ViennaLab Diagnostics develops and manufactures innovative, easy-to-use human genetic diagnostic tests using membrane-based reverse hybridization and real-time PCR technologies. Single and low multiplex markers are targeted with RealFast™ Assays most efficiently. With StripAssays® up to 38 genetic variants can be analyzed simultaneously within a single working day. For comprehensive investigation of numerous genes we offer Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Assays in which bioinformatic analysis and report generation is already included in the package.

The complete range of ViennaLab products is available to you through HVD Life Sciences.



RealFast™ Assays

Based on real-time PCR, RealFast™ Assays are able to detect single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and copy number variations (CNVs) in an easy, fast and simple way.

Assays are available in two formats (32 and 100 reactions) and thus fit large-volume but also small laboratories. Furthermore, the assays are compatible with many real-time PCR instruments (e.g Biorad CFX96, Quantstudio 5, LightCycler 480,…) and include controls for wild type and mutant genotypes. All RealFast™ Assays are CE-IVD certified.

The unique, easy-to-use StripAssays® allow accurate detection of DNA variants including mutations, deletions, and insertions. . Protocols are identical for all StripAssays® allowing for a synchronized workflow.  All you need is low complexity instrumentation which is usually already available in every lab.
The turnaround time of these assays is less than 6 hours which indicates that within one working day the result is ready.
Results are easily interpreted by the naked eye. Alternatively, the combination of an off-the-shelf scanner and the StripAssay® Evaluator  software [REF 6-100] permits simple, automated scanning and interpretation of the processed teststrips with subsequent archiving of test results. ViennaLab StripAssays® are CE-IVD certified.

NGS Assays

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized many areas in science and healthcare, ranging from a better understanding of hereditary diseases and cancer, and implications in personalized medicine to improved taxonomic classification of microbial species. The ViennaLab NGS Assays employ target enrichment by either amplicon-based or hybridization capture techniques to optimally fulfill the needs of different applications.

The key feature of NGS-based kits is to generate quantitate and qualitative data in one assay, thanks to that you can save your time, money and precious sample. The hybridization capture assays were carefully designed to cover the whole coding sequence of the screened genes and allow detection of SNVs and InDels. ViennaLab also offers CNVs and fusions detection for some of the assays.

The abovementioned NGS assays are all-in-one solutions, providing necessary reagent for library preparation, user-friendly and intuitive bioinformatic solution and report generation.

A genetic predisposition is an often inherited genetic change which contributes to the development of a disease but does not directly cause it.
ViennaLab Diagnostics offers reliable assays for risk assessment prior to disease onset and early diagnosis.
