NRichDx Revolution Sample Prep Semi-Automated Workflow

NRichDx has launched its semi-automated Revolution Sample Prep Workflow, powered by Eppendorf's epMotion 5073 instrument, for extraction of cell-free and circulating tumor DNA from a wide range of input sample volumes. The firm has designed the workflow to increase yield, sensitivity, and throughput by delivering more target cfDNA and ctDNA for molecular assays with increased automation and reduced hands-on technician time. The workflow allows for extraction from batches of eight to 24 samples in as little as three hours.
