Influenza Virus Social

Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the launch of a nucleic acid purification instrument and kit for automated viral and bacterial respiratory testing.

The KingFisher Apex Dx system automates the extraction of up to 24 or 96 DNA, RNA, protein, or cell samples and transitions from clinical research to diagnostics by offering research use only (RUO) and in vitro diagnostics (IVD) software modes, according to Thermo Fisher. The MagMax Dx Viral/Pathogen NA Isolation Kit maximizes nucleic acid yield from routinely tested respiratory pathogens such as S. aureus, M. tuberculosis, influenza, RSV, and SARS-COV-2, and uses REACH-compliant components.

The system is designed to be a part of a modular sample preparation to meet real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis workflow, according to the company.
