The Promise of Illumigene

The Promise of illumi
gene® empowers your lab with the speed and accuracy of molecular testing.

illumigene® delivers the power of molecular technology in a simplified and affordable format. Meridian Bioscience has employed Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) technology to design and manufacture the illumipro-10™, a compact, automated detection system with a very simple assay process that is the heart of illumigene®. Based on feedback from hundreds of laboratory professionals, illumigene® is the molecular diagnostic system clinical labs have been waiting for.

Learn more about innovative LAMP technology

illumigene® is:
  • Simple procedure with a smaller footprint
  • Faster and More Flexible
  • More cost-effective
illumigene® makes it possible for any laboratory—regardless of space, personnel, or budget limitations—to implement molecular diagnostic capabilities.

Simpler and Smaller
The simple 7-step sample preparation process takes less than 2 minutes of hands-on time per sample. The illumipro-10™ offers walk-away automation. When you place the sample into the illumipro-10™ and press the “run” button, your work is done.

With illumigene® there is:
  • No centrifugation, precision pipetting
  • No thermal cycling
  • No gel electrophoresis
The illumipro-10:
  • Has a very small footprint—approximately the size of an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper
  • Internal and external keyboard as well as an internal bar code reader for flexible sample ID entry
  • Provides continuous access while running up to 10 samples at a time in 2 independent 5-sample chambers
  • Does not require an auxiliary computer

Faster and More Flexible
Because there is no thermal cycling, illumigene® can provide results for up to 10 samples in less than an hour. Results are displayed directly on the illumipro-10™ LED readout screen and can be printed out on the system printer. illumigene® integrates easily into any facility, regardless of work volume or staff experience:
  • Flexibility to stop and restart the assay procedure
  • Adaptable to single sample or batch processing
  • Optional work station adapts to any user or work flow
More Cost Effective
illumigene® allows your lab to add molecular diagnostics without additional costs for labor, training, and capital equipment. In your lab, illumigene® means:
  • Less than 2 minutes hands-on time per sample
  • Minimal labor requirement
  • Low maintenance with no additional service costs and 24-hour equipment replacement
  • Reduced waste disposal costs from environmentally friendly, mercury-free process

Add illumigene® Capability to Your Lab
illumigene® is revolutionary technology that is simple, fast, and affordable. It puts molecular diagnostics within the reach of every lab. Illumigene Capabilities
