Timely diagnosis of one sick animal can help ensure the health of an entire herd, protect a producer's livelihood, and safeguard a lab's business. Workflow optimization helps you stay ahead of the evolving disease landscape, but introducing changes can result in adding unwanted costs and complexities to a diagnostic testing environment.
Easily integrated into any workflow, our proprietary VetMAX™ Xeno™ Internal Positive Control (IPC) products offer labs a verification layer to help ensure that the qPCR test results delivered to their customers are accurate and actionable, by helping to eliminate costly false negatives and the potential for false positive signals.
Recommended in AAVLD guidelines, the Xeno IPC is a component of our USDA-licensed VetMAX™-Gold kits. The Xeno IPC assay has been successfully benchmarked against millions of genomes including those relevant to animal health diagnostics.
Available as individual IPCs and assays, our portfolio of solutions includes RNA and DNA IPCs, compatible with VIC™ and LIZ™ dye channels, as well as kit options to support a wide range of low- and high-throughput requirements.
Easily integrated into most diagnostic testing environments, Xeno IPC solutions can be used with Applied Biosystems™ workflow products as well as other commercial master mixes, sample prep kits, and lab-prepared assays.
Include Xeno IPC in the lysis solution used for nucleic acid isolation, to serve as a positive control for recovery of nucleic acid. Add the Xeno IPC and Xeno IPC Assay in the qPCR reaction setup as an amplification control.
Recommended in the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnostics (AAVLD) guidelines, VetMAX Xeno IPC offers veterinary labs rapid, reliable, and easy-to-use solutions for qualifying the effectiveness and accuracy of their qPCR workflows.
Available as a la carte IPC and multiple dye-channel format assays, products in this flexible portfolio are easily integrated into most lab workflows. Click below to view our new white paper and learn how easy it can be to incorporate Xeno IPC and assays in qPCR workflows.
This application note details the performance of Xeno Internal Positive Controls (IPC) with variable thermal cycling conditions and enzymes. The quantitative PCR (qPCR) experiments were performed to provide data showing whether Xeno IPC is capable of amplifying effectively when multiplexed with complex assays using a variety of master mixes, as well as a range of annealing temperatures and times. These conditions were meant to replicate a variety of common scenarios at animal health molecular testing labs.
Our vision is to provide comprehensive solutions to help diagnose farm animal health issues more quickly and accurately than ever before—and thereby enhance animal health and productivity. To learn more about our VetMAX Xeno IPC solutions:
