ADS Biotec, along with its parent company ADSTEC (Japan), is a global leader in the development, manufacture and sale of automated instruments and consumables for use in cytogenetic, pathology and research laboratories.

HANABI-PI Metaphase Chromosome Harvester

The HANABI-PI is specifically created for small to mid-size throughput, enabling processing of up to 16 suspension cultures per run and eliminating variability compared to manual processing methods. Walk away reliability and low maintenance reduces FTE time associated with the manual harvesting process up to 75%.

The HANABI-PI can be integrated with additional options such as reagent sensors, waste fluid tank sensors, extra fixative line, the HANABI-SP2 (auto fixative mixer), and the ultimate HSI feature for accurate data tracking and storage.

The system, HANABI-P1, is available as CE-IVD certified for the European market.

SKU: HCMH-99-00P1; HNB-99-00P1-B (CE-IVD)

ADS Biotec offers the most advanced and state-of -the-art technology in cytogenetics automation. The HANABI-PI Metaphase Chromosome Harvester is designed for today’s cytogenetic laboratories that require increased productivity and throughput — plus it delivers the consistent, professional quality you demand every time.

The HANABI-PI benchmark technology fully automates the multi-step process of preparing and harvesting metaphase cells derived from blood and bone marrow cell cultures and from other cell suspension cultures for cytogenetic analysis.
