Benefits of Quidel® Lyra™ Kits
Features Benefits
One-step reagent preparation Just add rehydration solution to the lyophilized master mix and pipette it into the assay plate.
Simplified storage requirements The kits are designed for refrigerator storage (2–8°C) and have up to a 2-year shelf life from date of manufacture.
Room-temperature setup The assay is set up at room temperature; no ice or cooling blocks are required.
Rapid results Assay results are typically available less than 75 minutes after extraction of the sample (60 minutes for the Direct C. difficile Assay).
Common internal control All Quidel® Lyra™ kits use a common internal PCR control and common cycling parameters, which allows extracted samples to be assayed with any of the other Quidel® Lyra™ kits and also allows different assays to be run on the same plate
Flexible format Kits include 12 x 8 vials of master mix, rehydration solution, and liquid process controls.
Regulatory The kits conform to GMP, CE-IVD, and FDA requirements.
