JOIN THE EVOLUTION.

Panther Fusion® Open Access™ is available in the EU and Australia.  In the United States and Canada, Panther Fusion® Open Access™ is under development and not for sale.

Introducing the Panther Fusion® System.

Evolve your laboratory’s capability for molecular testing with the addition of the full Panther Fusion system or add the Panther Fusion module to your existing Panther® system. The Panther Fusion system joins the flexibility of PCR with the power of TMA to give your lab multiple valuable chemistries on a single platform.

Unparalleled Automation.
Uninterrupted Momentum.

The Panther Fusion system continues the legacy of total lab automation that began with the fully automated sample-to-result Panther system. With minimal hands-on time and true walkaway freedom, your team can execute molecular testing with efficiency and amplify productivity throughout your lab.

Unprecedented Flexibility.
Maximum Potential.

The Panther Fusion system is a full, random-access system that gives you access to 32 different assays simultaneously. With full random access, you can continuously load up to 120 patient samples in any assay combination. There is no need to batch any tests or wait for optimal volumes with continuous sample and reagent loading. You can also schedule routine maintenance, which does not require supervision, at your convenience.

  • * The Aptima Zika Virus assay:
  • This test has not been FDA cleared or approved;
  • This test has been authorized by FDA under an EUA for use by authorized laboratories;
  • This test has been authorized only for the detection of RNA from Zika virus and diagnosis of Zika virus infection, not for any other viruses or pathogens; and
  • This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of in vitro diagnostic tests for detection of Zika virus and/or diagnosis of Zika virus infection undersection 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C.§ 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.
