Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announced the new Thermo Scientific BindIt 3.1 software for use with all Thermo Scientific KingFisher magnetic particle processor instruments. The flexible and easy-to-use software enables the users to create new purification protocols or modify existing ones. BindIt 3.1 software provides a complete, fully-automated solution with the highest possible throughput, enabling the KingFisher® Flex to interface with liquid handling and plate stacking instruments as well as robotics.
With ready-made and validated purification protocols available, BindIt 3.1 software lets users choose the best method for a sample process. Once created, custom protocols can be stored in a PC database and transferred to the KingFisher instrument memory for stand-alone operation or run directly from the PC. All steps in the process have modifiable, defined parameters, and users can generate a status report to maintain quality control. This can include data on the run log, plate layout and step parameters.
The Thermo Scientific KingFisher instrumentation facilitates magnetic-based particle processing for DNA, RNA, proteins and cell purification from virtually any source.
