The Thermo Fisher Scientific Amplitude Solution is an upcoming, new, highly automated molecular diagnostic testing system that can analyze over 6,000 COVID-19 specimens in 24 hours. The Amplitude Testing Solution can help laboratories quickly scale COVID-19 testing to volumes needed to help reduce the spread of disease and restore economies and communities. This solution requires minimal hands-on time, equipment, and staffing. This solution offers:

Sample and swab
Over 6,000 test results per day
User
4-employee operation
Support Tools
24/7 support
Resource Center
1 source for secured supply

 

As the world leader in serving science, Thermo Fisher Scientific has brought together industry-leading products into a high-throughput diagnostic solution with the convenience of purchasing a secured supply of assays and consumables directly from a single-source supplier. Your initial purchase comes with an up-front monthly delivery of reagents for your laboratory’s needs over the first year.

Amplitude workflow

Module 1

After each tube is manually uncapped, inactivated, and barcoded, the tube rack is placed into the Tecan Fluent™ 1080 liquid handler.  This instrument automates the process for your lab by adding a negative control, beads/binding solution, proteinase K, and MS2, and by preparing four 96-deep-well plates for transferring into the next step.

Module 2

  • Extracts and purifies RNA from specimens
  • Combines 4 x 96-well RNA plates into 384-well TaqPath reaction plates
  • Performs real-time PCR workflow for TaqPath assay
  • Seperates liquid and plastic waste for easy disposal

 

Sample analysis

  • The qPCR run data is automatically analyzed and the COVID-19 test results are generated
  • COVID-19 test results are available to be submitted to your laboratory's LIMS

At the core of the Amplitude solution is the Applied Biosystems TaqPath COVID-19 kit, which consistently delivers superior sensitivity and specificity to detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus

  • Three assays targeting SARS-CoV-2 regions with low genetic mutation risk (orf-1ab, S and N protein target)
  • Highly sensitive and specific; increased confidence in results and accuracy
  • Targeted specificity to 100% of currently available complete genomes for SARS-CoV-2
  • Multiplex kit available with 10,000 reactions per kit for nasopharyngeal samples to help maximize specimen throughput
