PANTHER System

Hologic Gen-Probe introduces the PANTHER system-designed to unleash the power and simplicity of fully automated chemistry and immunoassay instrumentation for the molecular diagnostics world. Created to be a "sample-in-result-out" instrument, the PANTHER system eliminates batch processing and automates all aspects of nucleic acid testing on a single, integrated platform. The PANTHER's extensive list of features includes a bi-directional host interface, the ability to test multiple analytes from a single tube, positive sample identification, random access and full automation for true walkaway freedom; combined with intuitive design for ease of use-working together to help small- to medium-sized laboratories maximize operator efficiency and productivity.

The PANTHER System automates all phases of molecular diagnostics testing from sample preparation, amplification, and detection to reporting results. Integrating the PANTHER System with APTIMA assay kits for NAT offers confidence in results with true freedom from hands-on processing.

PANTHER System - Physical Specifications

The PANTHER system can process up to 275 tests per 8-hour shift, and up to 500 tests in 12 hours. To provide maximum flexibility and menu expansion, the system has been designed for both end-point and real-time assays. The reaction tube takes approximately 3-1/2 hours to journey through the system for endpoint assays, and approximately 2-1/2 hours for real-time assays,* before a result is produced. Every five minutes, five additional results are generated. With its impressive level of automation, the PANTHER design should help improve the efficiency of a typical 8-hour workday with up to 4 hours of result processing labor-free. The PANTHER System will continue generating results unattended, providing the maximized productivity that molecular labs have been waiting for.
