Pathogen Detection

Viral, Bacterial, Fungal and Parasite DNA

Sample type...

Respiratory swabs

Viral infections can be analyzed by taking oropharyngeal or nasopharyngeal swab samples.


Saliva collected by spitting in a tube is a non-invasive method of sample-collection

Serum, plasma or whole blood

Pathogenic DNA can be isolated from human plasma, serum or whole blood samples.


Tissue biopsies are sometimes necessary to detect pathogenic ailments


Urinary tract infections can be very well detected by testing collected urine.


Collected fecal matter can give a good insight in gut pathogenic diseases

MagSi-DX Pathogen is intended to be used for the isolation and purification of viral RNA for subsequent in-vitro diagnostic purposes. The kit can be used with human respiratory swabs and saliva. The kit is designed to be used with any downstream application with amplification and detection of viral RNA (in particular RT-qPCR, sequencing). The kit has been specifically validated for SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic workflows.

The MagSi-NA Pathogens kit allows cost-effective extraction of DNA and RNA from a variety of sample materials like whole blood, serum, plasma, oropharyngeal swab, nasopharyngeal swab, urine or feaces.

While saving money on extractions and PCR reactions, classic sample pooling will still dilute your samples and therefore cause less sensitive and false negative results. Our solution, MagSi-NA Pathogens Magnetic Sample Pooling (MSP) does not only save reagents, but maintains your test sensitivity as it pools in a sequential and non-dilutive manner.
