Robust and high-throughput, SAMBA I is ideal for district or regional hospitals looking for a simple and accurate system for the diagnosis of infectious disease and treatment monitoring. The SAMBA I platform enables the semi-automated extraction, amplification and detection of pathogen nucleic acid.
SAMBA I is comprised of two instruments: SAMBAprep, which conducts the sample extraction, and SAMBAamp, which conducts the amplification and detection of target nucleic acids. Each SAMBAprep instrument can run up to six samples at a time, and each SAMBAamp instrument can amplify and detect up to four extracts. This enables flexible, high-throughput of up to 72 samples per day depending on instrument configuration.
Easy to use - the prefilled ready-to use cartridges are easy to load and include all consumables. Samples are loaded into SAMBAprep for extraction and then kept chilled before amplification and detection with SAMBAamp. Detection is simple; assay results are read as lines on the lateral flow strip, as easy as reading a pregnancy test.
