New Automated Electrophoresis System produces analysed results in less than 10 minutes

Anachem : 09 October, 2007  (New Product)
Anachem and Lab901 have announced a partnership that will bring a new, fully automated, walk away electrophoresis platform to scientists across the UK and Ireland.
The ScreenTape System, developed by Lab901, employs a microscale polymer tape that contains all the reagents required for DNA electrophoresis. The system offers convenience, ease of use and safety to molecular biologists because no handling of gels and buffers is required.

The compact, fully automated ScreenTape instrument replaces the need for hand-cast gels, buffers, gel tanks and gel-doc systems. In just under 10 minutes the system loads the samples, runs the gel, images and presents the fully analysed results (including gel picture, band sizes and quantitative data). This ensures accuracy, reproducibility and traceability. The system is fully bar coded to meet GLP guidelines and data is archived for easy retrieval and comparison.

'Many of Anachem's customers are routinely running traditional slab gels and using Ethidium bromide to detect PCR products,' said James Wilson, Anachem molecular biology business unit manager. 'Working with Lab901 will enable us to bring them a safer, more efficient, higher quality system for biomolecular separation with advanced data analysis capabilities.'

'Lab901 is proud to engage market leader Anachem as its exclusive UK distributor,' said Joel Fearnley, Lab901 CEO. 'We look forward to a long term partnership that will help establish the ScreenTape system as the product of choice for electrophoresis in laboratories across the country.'
