Company Summary

Bead-based sample preparation techniques are a standard tool in life science research. Automation of bead-based sample preparation with magnetic particles widespread in life science research and medial diagnostics. These automated analyzers are limited to small sample volumes and suffer from sample loss and carryover. Automation of bead based processing with acoustics will offer higher volume, and faster, continuous flow sample processing.
