CBRN Defense

Our highly multiplexed Biowarfare Agent Identification Panel detects and differentiates 14 biowarfare agents to protect allied forces against major agents of biosecurity concern. This test, combined with our Franklin™ three9 ISP Thermocycler, helps determine which areas are contaminated by which type of CBRN bio-agent(s) in about an hour.

Biological Warfare Agent Identification Panel*

14 Biowarfare agents targeted

  • Bacillus anthracis
  • Botulinum neurotoxin A
  • Botulinum neurotoxin B
  • Brucella species
  • Burkholdera mallei
  • Burkholdera pseudomallei
  • Coxiella burnetii
  • Francisella tularensis
  • Orthopox viruses
  • Ricin toxin gene
  • Staphylococcal enterotoxin B gene
  • Variola virus

Biological Warfare Training Panel*

Keep current on your test sampling and running techniques. These cartridges contain all the items needed to provide training for real-world scenarios. The training cartridge is a single-use mock test cartridge that looks and functions like an authentic ISP test cartridge, but does not contain expensive, short-lived reagents.
