New "Biometra TSuite" software simplifies and speeds up thermal cycler (PCR) management
Analytik Jena's thermal cyclers are known for their high-performance and excellent temperature management. To make them even easier and more convenient to operate and monitor, the company has launched new thermal cycler management software.
Efficiency pressure and documentation obligations – the challenges in everyday life science laboratories continue to increase. With its new thermal cycler software "Biometra TSuite", Analytik Jena is addressing precisely this issue: The tool enables simple, central operation and online monitoring of Analytik Jena PCR devices and, especially in laboratories with many thermal cyclers, expands the possibilities for versatile use of the entire PCR device pool.
"Our goal is to make thermal cycler management as convenient, reliable and efficient as possible. In addition to high-performance instruments, the user-friendliness and transparent documentation of their program run also play a decisive role. Our new software Biometra TSuite offers simple and intuitive monitoring and management even for large device networks," says Stefanie Navabi, Senior Product Manager in the Life Science Solutions division of Analytik Jena GmbH.
Biometra TSuite allows access to the entire network of thermal cyclers from one office workstation. New thermal cyclers can be integrated into the existing network at any time. Up to 1,000 devices can be managed in this way, even across several rooms or floors. This saves laboratories valuable time and increases their performance. Central monitoring of program progress enables laboratory staff to perform other tasks in parallel and to react promptly in the event of any errors.
The intuitive operating concept of the Biometra TSuite software ensures a quick start in using the extensive functions – without any training. Via the dashboard display, users can track all current events and directly access active thermal cyclers. They can also navigate to device-specific details of individual thermal cyclers, documentation files, programs and general setting options. The combination of icons, color coding, and thematically grouped content within the tool allows for quick acquisition of extensive data at a glance. Documentation of both program runs and any device notifications via exportable informative log files allows for quality compliance in a regulated environment.
The overview of all functions and technical details can be found in our Biometra TSuite product brochure.
The Biometra TSuite software is suitable for the operation of the automated thermal cycler Biometra TRobot II as well as for the Biometra TOne, TAdvanced and TRIO series.
