Molecular diagnostics

Automation solutions for molecular diagnostic workflows

High complexity molecular techniques such as nucleic acid amplification, next generation sequencing (NGS), mass spectrometry, microarrays and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) are employed in diagnostic laboratories for a range of disease areas – metabolic diseases, cancer diagnostics, reproductive genetics and transplantation medicine. This opportunity to provide targeted healthcare does come with challenges. Inaccuracies in the typically long test processes due to operator variability can lead to wrong treatment decisions being a peril to patient health and increasing healthcare costs. Analytical validity, i.e. accuracy, precision and reproducibility of the assay is a major factor for labs to get payor coverage agreements. In addition, as volumes of esoteric assays increase, clinical labs are challeged with consolidating test menus’s on fewer automated platforms, thus maximizing their return on investments.
