Lacopa's portfolio has been replenished with equipment for automating sample preparation of material for cytogenetic studies manufactured by ADS BioTec (Japan).

ADS Biotec, along with its parent company ADSTEC (Japan), is a world leader in the development, production and sale of automated tools and consumables for use in cytogenetic, pathological and research laboratories. Their technologies allow customers to increase productivity and throughput while maintaining a high level of quality and consistency of work.

The complex of equipment that Lacopa now represents on the Russian market includes a device for collecting cells in a state of metaphases, a spreader for applying the resulting material to glass and a device for subsequent coloring of the material.

The solution for cytogenetic laboratories from sample preparation to the analytical stage complements the Metasystems software for karyotyping and FISH analysis.

MetaSystems specializes in the development of systems for automatic scanning, search and analysis of objects in such areas as cytogenetics, oncohematology, toxicology, oncology of solid tumors, forensic medical examination and microbiology. The company also offers DNA probes of its own production to detect structural chromosomal rearrangements and aberrations.
