Is Automated Extraction Worth the Investment?
Automated extraction has a lot of perks - including saving time, increasing convenience and being easy to use. Our automated system is a walk-away solution. Once you push start, you’re set for extraction. There is no stopping the unit to complete extra steps. Plus, you eliminate cross-contamination. Our mixing technology controls the speed via a rotary apparatus to avoid liquid splashing during extraction. This means no wasted time repeating runs. Our pre-filled reagent kits are also ready to use. Forget about purchasing extra plates, tip combs, beads and buffers, the kit comes with those supplies to simplify your extraction process and your purchasing process. But is automation worth the investment?
It depends on the number of samples you are processing per day and how many days you spend processing those samples, how many workflow operators you have and how much time they spend on processing and repeating runs. We break all of this down when you request an ROI analysis and look into if it makes sense financially to make the switch and how you could save money. In most cases not only will you save money, but you will also save time because you will significantly reduce the time working on extraction, as the machine will do almost all of the work for you. Now you can spend time doing other things, maximizing your time in the lab. But take the guesswork out of whether or not it makes sense for your individual lab - request an ROI analysis and know for sure.
