Instrumentation

Integrated molecular testing solutions in your diagnostic laboratory

Hologic technology and instruments are developed with laboratorians, healthcare providers and ultimately, patients in mind. Our molecular testing instruments deliver consistently reliable functionality and trusted end results. Hologic diagnostic instruments answer the demands of today’s labs with automation, efficiency and flexibility. Hologic instruments are adaptable to changing workflow and diverse testing needs for all types of molecular labs.

The Panther® system: Unprecedented agility on a consolidated platform

The Panther system is a fully automated testing platform with true sample-to-result automation, adaptable workflow options and a consolidated testing menu. The Panther system allows labs to take control of productivity with a number of intuitive features.

Leverage limited resources

  • Proven lowest hands-on time to minimize labor1
  • A consolidated testing menu allows for maximized resource efficiency
  • Reagents may be reused or removed as needed, reducing waste
  • Controls/calibrators only need to be run every 24 hours, reducing cost per reportable
     

Increased productivity and efficiency

  • Random access: Load samples in any order without batch constraints.
  • Sample-to-result automation: Increase test volumes without increasing labor, helping you do more with less.
  • One sample, multiple results: Process multiple assays from one patient sample to decrease turnaround time and minimize labor.
  • Throughput for transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) assays: Process up to 275 samples in 8 hrs.2
  • Throughput for real-time TMA assays: Process up to 320 samples in 8 hrs and up to 750 samples in 15.2 hrs.2

*Aptima Zika Virus assay:
  • This test has not been FDA cleared or approved;
  • This test has been authorized by FDA under an EUA for use by authorized laboratories;
  • This test has been authorized only for the detection of RNA from Zika virus and diagnosis of Zika virus infection, not for any other viruses or pathogens; and
  • This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of in vitro diagnostic tests for detection of Zika virus and/or diagnosis of Zika virus infection undersection 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C.§ 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.

The Panther Fusion® system: Extend your presence, expand your potential

The Panther Fusion system represents the next step in the legacy of Hologic molecular testing innovation that began with the Panther system. The Panther Fusion module and Panther Fusion assays bring polymerase chain reaction (PCR) capabilities to the Panther system. Combining PCR with our powerful TMA technology on a single platform allows for multiple chemistries and even more flexibility on a consolidated system. Follow up with your sales representative about which assays are currently available on which systems.

Expanded menu on a consolidated platform

The Panther Fusion system allows for a broader testing menu on a single, integrated instrument. The Panther Fusion module is available as a field upgrade for existing Panther systems, allowing for menu consolidation without the need for staff to learn an entirely new platform.

Maximum potential and enhanced flexibility

The Panther Fusion system is a random-access system with the ability to access 32 different assays simultaneously. Allows for batch-free processing with up to 120 patient samples loaded in any combination at one time. Process 335 Panther Fusion® tests in 8 hours.2

Unparalleled automation and uninterrupted momentum

The Panther Fusion system features minimal hands-on time with true walkaway freedom to amplify productivity.

Personalized testing for syndromic respiratory viruses

The Panther Fusion Respiratory assays were the first Panther Fusion assays available on the Panther Fusion system.

A general purpose instrument

The Tomcat® instrument is a general purpose instrument for improved workflow in your lab and streamlined pre-analytical sample processing. This instrument is designed to reduce errors and inefficiencies related to manual aliquoting. The Tomcat instrument promotes:

  • Accurate identification: Automate barcode printing and validation.
  • Freedom from batching: Process multiple samples concurrently (up to 300/8 hrs) as they come in, without the need to batch.2
  • Workflow flexibility: Continuously load and unload samples, consumables and waste.
  • Minimal hands-on interaction: Reduce repetitive motion injuries and cross contamination errors, while using valuable labor resources more efficiently.
     

Break free from the constraints of manual processing in your lab with the Tomcat Instrument.
