The genesig® q16 offers RNA and DNA detection of viral, parasitic, bacterial and fungal pathogen detection

The genesig q16 is a RNA and DNA detection instrument which offers direct identification of pathogens affecting all fish and shellfish species. The health and wellbeing of aquaculture life-stock needs to be treated with the utmost importance.

Those animals infected with harmful organisms need quick and easy detection for rapid treatment. Luckily all pathogens leave a fingerprint in the shape of RNA and DNA which will help identify them. Quick RNA and DNA detection will ensure a significant reduction in animals’ suffering, improve livestock yield and attempt to maintain health.

Why should you try a genesig q16 to test aquaculture species pathogens?

  • Quick and simple testing for rapid diagnosis
  • Appropriate for any experience levels
  • Technical support to match and assist throughout
  • Very simple to implement in-house
  • Very small instrument so will not require large space
  • The genesig q16 can be used ANYWHERE (e.g. at the hatchery; no centralised laboratory required)

Why is fast and simple pathogen detection important?

  • Reported that around $6 billion of aquaculture livestock are lost every year globally, to disease problems
  • The genesig q16 could significantly reduce this number if used effectively
  • Some disease prevention is time sensitive and therefore, with the fast detection speed, it should allow for rapid treatment

Why choose genesig q16 over alternatives, such as traditional microbiology and outsourcing testing?

There are benefits for both methods but a clear winner is in the shape of genesig q16. It’s a quick and uncomplicated system, yet still provides superiority in performance.
