    Customer Reviews

    "We have used the illumipro-10 from Meridian Bioscience since June 2015, on which we perform the analysis of B. pertussis, M. pneumoniae and toxigenic CDIFF by isothermal LAMP. Since this date we have completed around 700 analyses. The instrument is compact, requires hardly any maintenance and the technique is easy to use and rapid. We rarely have invalids. This technique is altogether simple to use, rapid and robust. We are very pleased to use this technology on a daily basis. Thanks to two independent blocks, the illumipro-10 offers a fast response (result) to clinicians and enables two different analyses to be carried out at the same time. The analysis time to obtain a result is less than one hour."
