mariPOC® product family covers seven different test plate products to meet various needs. For example, selecting Combi test plate during influenza season allows testing pharyngitis (Pharyn test) and influenza-like illnesses (Respi test) in continuous-feed and random-access mode. One plate allows multianalyte testing of tens of patient samples. This makes mariPOC® easier to use compared to, for example, fast nucleic acid amplification based test products where each new sample requires to add a separate test cartridge.
The pathogen-specific reagents are dried into reaction wells of the test plate. The reaction wells are covered with a patented multilayer cover tape that protects the reagents before use and holds the reaction solution in the wells after dispensing.
