The ESTREAM instrument is a compact pipetting instrument for any laboratory requiring fully automated setup of real-time PCR amplification reactions and sample traceability. The system can prepare a 96-well PCR reaction plate from master mixes and nucleic acid eluates presented in either easyMAG vessels or storage tubes, or from both, in about 35 minutes. ESTREAM is designed to prepare multiple quantitative and qualitative real-time PCR assays. Intelligent pipetting from a test request file allows processing of samples requiring varying subsets of master mixes without re-programming the instrument. The system includes a barcode reader, UV light for decontamination, and provides a positive pressure HEPA-filtered atmosphere.
