MolGen B.V. (Veenendaal, Netherlands) presented its diagnostics chemistry, flows and systems at MEDICA 2021, the largest medical trade fair in the world that has been taking place for more than four decades. Over the years, the event has attracted several thousand exhibitors from more than 50 countries. Leading individuals from the fields of business, research, and politics attended MEDICA 2021, alongside tens of thousands of national and international experts and decision-makers from the sector. MolGen took advantage of the opportunity to connect with the global leaders in clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, translational medicine, lab management, and other areas of breaking science in laboratory medicine.

At MEDICA 2021, MolGen showcased and demonstrated its latest products and services, including technology, systems, reagents and consumables for human diagnostics and pharmaceutical sciences. MolGen demonstrated its PurePrep 96 automated DNA and RNA purification system which is suitable for high throughput workflows with up to 96 samples per run and process samples up to 1ml. The device uses magnetic separation technology for different matrices like blood, cultured cells, bacteria, tissues, cell-free body fluids, and plant samples. The small-footprint system enables high-speed, high-quality processing with magnetic rods used to transfer magnetic beads through the various purification phases of mixing, binding, washing and elution resulting in purified DNA and RNA.

MolGen also showcased its PurePrep TTR high throughput automated liquid handling device that transfers liquid fast, accurately, and consistently from tubes to Deep Well microtiter plates. Both the tubes and plates are equipped with barcodes read by scanners to track and trace samples throughout the complete workflow. This system is developed to decrease the hands-on time, increase the lab’s accuracy, reduce contamination risks by decapping and capping tubes, and transfer samples from the tubes to plates. It is optimized for processing PurePrep TL+ samples.

Additionally, MolGen highlighted its PurePrep FR automated liquid handler for filling plates with high precision and decreasing hands-on time. It is ideal for downstream processing setups, like the PCR and LAMP setup. This system is easy to adjust to different procedures and provides insight into the results. Also on display was the MolGen Sealer, a semi-automatic thermal sealer which is ideal for low to medium throughput laboratories that requires uniform and consistent sealing of micro-plates. Unlike manual plate sealing, the MolGen Sealer produces consistent plate seals. With flexible temperature, time and pressure settings, the sealing conditions are easily optimized to guarantee consistent results, produce 100% tight seals, and eliminate sample loss or evaporation. Offering complete versatility, the MolGen Sealer is compatible with a full range of plates for PCR, assay or storage applications, and can be used with plates ranging from standard height to deep well.
