Tecan DreamPrep automation solutions for coronavirus research and detection

Friday, 01 May, 2020 | Supplied by: Tecan Australia


Tecan’s DreamPrep solutions provide ready-to-go workflows for nucleic acid extraction and NGS library prep, helping to boost the productivity of labs investigating the SARS-CoV-2 virus — the causative agent of COVID-19.

DreamPrep NAP workstation featuring Zymo Research is designed to simplify nucleic acid extraction workflows by providing a pre-programmed, optimised workflow for the Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead kit, which was recently evaluated as part of a SARS-CoV-2 detection workflow. This set-up allows purification of up to 96 samples in less than 2 h, by combining the Fluent Automation Workstation and Fluent Gx Assurance Software for regulated environments.

Tecan is also helping to accelerate research into the COVID-19 pandemic with the DreamPrep NGS and Trio RNA-Seq library preparation kits for liquid biopsy, FFPE and other challenging samples. This approach to pathogen identification from low-input samples delivers insights into viral abundance, mutation rates, spectrum surveillance and gene expression. The valuable information gathered is helping researchers around the world to determine disease incubation times, quarantine periods, and the risks and impact of healthy carriers on the general population, epidemiology and viral evolution.
