Learn more about Invader Chemistry

The Invader® chemistry platform, is a homogeneous, isothermal, DNA probe-based system for highly sensitive, quantitative detection of specific nucleic acid sequences. It is an accurate and specific method for detecting single-base pair changes, insertions, deletions, gene copy number, infectious agents, and gene expression. Invader reactions can be performed using genomic DNA or on amplified RNA, PCR or RT-PCR products. The Invader process amplifies a target-specific signal but not the target itself.1
