Good but needs more improvement.
Application Area: Molecular PCR
"Hologic Panther Fusion could have been a great instrument if it didn't crash so often."
Add on the power to run real-time PCR, TMA and RT-TMA assays on a single, fully automated platform. With the Panther Fusion® module you can consolidate testing, increase walkaway time and enhance flexibility.
Up to 32 assay reagent kits on board, which allow assay consolidation on a single platform
Ready-to-use reagent cartridges reduce manual preparation and operator errors
Sample throughput up to 500 tests in 8 hours increases test volume in a shift without increasing staff
Minimal hardware/software changes allow additional testing without extensive retraining or SOP updates
Open Access™ functionality provides full automation to run laboratory developed tests with IVDs
Time-to-first result at 2.4 hours allows patient results to be released sooner and improves turnaround time
Run up to 5 PCR reactions from a single (360μL) patient extraction, reducing extraction time and costs
60-day onboard stability of reagents and fluids minimizes reagent waste for better cost management
Utilize existing Panther® system LIS connection for Panther Fusion® assays, reducing LIS costs
In-lab upgrade increases test volumes, throughput and menu without replacing equipment or infrastructure
Consolidate your assay menu
The Aptima® and Panther Fusion assays help guide patient care and enable early detection. With a menu and pipeline of world-class assays you can consolidate your molecular testing today and meet your lab’s growing needs tomorrow.
