Instrument Building 101: Design Your Solution for Forensic Testing


Designing a solution for forensic testing 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 accuracy and precision, even with degraded samples or low sample volumes, for precise STR-based forensic testing.

Whether an instrument is designed as an end-to-end forensic instrument or something smaller, such as a sample preparation unit, the number of components and the lead time required to integrate them into a high-fidelity instrument can take years. This 10-minute Tech Talk provides options for reducing your development time through the use of configurable pipetting, gantry, and liquid handling OEM parts with component options that support individual, specific assay needs.
