Calculate your ROI
See how an automated Rhinostics-based workflow can bring dramatic time- and cost-savings to your laboratory compared to manual processing methods.
Two automated RHINOstic swab workflows are available - select the one that is ideal for your laboratory
Two-phase automated RHINOstic swab test procedure
Ideal for medium and high throughput laboratories
Phase 1In a biosafety cabinet, load samples, automatically scan 2D barcodes and decap tubes, manually add reagent, automatically recap tubes, manually move samples to incubator or heating block.
Phase 2Move samples to automated liquid handler deck integrated with automated decapper, automatically decap tubes and transfer precise liquid aliquots and reagents into assay plates, seal plates, analyze via PCR.
Capital equipment required: 2 decappers, 1 liquid handler
Fully automated RHINOstic swab test procedure
Ideal for ultra high sample demand, high throughput laboratories
Load samples, automatically scan 2D barcodes, automatically decap tubes and add elution reagent, automatically recap tubes and move to integrated heating block, automatically decap tubes and transfer precise liquid aliquots and reagents into assay plates, seal plates, analyze via PCR.
Capital equipment required: 1 decapper, 1 liquid handler
