What are the key advantages being offered by the Compact XL system compared to the conventional RT-PCR testing systems?
Compact XL is a sample-to-PCR ready machine for molecular diagnostics that eliminates the huge infrastructure cost of setting up a molecular lab. It is designed to automate lab operations from sample handing to RT-PCR tube preparation. It has flexibility to test multiple parameters with multiple samples at the same time, a never before the feature. With 32 separate channels, dual-deck facility, automated barcode reading, auto fed protocol, self-sanitization, and laboratory information management system (LIMS) connectivity defines Compact XL, as a complete walk-away system. It is a cartridge-based machine and can test multiple samples concurrently. It can be used for a wide range of RNA/DNA-based tests including COVID-19 RT-PCR tests. The machine can take a variety of sample types such as plasma, tissue, sputum, and swab. Other benefits include: Save on real estate costs- no need for multiple rooms and 1000+ sq ft of space. Compact XL reduces footprint to a single room of 100 sqft; Reduced manpower- a traditional lab needs 3-4 skilled molecular biologists. Compact XL allows you to run a lab with just 1 technician; Less Equipment & Consumables- significantly cost-saving on dozens of small equipment and consumables, made obsolete by Compact XL; Zero Manual Error- an automated process with no manual intervention. Accurate material handling and process adherence for reliable results; Low maintenance- Compact XL is a hassle and maintenance free system to save you costs in short and long term. To make India self-reliant in advanced diagnostics, Compact XL is our most ambitious project to date.
