Switzerland, May 2th, 2022 – Inpeco, the global leader in Total Laboratory Automation, announced that an agreement has been established with Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science, to develop connectivity between the Inpeco FlexLab TM laboratory automation system (LAS) and the Thermo Fisher Cascadion SM Clinical Analyzer. This interface will enable primary tubes on the Inpeco LAS to be transported to the Cascadion system for automated loading, pre-treatment, and analysis.

“This development, using the market leading automation and software provided by Inpeco, will further enhance the capability of the Cascadion system in managing samples in a fully automated manner. It will increase and enhance the analytical scope for laboratories using an LAS supported by Inpeco and add additional productivity benefits for Cascadion users” said Heikki Immonnen, director of product lifecycle and marketing, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The Cascadion SM Clinical Analyzer is currently commercially available in the US and Europe, with continued expansion into new geographies. After the initial launch of Cascadion SM 25-OH Vitamin D assay, the CE-IVD marked Cascadion SM Immunosuppressants Panel was launched in Europe during 2020.

Inpeco’s FlexLab™ automation system grows with the changing needs of the customer, as adding modules or new analyser connections is easy by design. Moreover, FlexLab™ is the only truly open automation system that allows labs to connect the analysers of their choice and the specialties they need, making it a future proof investment that drives premium quality patient care.

“The development of the interface to the Inpeco LAS system will make this a first to market tracked solution for LC-MS/MS technology”, said Francesco Parodi, total lab automation product manager, Inpeco. “We are excited at the prospect of having Cascadion linked to our system and extend our range of analyser connectivity to include LC-MS/MS technology”.
