Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced many diagnostic technologies and innovative solutions which prove beneficial for researchers developing new diagnostics. The advanced tools and technologies offer improved flexibility and productivity.
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced numerous innovative diagnostic technologies, assays and a complement of solutions for researchers developing new diagnostics. The Applied Biosystems Taqman-Sars-Cov-2 Mutation Panel enables labs to build their own custom panel from a menu of verified real-time PCR assays. This meets the evolving needs of customers and public health agencies seeking to rapidly identify and survey current mutations as well as emerging variants, shares the company.
Thermo Fisher has also evolved its respiratory testing menu and improved automation to accelerate research. The Applied Biosystems Taqpath Covid-19, Flu A, Flu B Combo Kit helped labs to expand their existing Covid-19 testing menu for respiratory samples while maintaining workflow simplicity and without increasing operational costs, adds the firm.
Also, the Thermo Scientific Kingfisher Specitrax Sample Transfer System provides researchers in infectious diseases and genetics with an automated sample-handling system, including new features, such as an automated decapper, that relieve the sample processing bottleneck for increased throughput, explains the company.
A new interface with the Inpeco’s Flexlab Total Laboratory Automation system (TLA), enables primary tubes on the Inpeco LAS to be transported directly to the Thermo Scientific Cascadion SM Clinical Analyzer for automated loading, pre-treatment and analysis. This first-of-its-kind integration enables fully automated, gold-standard LC-MS/MS technology to improve clinical lab productivity, opines the firm.
The Thermo Scientific DRI Fentanyl II Drugs of Abuse Assay is available on medium to high-throughput instruments, including the Indiko Plus and Mindray BS-480, Mindray BA-800M. Labs of any size can now accurately test for multiple drugs of abuse at high volume using fully automated analyzers. Thermo Fisher’s broad and complementary offering of screening to confirmatory solutions also includes the Thermo Scientific Tox Explorer Collection, an all-in-one LC-MS/MS solution for toxicology, shares the company.
The Thermo Scientific Elia RNA Pol III and Elia Rib-P tests have received U.S. FDA clearance for aiding in the diagnosis of Systemic Sclerosis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. These tests are part of a broader Elia portfolio of connective tissue disease tests that help provide a clearer clinical picture for patients, concludes the firm.
