age chronic labor shortages.
  • Primary tube sampling with random access loading for maximum flexibility and productivity.  Multiple assays can be run from a single sample, and operators have continuous access to samples, reagents and consumables.
  • A customer-driven design, intuitive software for ease of use, and remote diagnostics capabilities.
  • Extensive process controls that include positive sample identification, liquid level detection, reagent dispense verification, and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags on fluid containers.  These controls help reduce the potential for manual errors.
  • A small footprint with a width of 48", a depth of 32", and a height of 69".

  • The PANTHER system complements Gen-Probe's TIGRIS® system, which was the first fully automated, high-throughput molecular testing system for large laboratories.  Since its launch in 2004, more than 550 TIGRIS systems have been installed at high-volume clinical diagnostic and blood screening laboratories around the world.  TIGRIS can process as many as 1,000 patient samples in a day, yielding 2,000 Chlamydia and gonorrhea results with the APTIMA Combo 2 assay.

    The PANTHER system was CE-marked for sale in the European Union late in 2010.
