    Bring Simplicity & Performance to In-House Testing

    LDTs are an essential part of diagnostics. Patients with certain medical conditions depend on these in-house developed tests when other options are not available. When laboratories process LDTs alongside In vitro Diagnostic (IVD) assays, it can help save time and expenditures, enhancing efficiency. Panther Fusion Open Access technology puts lab technicians in control of their workflow. From laborious in-house assay development to delivering up to 335 results in an 8 hour shift.1

    Fully Automate & Consolidate Your Molecular Platforms

    Run lab-developed tests together with CE-IVD assays on the fully-automated, random access Panther Fusion® System to further enhance your lab’s flexibility and productivity.


    Fully automate LDTs from extraction to results.


    Run multiple LDTs interleaved with IVDs on a single integrated platform.


    Run your LDTs your way with software to generate your own user defined protocols and acceptance criteria.

    Simplify & Scale the Future of Diagnostics

    Panther Fusion Open Access is part of the Hologic Molecular Scalable Solution, a portfolio combining a broad, high performing assay menu with high throughput automation. Designed to flexibly scale to meet your needs, from a single patient result to population level screening.

    Consolidation in Practice

    A workflow study conduced by the University of Wisconsin tested the ability to consolidate and run 5 LDTs plus 7 IVDs on the Panther Fusion with just one full time equivalent (FTE), in one working day.
