"You can set it running and then walk away but, there is too much time spent on cleaning. However it is easy to use and functions within a very good time frame."
Automates sample preparation in preparation for amplification and detection
Automates the sample preparation steps of real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for analysis on the COBAS® TaqMan® Analyzers.
This instrument operates with robotic precision to dramatically reduce hands-on time and enhance user productivity. It can be used for diagnostic applications and for screening pools of blood donations in clinical laboratories.
This instrument is available as a standalone device, or as part of an automated blood screening system or fully automated diagnostic system.
