Qiagen has launched the QIAsymphony AS, the latest model in the QIAsymphony series of automated systems for molecular biology labs. The new instrument provides fully-automated set-up of Qiagen’s assays and PCR kits, and simplifies routine work processes. The device follows the QIAsymphony SP, a sample purification system that Qiagen launched in 2008 (www.clinica.co.uk, July 1 2008). The Dutch firm says that the new device “extends the capabilities of the QIAsymphony SP”, while featuring the same easy-to-use software. Samples processed by the QIAsymphony SP can be automatically transferred to the QIAsymphony AS, reducing handling steps and freeing up time.
