Obtaining reliable results with patient samples is paramount to ensuring accurate and timely diagnosis. Automation in nucleic acid extraction and setup of downstream assays not only reduces hands-on time but eliminates sample variations due to human error, increasing the reliability and efficiency of clinical molecular workflows. However, issues may arise when implementing automation across different samples types such as plasma, blood, urine, saliva, feces, swabs etc.
PerkinElmer is pleased to bring you this webinar which goes over the key factors influencing the quality of automated DNA/RNA extraction and features workflows including pathogen (HPV, SARS-CoV-2, metabiome, bacterial) and genetic (cfDNA-based) testing. Novel data obtained with the new IVD-marked* chemagic™ Prime™ Junior-D instrument for medium-throughput demands will also be shared.
Key learning objectives:
Attend the live webinar on Thursday, September 23, at either of the following times:
