Complete molecular biology solution for transplant testing needs

The ARGENE® SOLUTION covers all transplant testing needs and creates seamless lab workflow. Discover the Power of One for transplant testing needs.

  • Automate your sample extraction from a wide variety of sample types
  • Automate your PCR setup for improved standardization
  • Automate your testing for transplant patients with ready to use Real-Time PCR assays

High quality diagnostic testing is important for transplant patients at every step of the process. It is used to help assess donor-recipient compatibility, prevent and/or control infection, and adapt immunosuppressive therapy as necessary. Transplant patient care is complicated – patients are at risk for a wide range of viral infections, and various different sample types may be used. The ARGENE® SOLUTION was designed to provide the Power of One to cut down on complication and meet transplant testing needs. Reliable, same-day results support clinicians make better treatment decisions for more successful recoveries for transplant patients.
