  • Eliminates false positives
  • Enhances testing capacity
  • Provides results within 24 hours

How It Works

Robotics can automate hundreds of life science protocols and workflows while offering speed and efficiency that can only be attained with this system. The risks of human error with manual sample handling can be circumvented by automating nucleic acid extraction with robotics, thus ensuring greater consistency and reliability as well as better quality data overall.

Using Robotics and PCR Testing Capabilities for COVID-19

Real-time PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) is a valuable molecular technique performed in a high complexity laboratory to accurately analyze the genetic material of pathogens. As a modern molecular biology lab, MAS utilizes PCR to identify and quantify both bacteria and viruses as well as to determine antibiotic resistance. PCR is 3-5X more sensitive than conventional culture techniques and allows us to report results for both pathogen identification and antibiotic resistance.


PCR Testing: The Gold Standard in Molecular Diagnostics

  • PCR tests help to identify the presence of the COVID-19 (Sars -CoV-2) virus
  • OT-2 by Opentrons, QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR Chemagic 360
  • Test is conducted with a nasal-pharyngeal swab sample (NP, upper respiratory).
  • Results are ready within 24 of receiving the specimen to identify if the virus is present.
  • Each test is covered by all insurance plans and un-insured at 100% of the allowed amount without any patient responsibility (no copay or deductibles apply).

Clinical Advantages

  • Detects Polymicrobial Infections at Once
  • Provides an Accurate Diagnosis within 24 hours
  • Unaffected by Concurrent Antibiotic Use
  • Decreases Additional Unnecessary Diagnostic Testing
  • Lowers Healthcare Costs
  • Identifies Antibiotic Resistance
  • Improves Antibiotic Stewardship
  • Reduction Unnecessary Drug Exposure and Adverse Events
  • Decrease Patient Risks
  • Eliminates Subjectivity
  • Improves Patient Satisfaction
