Fully Automated Sample-to-Result Instrument for Molecular Testing

Product Description

The geneLEAD VIII is a fully automated, sample-to-result precision instrument. Samples, reagents and consumables are placed in the instrument and the assay is started. Nucleic acids are obtained from the samples using magnetic bead extraction with process happening in the tip (Magtration®) instead of a well. Upon completion the nucleic acids are transferred to the PCR well, and the PCR master mix is added and qPCR thermal cycling started. Results are analyzed and reported directly by the instrument and can be accessed remotely using LIMS system.

*geneLEAD VIII is sold in the European market with CE/IVD marking.
