The EUROArrayProcessor enables fully automated processing of EUROArray slides.
In the pre-PCR area, the software automatically generates a worklist based on the registered primary samples and the requested analyses and supports the user in the manual preparation of PCRs by providing information on the pipetting layout and the required reagent and sample volumes. Alternatively, for a higher degree of automation, the Pre-NAT II can be included in the workflow for automated preparation of the PCRs. In this case, run information and PCR layout are transferred from the Pre-NAT II to the EUROArrayProcessor.
In the post-PCR area, the EUROArrayProcessor provides dilution of the PCRs with hybridisation buffer, the transfer of the hybridisation preparations to reagent trays and the incubation, washing and drying of the EUROArray slides. These can then be read out with the EUROArrayScanner. The integrity of the data is ensured by digital transmission between LIS, Pre-NAT II, EUROArrayProcessor and EUROArrayScan software throughout the entire process.
