Lincoln, Nebraska-based Materials and Machines Corporation, also known as MatMaCorp, has launched a rapid handheld molecular testing instrument called MY Real-Time Analyzer, or MYRTA, that performs PCR amplification or isothermal amplification and simultaneous real-time fluorescence detection. The device weighs less than one pound, can be held in one hand during operation, and can detect DNA or RNA targets within one hour, according to MatMaCorp. MYRTA can also process one sample with up to three different tests, and provides near quantitative information, including a Ct value.
