Your Portable Laboratory

We have had many beautiful fall days this year in Austin, Texas, but have also experienced rainfall at a record high. Heavy rain can affect water quality, and portable systems like the RDS-2500 system are perfect for in-the-field testing to provide immediate results.

Performing lateral flow test analysis outdoors or off-site can be a challenge with traditional lateral flow reader equipment. With Detekt's RDS-2500 reader, you won't find yourself running into that challenge.

The instrument comes equipped with a battery and highly ergonomic form factor for comfort during testing. At just over 1 lb, the RDS-2500 can go anywhere you want to test, so you can consider it your personal portable laboratory.

This Halloween, We Made Something Spooky

Detekt's suite of in-house 3D printers enables our team to create rapid prototypes and iterate product design ideas in just hours. This Halloween, we used our printers to make something a little spookier than usual by recreating Freddy Krueger's glove from A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Untitled design

The glove is functional and ready for primetime! The design is made out of feather-light nylon resin and was painted and post-processed to appear worn, just like the original in the movie.

Freddy is now ready to start testing using his RDS-2500!

One Size Doesn’t Always Fit All

Lateral Flow Cassettes

We recognize that different test requirements have varying cassette or cartridge needs. That's why Detekt works alongside our customers who develop and sell assays to provide guidance in prototyping and manufacturing housings suitable for their unique test and market application requirements.

The photo above demonstrates Detekt's suite of in-house 3D printed cassettes that can be used to dose lateral flow test strips and then analyze test results in the RDS-2500 reader. These cassette designs are optimized for a high degree of customization so that customers can quickly transition to using a reader with their test strip.

Regardless of test strip length or width, compatibility can be ensured with Detekt's custom development so your final testing solution suits your market's needs perfectly. If your business would benefit from customized cassettes or housings, reach out to the Detekt team to discuss your project requirements at info@idetekt.com.

“Beep!” for Error-Free Testing

Beep!

When each individual test result matters, data entry accuracy is critical. During high-throughput testing, data entry mistakes that occur can throw off test results in a spreadsheet, costing you time.

That’s why we added a front-facing camera to our RDS-2500.

It scans barcodes in mere milliseconds so you can add pertinent test information with the sound of a beep.

Add users, lots, samples, and quantitative curvesets. Even enable different testing modes or unlock functionality.

Whatever data entry you want to automate during testing, the RDS-2500 with its standard built-in scanner will make sure you get it right every time.

Testing Bovine Estrus Cycle Assay in Kenya

Non-profit group Diagnostics for All has developed a bovine estrus cycle assay for point of care testing in developing nations. Allowing farmers to quickly and accurately determine the ideal point in a cow’s cycle for artificial insemination, the new diagnostic test maximizes milk production and reduces the waiting time between pregnancies. Ultimately, farmers in rural areas can increase their agricultural productivity. 

In their recent trip to Eldoret, Kenya, Diagnostics for All used Detekt’s RDS-1500 PRO lateral flow system to objectively quantify test results in the field, reducing errors.
