Title (EN) AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR ISOLATING, AMPLYIFYING AND DETECTING A TARGET NUCLEIC ACID SEQUENCE
(FR) SYSTEME AUTOMATISE DESTINE A ISOLER, AMPLIFIER ET DETECTER UNE SEQUENCE D'ACIDES NUCLEIQUES CIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for preparing and testing of targeted nucleic acids is presented. The system integrates a pipetter (522), extractor (516), assay reader (502), and other components, including a selectively compliant articulated robot arm (SCARA) (524). This synergistic integration of previously separate diagnostic tools creates a system and method whereby a minimum of human intervention is required. The resulting system provides a substantially more accurate and precise method of isolating, amplifying and detecting targeted nucleic acids for diagnosing diseases.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé destinés à préparer et à tester des acides nucléiques ciblés. Ce système comprend un pipetteur (522), un extracteur (516), un appareil de lecture d'essai (502), et d'autres composants, notamment un bras de robot articulé sélectivement adaptatif (SCARA) (524). Cette intégration synergique d'outils de diagnostic préalablement séparés crée un système et un procédé dans lesquels un minimum d'intervention humaine est nécessaire. Le système qui en résulte offre un procédé sensiblement plus précis et plus approprié d'isolation, d'amplification et de détection d'acides nucléiques ciblés destinés à diagnostiquer des maladies.
