BART (Bioluminescent Assay in Real-Time) is a novel reporter system, exclusive to Lumora, which is designed to be used with isothermal nucleic acid amplification technologies - primarily as a tool in molecular diagnostics.
The simplicity of BART enables easy-to-use, affordable, robust hardware to be used. This is a major break-through as molecular diagnostics are typically associated with complexity and expense.
BART causes the sample itself to emit light when a test result is positive, making the technology extraordinarily simple to implement. What's more, as the BART assay emits plenty of light, there is also no need for highly sensitive light detection apparatus :– the result is the simplest, most robust hardware solution for real-time molecular diagnostics ever developed.
