This is considered to be a very onerous processing step due to the design of liquid cytology sample collection vials. The QIAensemble Decapper, which is considered the first instrument of its kind to be designed to support downstream molecular testing, will help to reduce the risk for injuries to laboratory staff from repetitive motions, while also eliminating the risk for variation among laboratory staff and improving productivity.
