About the Genie System
Quality that excites. Sakura Finetek partnered with NordiQC (www.nordiqc.org
), a world-leading external quality assurance institute
, to assure optimal stain quality for our entire menu of antibodies. The species and clones of Genie antibodies have been carefully selected and proficiently developed to meet our rigorous standards. The stain protocols for Genie antibodies provide exceptional sensitivity and specificity to enable accurate assessment of patients’ specimens by pathologists.
Stop sorting, gain time
. With its 30 fully independent staining stations, the Genie offers true random access and does not slow down when more slides are added. Users can eliminate time-consuming slide sorting or grouping, and instead simply load their next most important slide or case.
Flexibility that liberates. Laboratories can use Genie’s unique and innovative single-use
capsules for antibodies or probes and load them on Genie’s independent staining stations together with the slides. The 250-test Genie Pro Detection Systems (DAB, AP Red, DUO) and antibody cartridges are loaded onto the system’s carousel, which deliver the reagents in constant timed cycles guaranteeing predictable workflow. Genie allows users to realize flexibility, better economy, and faster turnaround time.
Fast to learn, easy to operate. The Genie Software uses intuitive graphics and two mouse-
click navigation for simplified operation, and provides a comprehensive status at a glance. The replacement of bulk reagents and waste bottles is quick and strain-free.
