Ziath has introduced two optimised packages for reliable tracking of patient samples submitted for Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing.
For large-scale, high-density Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing labs – the company has introduced a package that brings the Mohawk tube selector, Mirage rack scanner and Samples Software together to provide a reliable, high throughput sample-tracking technology bundle.
The liquid handling needed for clean-up and extraction of RNA from COVID-19 patient samples can be done on robots with 4, 8 or 96 well pick up and dispense heads; or multi-channel pipettes of 4 or 8 channels can be used in manual mode. To keep track samples, the Mohawk 96-position tube selector can automatically pop up tubes from within the rack as they are required, greatly simplifying retrieval and ensuring accurate tube selection under software control. When combined with Samples software, the Mirage rack scanner and Mohawk tube picker are designed to work seamlessly to provide verification of original tube position in a rack and the location of any picked tube in a daughter or destination rack, updating the database with both pieces of information in real-time.
For labs specialising in testing larger Coronavirus (COVID-19) patient sample swabs - Ziath offers 2D-coded Cryovial sample storage tubes. These are available in a large variety of volumes, up to 10ml capacity, and heights, which can accommodate almost any swab. Cryovial sample tubes can then be stored, sorted and handled in Cryoboxes. Using Samples software, the Cube 2D rack scanner can quickly and accurately update tube position information in each sample entry, with the scanner controlled from within the database software. A package that includes a cryoprotected Cube tube scanner, Samples sample tracking software and two cases of Cryoracks and sufficient Cryotubes to fill these is now available.
