Nucleic Acid Preparation-PCR (NAP-PCR)

VERSA Automated Nucleic Acid Preparation-PCR Setup


Nucleic Acid Purification Setup

Solutions for automated DNA purification, automated RNA purification, and automated PCR setup are becoming more commonplace in modern labs as these workstations provide high levels of accuracy, precision and throughput required in many of today’s labs. Laboratories are facing increasing demands on their resources through an increasingly large number of samples per trial. Large sample numbers tie up staff for extended periods of time and lead to inconsistent results due to the inherent inconsistencies of manual techniques as workers struggle to keep up. In addition, technicians are frequently exposed to harmful reagents or organisms during nucleic acid purification increasing the chances of injury or infection. With such drawbacks against manual nucleic acid extraction methods, a growing number of labs are switching from manual to automated extraction solutions to overcome bottlenecks in extraction processes.

PCR Setup

Similarly, labs processing a high volume of samples for analysis by PCR can greatly benefit from an automated PCR setup workstation. Automated PCR setup provides the benefits of increasing total throughput, decreasing variability due to manual pipetting errors, and providing lab staff with valuable walk-away time to focus on other tasks such as non-automatable assays and data analysis.
