febit plans to launch Geniom RT Analyzer to the US market

Febit Biomed : 24 April, 2008  (New Product)
febit is planning to introduce the Geniom RT Analyzer to the US market at RNAi World Congress, which will take place April 30-May 2, 2008 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
RNA-researchers, one of the main user groups of febit's new device, will benefit from the Microarray technology device's high degree of automation and flexibility. In addition, microRNA researchers will enjoy febit's recently released Microarray based on Sanger miRBase-Version 11.0.

The latest product in febit's Geniom family, the Geniom RT Analyzer enables the fully automated processing of microarrays on febit's own Geniom biochips. The compact all-in-one device, which employs microfluidics, provides users with high sample throughput, excellent reproducibility, high sensitivity and a variety of applications. In addition, the product's freely programmable and precise temperature control optimises hybridizations and enables the use of enzymatic reactions directly on the microfluidic array for signal enhancement and primer extension assays.

'We have brought together in one benchtop tool the automation of multiple processes involved with the identification and understanding of how genes work,' said Cord Staehler, president and chief executive officer of febit. 'This is all about flexibility, control of experiments and time savings. Still, we provide more than a machine with the Geniom RT Analyzer. Our approach is an important combination of tools and talent to help researchers meet their needs. With the demand we're seeing for the Geniom RT Analyzer, we're expanding our US sales and support team as well as moving our lab and training center to a larger facility in the Boston area.'

Based on the proven Geniom technology, febit offers Microarray analytics for a broad spectrum of DNA and RNA samples. The array design can be chosen from current databases or freely configured by the user. Geniom arrays are produced on demand at febit and subject to rigorous quality control before shipment to the customer.

Alternatively, researchers may prefer the Geniom One System, which enables integrated Microarray synthesis in the user's own laboratory. This provides an independent workflow with complete control of the Microarray experiments. For utmost flexibility and maximised throughput, both instruments can be utilised in combination.

The Geniom RT Analyzer offers the following features:

- Sample loading, hybridization, washing, staining and detection in one single benchtop instrument;

- Active motion hybridization in the microchannels of the microarrays;

- Precise temperature control for optimized hybridisations.

Advantages include:

- One device covers the complete workflow;

- Convenient handling of microarrays;

- Enhanced reproducibility and sensitivity plus higher sample throughput by automation.

Geniom arrays are currently available for the following applications:

- microRNA profiling (latest version of Sanger miRBase; efficient extension by additional content);

- mRNA profiling (pathway arrays, focus arrays, signature arrays);

- Custom microarrays produced on request according to user specifications.
