Assays & Reagents

ELITechGroup Molecular Diagnostics provides molecular labs an advanced alternative for real-time PCR based assays. By leveraging the benefits of our proprietary chemistries, such as the Minor Groove Binder (MGB), SuperBases™ and Eclipse® Dark Quencher technologies, our assays feature shorter, overlapping probes that efficiently and accurately detect target DNA sequences, while offering greater sensitivity, specificity and low background fluorescence levels. Additionally, our MGB probes remain intact following PCR enabling melt curve analysis so that specificity and accuracy of the quantitative analysis can be routinely assessed.

ELITechGroup Molecular Diagnostics has developed numerous assays in partnership with clinical and research laboratories as well as other life science and diagnostics companies around the world. These assays are now available either as part of our portfolio of MGB ALERT® ASRs or through our custom detection mix development and manufacturing service.



Zika ELITe MGB® Kit U.S. – EUA

Easier and faster molecular solution for Zika testing

Zika infections are considered as a significant public health challenge at the international level. In the US and its territories, up to 40,000 travel associated and locally acquired mosquito-borne cases have been reported.1

Zika ELITe MGB® Kit U.S. is a real-time PCR assay for the detection of Zika virus in plasma and serum samples. In combination with ELITe InGenius®, a fully automated sample-to-result system, the Zika ELITe MGB® Kit U.S. offers unique benefits in terms of ease-of-use and time-to-result in comparison to other Emergency Use Authorization assays.
