Discover The DreamPrep NAP Featuring Zymo Research Workstation And Jump Start Your Nucleic Acid Processing

Tecan’s new DreamPrep NAP workstation is designed to simplify your nucleic acid extraction workflows. Tecan has collaborated closely with Zymo Research to offer a ready-to-go processing solution for the ZymoBIOMICS 96 MagBead DNA Kit, including walkaway quantification and normalization with an on-board Infinite 200 PRO reader.

The DreamPrep NAP featuring Zymo Research platform provides flexible processing of virtually any magnetic bead-based extraction workflow, and has been preconfigured, preprogrammed and optimized for Zymo Research kits. Based on the Fluent 480 Automation Workstation, this system offers efficient, unbiased lysis to generate high quality nucleic acid samples ready for immediate microbiome or metagenome analysis to reveal the true composition of your samples.

To help you get the most out of your system, it is supplied with both Tecan Connect – allowing you to monitor your instrument on your smartphone – and Introspect, which automatically gathers instrument runtime, reagent and consumables usage and error rate data. These cloud-based software solutions provide valuable insights on your instrument management and availability, helping you to shape your future laboratory automation.

Luca Valeggia, Vice President of Laboratory Automation and Consumables at Tecan, commented: “We are very excited about the launch of these latest innovations at SLAS2020. This combination of DreamPrep NAP, Tecan Connect and Introspect exemplifies our vision for the future of laboratory automation – providing not just liquid handling and analytical solutions, but digital insights and empowerment. Our goal is for you to let DreamPrep NAP work for you, while you plan your next experiment.”
