Using the centrifugal microfluidic platform offers outstanding advantages compared to other technologies. Whole laboratory workstations are shrunk to portable desktop instruments with need of only small sample volumes. Complete workflows are feasible within a small cartridge. The high degree of multiplexing allows processing of up to 30 analytes per test. Compared to others, the cartridge can be produced in high volumes, without any hands-on efforts for low costs.

LabDisk Player Technology
Have a look at this amazing LabDisk Player technology
Whether it is a rapid RT PCR or a simple isothermal amplification for your target: The LabDisk Player platform will be the right choice.
It enables connection to data management software with further links to laboratory information system (LIS) or hospital information system (HIS) via HL7 protocol. Proprietary file transfer options can be implemented on demand.
Find out what your lab workflow automation needs are
Intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface
Intuitive, easy-to-use instrument software allows customization of the graphical user interface (GUI) according to your specific requirements. The end user in the hospital lab will only need to read the barcode on the LabDisk to tell the LabDisk Player the right processing parameters. Full track record of user ID, an audit trail and easy access to stored results ease the use of the LabDisk Player platform.
Powerful data processing
Powerful data processing allows the fully automated generation of results using qualitative as well as quantitative algorithms. We provide a Developer Software which allows test developers to create full workflows for the nucleic acid extraction as well as creation of the PCR profile as well as result definition.
