Assurance® GDS (Genetic Detection System) is an automated nucleic acid amplification system for the detection of pathogenic organisms in foods, ingredients, and environmental samples. The GDS PickPen® PIPETMAX® (PPMX) is an automated magnetic particles and liquid handler for use with Assurance® GDS assays. The PPMX is capable of dispensing GDS reagents which include, Concentration Reagent, Wash Solution, Resuspension Buffer and select media (BHI/DFB). In addition, the PPMX has also been programmed to automate GDS PickPen® Immunomagnetic Separation (IMS) procedures and transfers to amplification tubes
