PathoFinder - Syndromic Multiplex PCR Panels




Despite the developments in conventional PCR, the complexity of multiplex real-time PCR is still limited due to the lack of sufficient detection channels. To achieve high-end multiplexing capacity on standard real-time PCR machines, PathoFinder has developed the SmartFinder® technology. It enables Single-tube Multiplex Amplification in Real-Time (SMART) of up to 24 infectious pathogens with the same sensitivity as monoplex real-time PCR.


The detection of the amplified FAM labelled probes is by melting curve analysis on a real-time PCR system. Twelve detection probes, either ROX or Cy5 labelled and varying in melting temperature, enable specific detection of the amplified product and the corresponding pathogen.


Currently PathoFinder offers 4 syndromic disease panels:

  • – RespiFinder® 2SMART (24 pathogens causing respiratory infections) NEW: including SARS-CoV-2 and MERS
  • – GastroFinder® 2SMART (18 pathogens causing gastro-intestinal infections)
  • – MeningoFinder® 2SMART (22 pathogens causing CNS infections)
  • – STD-Finder® 2SMART (9 most important pathogens causing STD’s)
