Analytik Jena and Thermo Fisher Scientific announced a new laboratory automation solution designed to streamline workflows, optimize productivity, and speed time to results. The new solution is on display this week at the 2018 Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference, Booth 1105, San Diego Convention Center, California.

For researchers looking to optimize results and accelerate throughput without having to invest time and budget to develop and program customized systems, Thermo Fisher is introducing a series of automated turnkey workflow-based solutions. The first in a series of systems is a cell-free DNA (cfDNA) extraction device, which combines the Thermo Scientific Spinnaker robot, Thermo Scientific KingFisher Presto purification system and MagMAX Cell-Free DNA Isolation Kit with Analytik Jena’s CyBio® FeliX liquid handling system. Leveraging Thermo Fisher’s genomics expertise and Analytik Jena’s know-how, this end-to-end solution is easily configurable and expandable, offering a complete sample-to-knowledge workflow for next generation sequencing (NGS), reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and capillary electrophoresis (CE) sequencing applications.

“We are excited to integrate our deep knowledge in automation and liquid handling into a complete solution package with Thermo Fisher’s workflow-based solutions for new application areas in the world of Life Sciences,” said Ulrich Krauss, CEO of Analytik Jena.

“Laboratories are constantly seeking new ways to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their processes in order to advance scientific research,” said Hansjoerg Haas, senior director and general manager, laboratory automation at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Thermo Fisher is uniquely positioned to deliver a range of state-of-the-art laboratory automation solutions that build on years of customer feedback and incorporate innovative technologies, such as cloud connectivity, robotics and vision control. By designing systems that can be used by experts and novices alike, we’re helping customers to drive scientific innovation.”
