Nucleic Acid Detection at Codexis

Nucleic Acid Detection

Building robust diagnostic tools

Nucleic acid detection methods such as qPCR/RT-qPCR or LAMP/RT-LAMP are valuable diagnostic tools which rely on enzymes to amplify a range of starting samples. Effective and rapid amplification of samples allows questions to be answered faster, and engineered enzymes can enhance the performance of these workflows, working with degraded or low amounts of starting samples.

Enzymes for nucleic acid detection

With enzymes that have been tailored for real-world laboratory and physiological conditions such as Codex® HiRev Isothermal Polymerase or Codex® HiTemp Reverse Transcriptase, achieve faster time to results under a wider range of challenging conditions.

Codex® HiRev Isothermal DNA Polymerase

Faster and more sensitive RT-LAMP reactions

Perform RT-LAMP reactions with a single enzyme - quickly and across a range of challenging conditions, such as low copy numbers and the presence of several common inhibitors.
