Chromosomal Laboratories Featured in Eppendorf’s First epMotion Video
New Video Profiles Uses of Advanced Robotic Systems in Forensic Laboratory
Chromosomal Laboratories, Inc, a leading forensic DNA testing laboratory, is pleased to announce that it has been featured in Eppendorf’s first epMotion video. This unique campaign gives winning Eppendorf customers the opportunity to participate in a video showcasing the work of their laboratory and highlighting the advantages of the epMotion for their application.
Chromosomal Laboratories has successfully pioneered the development and validation of numerous automated methods on the Eppendorf epMotion™ 5075-TMX platform. Unlike other robotic systems on the market, the Eppendorf epMotion™ 5075-TMX provides an open platform to create an unlimited number of single tube method formats. President Nicole Bolin, who pioneered the methods for Chromosomal Laboratories, stated, “The epBlue software is user-friendly and scripts can be written easily and quickly. The software offers a “simulation” run, which allows the user to observe the robot movements (scripts) on the computer monitor prior to running the script on actual samples. This simulation allows the script to be reviewed without wasting reagents and consumables.”
This new extraction has proven highly efficacious for DNA recovery from body fluid stains, “touch DNA”, hair roots, fingernails and tissue. When combined with the epMotion robotic system, extraction time for a 96 well plate has been reduced to under two hours. Mrs. Bolin, who presented her validation studies at the 21st International Symposium on Human Identification adds that, “In addition to the improved efficiency of the epMotion™ 5075, Prepfiler™ has enabled our company to consolidate three of our previous extraction techniques into just one, while limiting the use of two carcinogenic chemicals from our lab.”
