Luminis Partners with Hyris to bring on-site qPCR testing to the AgTech industry

Luminis Water Technologies, a leader in Next Gen microbiome and molecular solutions, announces its partnership with Hyris, a global, innovation-based biotechnology company leader in the field of portable diagnostics. The collaboration aims to bring on-site qPCR diagnostics to the aquaculture market, enabling customers to quickly and accurately test for pathogens, viruses, and bacteria without having to send samples in and wait for lab results, thus keeping Luminis firmly inline with its vision.
Luminis Water Technoloiges Mission Statement

A Game Changer for the Industry

Luminis has successfully solved the major hurdle with field diagnostics which is the ability to extract DNA from samples accurately and reliably. Together with Luminis on-site qPCR molecular assay kits and the Hyris PCR machine, operations can now perform tests right at their facility, eliminating the need for sending samples to distant labs. This gives farmers the ability to quickly diagnose problems and make more informed decisions. On-site testing can be done with minimal training and no extra equipment making qPCR indicative testing easily accessible and affordable for operations of all sizes.

On-Site pPCR Indicative Testing Benefits Include:

  • Fast turnaround time: From sample to answer in less than 2 hours
  • Reduced costs: On-site testing eliminates the need for expensive lab equipment and reduces transportation costs associated with sending samples to a lab.
  • Fully validated: The system provides highly accurate results, reducing the risk of misdiagnosis and false positives.
  • Easy to Use: The system is user-friendly, requiring minimal training to operate, and can be used in any setting.

Statement from Rachelle Jensen, CEO of Luminis Water Technologies

“We are excited to partner with Hyris to bring on-site qPCR indicative testing to the aquaculture market. Our clients can now quickly and accurately test for pathogens and total  bacterial loads which ultimately improves the overall health and productivity of their operations. We believe that this will be a game-changer for the industry, and we are excited to see the positive impact it will have on aquaculture.”

Statement from Stefano Lo Priore, CEO of Hyris

“This partnership with Luminis confirms Hyris’ commitment to enable more and more players in access the genetic testing arena. Thanks to its miniaturisation and AI-driven features, the Hyris System™ is the ideal platform to support partners in developing their solution.”
