Benefits of Quidel® Diagnostic Kits

Features Benefits
One-step reagent preparationJust add rehydration solution to the lyophilized master mix and pipette it into the assay plate
Simplified storage requirementsThe kits are designed for refrigerator storage (2–8°C) and have up to a 2-year shelf life from date of manufacture
Room-temperature setupThe assay is setup at room temperature; no ice or cooling blocks are required
Rapid resultsAssay results are typically available in less than 75 minutes after extraction of the sample (60 minutes for the Direct C. difficile Assay)
Common internal controlAll Quidel® kits use a common internal PCR control and common cycling parameters, which allows extracted samples to be assayed with any of the Quidel® kits and also allows different assays to be run on the same plate
Regulatory—the kits conform to GMP, CE-IVD, and FDA requirements (Not all Quidel® diagnostic kits are available in the US: see individual products for details.)
Flexible formatKits include vials of 12 x 8 master mix, rehydration solution, and liquid process controls
