NASBA is fast!

  • NASBA is similar to PCR (polymerase chain reaction) in that the target nucleic acid is replicated or amplified. NASBA is faster than PCR for 2 reasons:
  • NASBA amplifies mRNA, which occurs as thousands of copies per cell. PCR targets DNA which exists as a single copy per cell
  • NASBA is isothermal. PCR requires temperature cycling to uncoil the double helix of DNA
  • NASBA can yield positive results in 10 – 30 minutes compared to ~24 hours for PCR

NASBA targets living cells!

  • NASBA targets mRNA, present only in living cells and only when genes are being expressed. PCR detects DNA in living and dead cells.

NASBA does not rely on cultures!

  • Many micro-organisms cannot be cultured, and so are not detected with classical methods. NASBA tests all the microorganisms that are present in the sample

NASBA is quantitative!

  • Internal controls in our tests allow for excellent quantification

NASBA is easy to use!

  • Our specialty is making easy to use test kits and instrumentation for point of use by non laboratory professionals.
