Technology (BioFire FilmArray Platform)



The FilmArray System is an FDA, CE-IVD, and TGA certified multiplex PCR system that integrates sample preparation, amplification, detection and analysis. This simple system requires just 2 minutes of hands-on time, with a total run time of about an hour-you get fast results to assist in better patient care.

The FilmArray system enables simultaneous testing for bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites and/or antimicrobial resistant genes. It is designed to be used with comprehensive panels that each offer testing for sets of pathogens associated with some of today's most pressing healthcare challenges. The system is particularly relevant in complex diagnostic situations that require answers in a critically short period of time so that physicians can make appropriate treatment decisions.
