Instrument For Lab-On-Chip (LOC)


Veredus Laboratories manufacture and market the VerePLEX™ Biosystem and LOC panel of detection kits to provide a multiplexed PCR amplification with microarray detection for applications in bio-surveillance, biological threat detection, pathogen detection from human, food and water sources, and custom testing markets.

Veredus Laboratories empower innovative testing capabilities with random access for on-demand testing when laboratories need to identify the source agent fast in unknown situations such as a biothreat outbreak or food poisoning outbreak. It requires only a small sample volume for the sensitive detection and identification of nucleic acids and toxin genes of many pathogens and biothreat agents within the same test.
