Encompass Platform

The EncompassMDx instrument brings together Rheonix's unique technology and industry-standard automation components to provide a powerful workflow and cost-saving model which will bring to market new and existing diagnostic tests.

Elements:

The EncompassMDx instrument includes the following standard equipment:


Workflow:

The EncompassMDx allows unparalleled multi-target "sample-to-answer" workflow. The only user-required step is to load samples and a consumable cartridge; all sample manipulation and assay steps are contained within the system.

Workflow

In the example above, two applications of Rheonix assays consisting of 16 whole-blood samples are tested for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a pharmacogenomic application. The unattended assay time for a highly multiplexed endpoint PCR amplification is roughly 3.5 hours, while a fluorescence-based qPCR application is 60 to 75 minutes. Both applications take roughly 20 minutes of hands-on-time, including replacing consumables and loading samples.

Pipeline:

The Encompass platform's modular architecture allows for rapid development of diagnostic solutions for the complete spectrum of user needs, from medium and high throughput capabilities to point-of-care applications.
