Several companies have announced the launch of laboratory diagnostic products in advance of AACC 2022.
Among them, OraSure Technologies said that its Omnigene Gut DNA and RNA product is available to gut microbiome researchers. The product, made by OraSure subsidiary DNA Genotek, allows for self-collection, stabilization, storage, and transportation of both microbial DNA and RNA at ambient temperature for gut microbiome profiling.
Meanwhile, Sysmex is launching the AutoSorter XN specifically to support its XN-series hematology line. AutoSorter XN is a robotic platform for pre- and postanalytic specimen processing in demanding laboratory environments, the firm said.
The platform is designed specifically for high-volume commercial lab requirements such as bulk loading and high-speed specimen sorting. AutoSorter XN is capable of loading and unloading a fully populated XN-9100 line at capacity, processing up to 1,100 specimens per hour, Sysmex added.
Additionally, Yaskawa Motoman said it is launching the AutoSorter 1200, a high-speed sorting instrument for pre- and postanalytic specimen processing that can process up to 1,200 tubes per hour. A large sorting deck area yields extended walkaway times and expanded deck configuration options, while the reduced footprint saves lab floorspace, the firm noted.
