Biomek 3000: the workhorse in an automated accredited forensic genetic laboratory

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

We have implemented and validated automated protocols for a wide range of processes such as sample preparation, PCR setup, and capillary electrophoresis setup using small, simple, and inexpensive automated liquid handlers. The flexibility and ease of programming enable the Biomek 3000 to be used in many parts of the laboratory process in a modern forensic genetics laboratory with low to medium sample throughput. In conclusion, we demonstrated that sample processing for accredited forensic genetic DNA typing can be implemented on small automated liquid handlers, leading to the reduction of manual work as well as increased quality and throughput.
