Frost & Sullivan Recognizes iCubate for Developing the New Gold Standard Instrument in the PCR Market
Date:3/22/2012

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of new products within the life sciences market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes iCubate with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Innovation. iCubate has developed the new version of a "gold standard" polymerase chain reaction (PCR) instrument. The revolutionary instrument has the ability to perform simple extraction, amplification, and detection, all in a multiplexed, automated, and closed system. Given the potential for this platform to be used in both research and clinical laboratory settings in the future, iCubate is poised for significant growth as it gains awareness in the marketplace.

"Academic and diagnostic researchers like the ability to multiplex their PCR reactions, but as long as the assay remains open to the air, contamination will occur and skew results," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst, Christi Bird. "The iCubate platform resolves this issue, integrating all PCR steps in an entirely closed instrument with very little hands-on time and virtually no chance for assay contamination."

The iCubate platform consists of the iC-Cassette™, iC-Processor™, iC-Reader™, and iC-Report™ Software. At the heart of the technology is the single-use iC-Cassette™, which comes preloaded with all reagents needed for detection and amplification of a sample. The design of the iC-Cassette™ also ensures that high concentration amplicons contained in the assay do not contaminate a laboratory and, thus, other reactions. Each iC-Cassette™ contains an assay-specific barcode on the outside, which informs the iC-Reader™ and iC-Processor™ which assay protocol is required and how to report the results.

iC-Cassettes™ will be available preloaded with multiplex panels for viral and bacterial respiratory diseases, flu strains, Staph infections, STDs, bacteria involved in diarrhea,
