LightMix® Modular Assays

LightMix® Modular Assays
Simple but elegant concept with numerous benefits

Modular in design, the LightMix® Modular Assays enable you to create a pathogen detection panel just right for you. Whether it’s a hexaplex or a single assay, the LightMix® Modular Assays are changing the paradigm for pathogen detection.

You decide

Select from a wide range of ready-to-use individual assays for pathogen detection – Test only what you want to test.

You create

Design a custom panel for your needs and grow your menu by including new targets – Add rare or emerging pathogens as you find fit.

You expand

Increase throughput and improve workflow efficiency by simultaneously detecting up to 5 targets plus 1 control in a Single Well – Multiplex to your needs.


Effortless integration leading to complete solutions

Developed with clinically relevant targets in mind, the LightMix® Modular assays are compatible with Roche Instruments, Master Mixes and Controls to give you a streamlined, efficient workflow.
