The Q-linea platform employs padlock or proximity ligation probes directed towards specific nucleic acid sequence motifs or surface epitopes for detection, identification and quantification of pathogens. This approach ensures high analytical sensitivity and selectivity in combination with minimal cross reactivity enabling multiplexed assay formats.
Reacted probes are detected using Q-linea's amplified single molecule detection approach. This involves converting individual target recognition events into fluorescent micrometer-sized DNA molecules which are amenable to optical detection and enumeration in Q-linea's dedicated instrument.
