Automated PCR, RT-PCR, qPCR setup
Omnia brings the advantages of automation to the PRC process: speed, accuracy and reproducibility.
This procedure demands extreme precision both in the single reaction setup and plate preparation, since little changes in volumes are amplified during the process and errors in preliminary steps may hamper subsequent analysis. The scenario is further complicated when 384-well plates or higher are used and volumes are of 1 microliter.
Omnia helps in this situation by automating all the phases of PCR and Real-Time PCR setup, from preparing reaction mixes with reagents of different density, to dispensing. The workstation can also perform reverse transcription reactions with any commercial kits.
One or more cooling units can be installed to keep reagents or plates at desired temperature. Omnia is compatible with PCR tubes, strips and plates on custom adapters.
One of the most important features of Omnia is the interface with the hospital Laboratory Information System (LIS). The barcode readers – which can be integrated or external – allow managing work lists from hospital admission, querying an internal database, tracking samples and reagents, exporting files for the most common thermal cyclers.
