Advantages of STAR Technology

Real-time PCR has become the industry standard of nucleic acid based molecular diagnostics because of its superior sensitivity and specificity, laboratory workflow and turn around time as well as the availability of numerous platforms and reagents. The drawback of real-time PCR however, is the limitation in terms of multiplexing capability. PrimeraDx’s STAR technology solves this limitiation by combining PCR and capillary electrophoresis detection and allowing simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 60 targets in a single PCR reaction. This uniquely positions STAR technology for single tube measurement for various applications such as Gene Expression panels, microRNA panels, DNA Methylation panels, SNP panels or pathogen load panels..

STAR Technology Advantages:

  • Single tube quantitative measurement of up to 60 nucleic acid targets
  • Controls and standard in each individual test sample
  • Cost reduction by minimizing reagent use
  • Simple walk away workflow
  • Flexibility in assay development
  • Broad applicability


PrimeraDx will leverage this technology to address key market opportunities in infectious disease and oncology with differentiated products.
