Bed Bugs

Bed Bug DNA Detection by PCR

Now Available at SGS Forensic Laboratories

Early detection of bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) is critical in preventing a localized bed bug problem from growing into multi-room infestations. Bed Bug DNA Detection presents a new tool to detect emerging bed bug infestations.

When bed bugs grow from egg to adult they shed DNA-containing exoskeleton. SGS Forensic Laboratories had a bed bug specific DNA probe developed that can detect these minute bed bug parts in samples taken by either vacuuming or swabbing surfaces.

Analysis is species-specific, sensitive, and fast: Sampling only takes minutes and presence/absence results are obtainable within 24 hours.

Catch emerging bed bug infestations early through our easy and efficient Bed Bug DNA Detection. It's as simple as taking a dust sample. Contact us today for more information.
