, for the detection of spoiling germs in beer and juice and for research use.

The IVD systems help to carefully and rapidly diagnose various diseases. The results are the base  for a targeted thera­peutic approach. Therefore unnec­essary therapies or hospital admis­sions can be saved.

The detection of beer and juice spoiling germs is made easy with our tests. Here we follow the innov­ative approach designed for the research area: PCR and lateral flow combined.

In the research area, we offer innov­ative products for the fast detection of labeled amplicons and antibody appli­ca­tions.

Our tests are very simple to run and can be done at every location. For the calcu­lation of results only minimal equipment is required. The lateral flow technology, on which our  assays are based,  allows testing without any instru­men­tation!

Development of a nucleic acid based COVID-19 Rapid Test

Amplicon detection via the lateral flow test Milenia “HybriDetect”

Recently Milenia Biotec GmbH received several customer inquiries related to COVID-​​19 detection, due to the fact, that HybriDetect may be used for the detection of RPA, LAMP or PCR amplicons. Following up these inquiries, we did a liter­ature search on the SHERLOCK (Specific High Sensi­tivity Enzymatic Reporter UnLOCKing) technique, which is a powerful tool to detect genetic infor­mation coming from viruses using CRISPR.

What is HybriDetect?

The HybriDetect is a lateral flow dipstick (LFD), which is capable to detect different molecules, including gene ampli­fi­cation products, proteins and antibodies. A commonly used appli­cation for our test is the detection of gene ampli­fi­cation products resulting from PCR, LAMP or RPA. The under­lying genetic infor­mation can be detected regardless which kind of organism need to be detected.Finally, labeled primers must be intro­duced in the ampli­fi­cation step, so that the resulting fragments are labeled and can be detected by the HybriDetect dipstick.

Results can be reported within 5 minutes after lines become visible on the test strip.
