QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US)

For in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use in performing FDA cleared or approved nucleic acid testing in clinical laboratories

  • IVD workflow optimization and utility
  • Maximized ease-of-use and convenience

QIAGEN's premier sample-to-result in vitro diagnostic workflow solution comprises the QIAsymphony SP, QIAsymphony AS, and Rotor-Gene Q MDx instruments, and Rotor-Gene AssayManager software. QIAsymphony SP/AS is an integrated automated system for performing sample preparation using QIAsymphony DSP (Diagnostic Sample Prep) Kits and subsequent assay setups. Rotor-Gene Q MDx is a real-time nucleic acid amplification and detection system that measures nucleic acid signals from amplified DNA using fluorescent detection. Rotor-Gene AssayManager software performs automated analysis and data interpretation and is used in combination with QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) instruments to perform FDA cleared or approved nucleic acid testing. QIAGEN plans to expand the capabilities of QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) with new features, IVD assay menus, and workflows.

The QIAsymphony RGQ MDx system is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use in performing FDA cleared or approved nucleic acid testing in clinical laboratories. It comprises the QIAsymphony SP, QIAsymphony AS, and Rotor-Gene Q MDx instruments. The QIAsymphony SP is an automated system for performing sample preparation for nucleic acid testing. The QIAsymphony AS is an automated system for performing assay setups for nucleic acid testing. The Rotor-Gene Q MDx is a real-time nucleic acid amplification and detection system which measures nucleic acid signals from amplified DNA using fluorescent detection.



Principle

QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) can save you time by processing as many as 72 samples, from sample to result, in one integrated run.

QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) is the integrated system to maximize your efficiency and optimize your IVD workflows, from sample to result. QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) synergizes the automated sample preparation and assay setup on the QIAsymphony SP/AS with manual transfer to the Rotor-Gene Q MDx for detection. The QIAsymphony SP, together with the QIAsymphony DSP Virus/Pathogen Kits, automates sample preparation and the QIAsymphony AS delivers reliable and reproducible IVD assay setup. Rotor-Gene AssayManager provides fully automated analysis and interpretation of results, minimizes human error, and delivers results you can trust.

Kits currently available in the US for use with the QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US)
Kits Instrument Method
QIAsymphony DSP Virus/Pathogen Kits QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) Purification of bacterial DNA from a variety of sample types
artus C. difficile QS-RGQ MDx Kit QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) Direct qualitative detection of toxigenic C. difficile toxin A and toxin B genes

Procedure

The QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) workflow starts with purification of nucleic acids on the QIAsymphony SP instrument. The eluates, containing purified nucleic acids from the sample preparation procedure, are automatically transferred to the QIAsymphony AS module, which performs assay setup. The assays are then manually transferred to the Rotor-Gene Q MDx for real-time amplification, detection, and data analysis.

Applications

The QIAsymphony RGQ MDx (US) is the platform for performing FDA cleared or approved nucleic acid tests.

Future applications will focus on:

  • Menu expansion for pathogen detection 
  • Tests for personalized healthcare  
  • Pharma co-developed tests
