Sample Preparation for Viral Diagnostics using the Microlab STAR
30 Jul 2013
Testing for avian influenza and bovine virus diarrhea is an increasing challenge for veterinarian labs. This application note from Hamilton Robotics describes how the Microlab STAR liquid handling platform is used for automated isolation of viral RNA using the NucleoSpin® 96 Virus kit from MACHEREY-NAGEL. This enables large numbers of samples to be tested quickly for avian influenza and bovine virus diarrhea.
