ThinPrep® Genesis Processor

Same sample, more control, greater possibilities for lab automation.




    Enabling Cytology Labs to Do More

    Genesis is a slide preparation processor for gyn cytology and non-gyn cytology applications, as well as automated aliquoting for molecular testing. The multiple applications can come from the same ThinPrep® PreservCyt Collection Vial. It offers automated chain of custody, streamlined cytology processing, and hands-free sample aliquoting in a single instrument. This system promotes confidence in results while optimising lab performance.1

    Reduces the Chance of Errors


    Peace of mind: Barcode verification ensures chain-of-custody.

    Reduce human error: Automated aliquoting standardises pipetting.

    Reduce sample repeats: Automated decapping prevents spills or lost samples.

    Reduce risk: Closed vial dispersion reduces risk of cross-contamination.


    Ergonomic & Intuitive Design


    Reduce repetitive and manual tasks: Automated barcode printing eliminates need to manually label or write on tubes and slides.

    Reduce personal injury: Automated decapping, capping and aliquoting helps limit repetitive strain injuries.


    Improve Your Workflow


    Increase workflow efficiency: Automated aliquoting replaces a manual process and minimises additional sample handling and barcode printing eliminates the manual slide label writing step.

    Increase workflow flexibility: Convenient and intuitive barcode setup and label design capabilities at your fingertips.

    Increase laboratory productivity: Compact footprint saves space in your lab.
