Fujirebio Europe launches the RoboBlot™ Non-Heated instrument for high throughput INNO-LIA® Score assay automation

Product news

Gent, Belgium: February 14, 2020 - Fujirebio Europe today announced the release of the new RoboBlot Non-Heated instrument. RoboBlot Non-Heated is a closed system for the automated processing of INNO-LIA Score assays, manufactured by Bee Robotics Ltd. and distributed by Fujirebio Europe. The system’s pre-programmed test protocols provide start-to-finish automation of strip-based INNO-LIA Score assays, from sample addition to image capture, result interpretation and LIS communication.

“Higher throughput testing and higher levels of automation are becoming an increasingly pressing need for laboratories. The drawbacks typical of manual testing, such as long hands-on time, inconsistent assay performance or issues with traceability, will become a part of the past,” said Christiaan De Wilde, CEO at Fujirebio Europe ”The RoboBlot Non-Heated system has been brought to the market to answer the needs of laboratories looking for a high-throughput blot strip testing solution with minimal hands-on time. This system’s design will transform workflow from tedious manual or semi-automatic work into completely automated testing.”

RoboBlot Non-Heated extends the range of automation solutions already offered by Fujirebio Europe for the widely used INNO-LIA Score assay portfolio, and it allows for an even more customized fit with individual laboratory needs. Other automation solutions for this portfolio include the Auto-LIA™ 48, AUTOBLOT 3000 and TENDIGO®.
