GenMark Dx

ePlex - Transforming Multiplex Molecular Testing

For respiratory pathogens and blood culture ID. A simple to use, walkaway, sample-to-answer solution designed to deliver rapid, actionable results and improve efficiency within the laboratory as well as at the point of care.

GenMarkDX offer the most comprehensive respiratory and blood culture panels including resistance gene detection along with a bi-directional interface for rapid and secure patient results.

EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS

Software Designed to Improve Efficiency and Patient Care

While many systems claim sample-to-answer capabilities, only ePlex is able to integrate the entire process from order-to-report to better realise the patient and laboratory benefits of rapid, multiplex molecular diagnostics. ePlex offers a number of unique solutions that were thoughtfully engineered to address the biggest challenges facing the clinical laboratory and to support hospital systems in delivering patient centred, value-based care.

Access

Random and continuous access to the system

Testing

Add any test type at any time to the system

Fast

ePlex offers the shortest hands on time possible.

Scalable

Modular in design to allow simple expansion

Modular and Scalable to Meet the Demands of Any Institution

ePlex offers a modular and scalable design that means it is simple to increase testing capacity. With five different instrument configurations that range from 3 to 24 test bays, ePlex delivers consistent order-to-report service levels across institutions of any size. ePlex NP (Near Patient) brings syndromic testing closer to the patient at institutions running as few as 12 patient samples per shift. The ePlex 4 Tower configuration outpaces any sample-to-answer platform in some of the world’s largest diagnostic laboratories.

Electrowetting Technology

Electrowetting is a digital microfluidic technology that allows movement of fluid to enable rapid thermal cycling for fast time to result.

Electrowetting uses electrical fields to directly manipulate discrete droplets on the surface of a hydrophobically coated printed circuit board (PCB). Droplets of sample and reagents are moved in a programmable fashion and can be efficiently transferred and transported within a network of contiguous electrodes. Other operations such as merging, splitting, dispensing and mixing of droplets can be performed using the same principles.

Watch the process in action below.

eSensor Technology

GenMark’s eSensor technology is based on the principles of competitive DNA hybridization and electrochemical detection. eSensor technology is highly specific for the target biomarker and is not based on fluorescent or optical detection. As a result, diagnostic tests are less prone to sample contamination risk and do not require time-consuming washing and preparation steps.
