After a lot of under the hood work, we are happy to announce Version 2.0 of the HepatoPredict kit, more environmentally friendly, with improved stability and compatibility.
Version 2.0 of the HepatoPredict kit was shrunk to two boxes and an overall reduced volume. By optimising the format and number of boxes, we simplified the usage of the kit, reduced 30% of the total shipping weight, decreased 35% of the amount of dry ice required for each shipment and cut off 33% of the overall costs associated to shipping operations. The new cardboard is also 100% recyclable, and it is under the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification, assuring that the material come from responsibly managed forests and recycled materials.
The are other improvements in this version: HepatoPredict V2.0 has now a shelf life of one year; it is compatible with more equipments (QuantStudioTM 5 Real-Time PCR System, 96-well, 0.1 mL, QuantStudioTM 5 Dx Real-Time PCR System 0,2mL, Bio-Rad CFX96 C1000 Touch, Bio-Rad CFX96 Opus Dx , Applied Biosystems ABI 7500); it is now UK CA marked, in addition to the already existing CE IVD.
We have also updated the MyOphiomics platform (V4.4.) which, in addition to several bug fixes and a simplified login process, now has more flexibility in generating signatures in the HepatoPredict reports.
