Effective Molecular Diagnostics
In Multiplex, we have the mission of developing effective molecular diagnostics technologies for plant phytosanitation.We are experts in multiplex PCR, high-through sequencing and bioinformatic analysis for viral and viroid diagnosis, and we want to bring these technologies to real-world applications.Viral and viroid diagnosis from high-throughput sequencing data is a challenging task. We have studied the issues involved in implementing these technologies and developed Viroscope, an algorithm for functional plant viral and viroid detection from HTS data with high diagnostic certainty.
Our technology provides functional detection of viruses, describing potential infectivity of present pathogens.
By correlating viral genome coverage with aspects of viral biology, we have obtained objective detection criteria to differentiate viral presence from experimental noise.
Performance metrics shows that our method enables high sensitivity and specificity of detection with negligible false discovery rate.
We use state-of-the-art robotic platforms with in-house developed protocols for scalable deployment and cost-effective library preparation.
We use high-throughput sequencing platforms to reach unprecedented sensitivity of detection.
Our proprietary bioinformatic algorithms enable precise detection of pathogens and discern their capacity for infection.
