Designing a solution for molecular diagnostic instruments involves a complex system including a long list of hardware, software, firmware, consumables, and chemistries working together. These factors need to function synergistically to provide the highest possible sensitivity and specificity for an accurate test result and analysis. Whether an instrument will be designed for an end-to-end molecular diagnostic instrument or something on a smaller scale, such as a sample preparation unit, the number of components and the lead time required to integrate these into a high-fidelity instrument can take years.
This Tech Talk provides options for reducing development time by using configurable pipetting, gantry, and liquid handling OEM parts with component options that support specific assay needs.
