Trinean to manufacture and supply the QIAxpert - a micro-volume spectrometer for DNA and RNA quantitation and quality analysis.

Trinean has announced that it has entered into a manufacturing and supply agreement with QIAGEN for the production of the QIAxpert, a micro-volume spectrometer for DNA and RNA quantitation and quality analysis.

This platform is a UV/VIS spectrophotometer which contains tailor-made solution for QIAGEN customers using QIAGEN’s DNA and RNA sample technologies and devices for quality control applications.

“We are very pleased with this agreement between QIAGEN and Trinean,” comments Philippe Stas, CEO of Trinean. "Adoption of our technology by QIAGEN, the market leader in DNA and RNA sample technologies, is an important new step in the global validation of our innovative take on UV-VIS spectroscopy.”

“Quality control (QC) is becoming increasingly important in nucleic acid based testing as novel detection technologies become more and more sensitive.” Dietrich Hauffe, Senior VP ,Head of Business Area Life Sciences at QIAGEN adds.

“The QIAxpert system provides a unique combination of accurate quantification and the capability to discriminate between molecules of interest. The system allows us to match high-performance sample technologies, in particular isolation, extraction and purification with high-speed spectrophotometry for confirmatory purposes. It will contribute to superior data output across all analytical workflows using DNA or RNA, from PCR to next generation sequencing. QIAxpert can also allow our customers to make better informed decisions with regards to usage of samples in subsequent downstream processes, reducing the risk of repeat experiments. These benefits can result in significant time and cost savings while at the same time increasing the quality of data output with significant advantages in research, applied and clinical markets.”

“This agreement significantly boosts the market reach of our spectrometry technology”, said Yvan Sergeant, VP Commercial Operations of Trinean. “It combines microfluidics with innovative spectral content profiling software for accurate quantitation of biological samples and further illustrates the importance of our ability to have a sound purity check of biological samples prior to any genetic test.”

The QIAxpert is a customized version of the Xpose reader, launched by Trinean early 2013. The platform redefines manual UV/VIS quantification into a convenient, high speed solution. The drop and read approach avoids time-consuming sample loading and cleaning steps thereby minimizing the hands-on time on the reader.

The full-color touch screen gives single touch access to advanced analytical software, including dye-free specific quantification of DNA, RNA or protein in samples containing interfering components, using Trinean’s proprietary algorithms for UV/VIS spectral deconvolution.
