MGI Tech Co., Ltd. (Shenzhen, China) showcased some of its latest laboratory automation systems for sample transfer, sample extraction and library preparation, including the world’s first high-throughput automated sample transfer processing system, at MEDICA 2021.

MGI’s automation systems on display at the event included the MGISP-960, MGISP-NE384, MGISTP-7000 and MGISTP-3000 - all of which can be harnessed in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. MGISTP-7000 is a high-throughput automated sample transfer processing system that was specially designed for nucleic acid detection in the COVID-19 pandemic. The system integrates tube decapping, tube recapping, barcode identification, automated liquid transfer and negative pressure protection. With just a single click, the MGISTP-7000 can load original samples with caps and transfer up to 192 potential contagious samples from airtight sample tubes or plain tubes to 96-well microplates, with zero human contact during the process in 40 minutes. This first-of-its-kind automation system has already received CE marking and been rolled out in laboratories in Europe.

MGISTP-3000 is the benchtop version of the STP7000, offering automated sample transfer processing with tube decapping, tube recapping, barcode identification, automated liquid transfer and negative pressure protection for up to 96 samples. This compact desktop system is capable of processing 1,000 to 10,000 samples per day with just one click. MGISP-NE384 is a high-throughput automated nucleic acid extractor that adopts magnetic rod technology. Together with a nucleic acid extraction kit, MGISP-NE384 is able to extract and purify nucleic acid from 96/192/288/384 samples. HEPA filtration system and UV lamp ensure a safe working environment for nucleic acid extraction and lab technicians. MGISP-NE384 is particularly beneficial for labs looking to improve daily testing capacity for COVID-19. One single unit can process 10,000 samples per day, and the daily testing capacity of 10 units can reach up to 1 million if 10 samples are mixed in one tube.

MGISP-960 is a highly efficient, widely used automated sample preparation system equipped with comprehensive functions, economic and efficient operation and comprehensive protection in a truly open platform. A flexible, fully automated workstation with 96-channel pipette, which can be used for COVID sample extraction and PCR set-up. MGISP-960 has also validated plenty of library kits including WES, WGS, RNA and more. Meanwhile, the device's fully automatic operation design can realize unmanned processes and be customized according to the user's specific needs.

MGI has already combined the MGISP-960, MGISP-NE384 and MGISTP-7000 in a single automated, integrated container laboratory that significantly improves testing capacity for large-scale COVID-19 nucleic acid testing. The container is an integrated platform that automates the management of the entire testing process, from barcode identification to sample dispatch, nucleic acid extraction, fluorescence quantitative PCR testing, and report distribution. A game-changing system, MGI's container laboratory has already been embraced by companies across Europe.
