Your Trusted Source for RUO Kits

ONBOARDx™ kits are assemblies of our PROCEEDx™ Research Use Only (RUO) products. They are helpful tools for verifying the performance of new test systems and training lab personnel. These non-infectious samples are perfect surrogates for hazardous patient samples to confirm the positive and negative detection of specific analytes. 

Microbix’s ONBOARDx™ kits are available in liquid form for refrigerated storage or at ambient temperature on Copan FLOQSwabs® containing various samples.

The ONBOARDx kits panel includes positive and negative samples to detect SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, influenza B, RSV, and HPV in liquid and swab formats. 

You can also design custom ONBOARDx™ kits with Microbix to evaluate assay performance.
