Step out of the Dark into the New World of FISH Automation
Wednesday, Oct. 31st at 10AM PDT / 1PM EDT


Automating workflows is becoming increasingly important for today’s cytogenetics and FISH laboratories in order to accommodate higher test volumes, reduce turn-around times and reagent costs. While there are many solutions available for automating various aspects of the workflows, there is a need for a cohesive integration that allows data to flow seamlessly between systems.
BioDot and ASI have created a unique solution for a fully integrated workflow, from slide preparation to case sign-out, challenging traditional paradigms with respect to cost, turn-around-time, quality and consistency.

During the webinar, you will learn how automation, software and multiplexing are becoming powerful tools as labs look to address the pressures of reduced reimbursement and growing test volumes. The developers of the technology will walk you through the process from beginning to end.
