Exhibitor Tutorial

A compact and versatile automation platform for nucleic acid isolation and assay setup

Tuesday, February 6
9:30 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: Room 3

The Thermo Scientific™ KingFisher™ Presto Sample Purification System integrated with the Hamilton Microlab® NIMBUS® automated liquid handler for cell-free DNA extraction from plasma and DNA/RNA from FFPE tissue combines two established technologies, magnetic bead transfer and liquid handling, providing reproducible results while virtually eliminating hands-on time for sample purification.  The modular structure allows each component to work efficiently, so you get the benefits of magnetic-bead based purification, such as reduced cross contamination and consistent NA recovery, in addition to the convenience of an automated liquid handler.
