Going by the famous saying, ‘Change is the only constant’, HiGenoMB®, the molecular biology division of HiMedia Laboratories has been developing extraction kits and platforms for the last 15 years. Diagnostic tests lay the foundation to taking the right medical decisions. Molecular Diagnostics stands as the most dynamic and flourishing area of diagnostics. A recent revolution in the molecular diagnostic sector has been automating sample pre-processing for downstream applications like qPCR in order to have an uninterrupted workflow. HiMedia Laboratories, as a part of their complete automated solution for molecular processing, has launched the Insta NX® Mag series of automated nucleic acid extractors with pre-filled plates. These are the most versatile benchtop instruments that aid in consistent extraction and purification of DNA, RNA using the magnetic bead based separation technology. The Mag instruments are flexible systems that can process even complex clinical samples directly with minimal manual intervention and without requiring any specific laboratory infrastructure. HiGenoMB® has supplied over 500 Mag instruments and approximately 50 million extraction kits to various customers across the nation.

HiMedia focusses on requirement based instrument designing. Insta NX® Mag16, the smallest and the newest model, works out to be a very economical solution for small labs that are just entering into Molecular diagnostics. It can process minimum of 1, and a maximum of 16 samples in a single run. A medium scale testing facility may opt for a slightly bigger system like the Mag32 which can accommodate up to 32 samples in a single run. For large scale pathology labs, that often have a bulk load of samples and require high throughput systems, Insta NX® Mag96 is the perfect solution. HiGenoMB® has a diverse product range based upon the sample processing capacity, which allows the end user to select based upon throughput requirements of the laboratory.
Small labs generally cannot afford expensive instruments due to funding issues. Therefore, a budget-friendly instrument like Mag16, with a reduced cost per test will also encourage smaller labs shift towards molecular diagnostics considering it as the need of the hour. With the Mag series, it is possible to obtain consistent and reproducible data across different labs or even different instruments making it a very reliable method of extraction. Customized pre-filled, sealed extraction plates or individual cartridges are provided that cut down almost 75% of pre-processing time, making it a very rapid and user-friendly technique. These pre-filled plates also help prevent spillage or wastage of reagents. Today, molecular diagnostics is a game changer for clinical laboratories of all sizes, offering more powerful tools for faster and more accurate detection of the disease. These advanced systems are helping physicians decide their line of treatment at a faster pace and with more precision. In short, these series of HiMedia extractors have the potential to revolutionize extraction from column based to magnetic bead based for rural to urban and small to high throughput labs.
