Tecan Group and Luminex Corporation Partner to Develop Automated Newborn Screening Solution
Date:10/12/2010

alk-away testing platform for multiplexed newborn screening.  These high-volume screening assays test newborn infants for several different biomarkers linked to critical diseases.  Each of these conditions can cause severe mental and physical disability if untreated.  If detected early through testing, effective treatment can be initiated.  Multiplexing these tests together from one sample offers significant improvements in testing efficiency.

Patrick Balthrop, CEO of Luminex, said: "Automation continues to be a top priority for Luminex and our customers.  The high testing volumes in the newborn screening market require full sample-to-answer automation for the thousands of specimens processed by each customer per day.  We evaluated several different robotic solutions to achieve this full automation for our xMAP technology and determined that Tecan was the best option available for this application.  We have had a very effective relationship with Tecan and we are proud to be partnered with them in this effort."
