Genomic STARlet

The Genomic STARlet was developed in collaboration with MACHEREY-NAGEL for their vacuum-based chemistry to quickly isolate high-quality nucleic acids.

ID Systems (Pre-PCR)

The ID Systems assay ready workstations allow analysts to refocus attention away from time-consuming, low value and user-variable manual pre-PCR workflow steps while gaining valuable, high-quality data.

ID Systems (Post-PCR)

The ID Systems assay ready workstations allow analysts to refocus attention away from time-consuming, low value and user-variable manual post-PCR workflow steps while gaining valuable, high-quality data.

MagEx STARline

The MagEx STAR and STARlet are fully automated family of solutions for magnetic bead-based nucleic acid extraction and are ideal for isolation of pathogen RNA from SARS-CoV-2, the agent that causes Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). They are designed to be used with a variety of kit chemistries from leading partners, including those that are FDA or IVD approved, and can process up to 96 samples at a time on STARet and 384 on STAR.

MassSTAR

The MassSTAR was developed in collaboration with Chromsystems for automated CE-IVD certified mass spectrometry sample preparation.

NGS STAR for Library Prep

The NGS STAR efficiently and reliably automates Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) library preparation for whole genome to whole transcriptome and targeted NGS applications. Assay methods are optimized for chemistries from leading industry partners, and up to 96 samples may be processed simultaneously.

NGS VANTAGE

It’s time for the next step. Please welcome the newest member of our NGS Library Preparation family: the NGS VANTAGE. This assay-ready workstation really cares about your library preparation automation with respect to usability, reproducibility, traceability, and safety needs.

NIMBUS Presto

The NIMBUS Presto assay ready workstation is optimized for fully automated and parallel nucleic acid and protein extraction from solid tumor and liquid biopsy samples. This automated sample purification system, which is pre-programmed and integrated with the Thermo Fisher Scientific KingFisher Presto, utilizes proven KingFisher magnetic bead-based sample processing. Two interchangeable magnetic heads allow parallel processing in 24- and 96-well plate formats.

NIMBUS Select

The NIMBUS Select was developed in collaboration with Coastal Genomics for high-throughput, automated gel electrophoresis and nucleic acid size selection.

PCR Prep STARlet

The PCR Prep STARlet automates high-throughput pre-PCR sample preparation of biological samples, and is especially well-suited for SARS-CoV-2 detection using CDC authorized and FDA cleared COVID-19 test kits. The hands-free automated system reduces risk of user exposure while providing highly reliable results to be used for research or diagnostic purposes.

RT STARlet

Fast sample-to-result in one integrated system: qPCR Setup and qPCR on one platform.

STARWorks for Waters GlycoWorks

STARWorks for Waters GlycoWorks streamlines and automates your N-glycan workflows by combining Waters chemistry and Hamilton automation.

STARWorks for Waters ProteinWorks

STARWorks for Waters ProteinWorks provides a practical, broadly applicable platform that simplifies the protein bioanalysis workflow and accurately quantifies proteins in serum or plasma.

VeriSeq NIPT Microlab STAR

Developed in collaboration with Illumina, the Veriseq NIPT Microlab STAR automates PCR-free whole-genome sequencing during NGS/MPS-based non-invasive prenatal testing.
