Automatic metaphase harvesting is a technique that may be applied all common sample types that are cultured for subsequent cytogenetic analysis.
Typically, automatic metaphase harvesting may offer several attractions to a typical cytogenetics laboratory, where the deployment of workforce resource is a compromise between tasks of necessity such as sample processing, including set up, culturing and harvesting and skilled “added value” analysis.
Automatic metaphase harvesting streamlines laboratory workflow and also allows for a significant cost savings within the laboratory:
Automated metaphase harvesting is a core philosophy embodied in Genial Genetics’ MultiPrep product lines, all of which are award-winning. The MultiPrep Genie range performs high throughput automated metaphase harvesting on in-situ (typically prenatal) cytogenetic cultures and the MultiPrep CellSprint range performs high throughput metaphase harvesting on cytogenetic suspension cultures.
