The DreamPrep® NAP workstation featuring Zymo Research

Jump start your microbiome studies!

The DreamPrep NAP workstation featuring Zymo Research can simplify your nucleic acid extraction workflows – today and in the future. It offers an optimized example workflow for the ZymoBIOMICS™ 96 MagBead DNA Kit, developed and verified in close collaboration with Zymo Research.

Let DreamPrep NAP work for you, while you plan your next experiment!



Simplify your workflows.

Combining the Fluent® Automation Workstation and Fluent GX Assurance Software, DreamPrep NAP is a fully customizable solution providing walkaway processing of magnetic bead-based protocols to meet your current and future needs.

This preconfigured, user-oriented system helps you to get up to speed faster, allowing you to concentrate on your experiments instead of your automation. Standardized workflows help you to obtain consistent results and minimize the risk of errors, while reducing training requirements and operator-to-operator variability.

Microbiome-grade DNA from any sample.

ZymoBIOMICS DNA kits offer efficient and unbiased lysis of Gram-positive and negative bacteria, fungi, protozoans and viruses, generating nucleic acid samples ready for immediate microbiome or metagenome analysis.

The simple workflow has been fully automated and optimized to ensure inhibitor-free DNA – even for very low abundance organisms – from feces, soil, water, biofluids, biofilms, etc.*

Integrated quantification and normalization.

Choose a Frida Reader™ built into the workdeck for UV absorbance-based quantification and purity assessment in a hanging drop, avoiding the consumption of rare and precious samples, or an Infinite® 200 PRO reader in M Nano+ configuration integrated below the workdeck, to provide built-in quantification and normalization.

Watch the webinar on demand with Dr. Philipp Lemal

Dr. Philipp Lemal gives a basic introduction to the gut microbiome, presents latest findings on the correlation between the composition of the microbiome and various diseases and talks about the development of an improved diagnostic pipeline. The automation of DNA extraction from stool samples is the first step to reduce analysis costs, increase throughput and thus make the medical benefits of microbiome analysis available to the general public.

Watch the webinar on demand with Dr. Christopher Mason

Dr. Christopher Mason, Professor of Genomics, Physiology, and Biophysics at Weill Cornell Medicine, discusses new discoveries in RNA- and DNA-sequencing across dozens of cities on Earth, including the analysis of wastewater as a means to track SARS-CoV-2 levels. And be surprised by investigations on new species found on the International Space Station.

Increased productivity with intuitive software

Fluent Gx Assurance Software

FluentControl™ is designed to empower scientists to build, optimize and maintain their own assays, without the need for computer programming expertise. By separating the touchscreen-based everyday workflow interactions from the configuration of new assays on a PC, Tecan has created ideal tools for both.

The Fluent Gx Assurance Software offers advanced features to streamline regulatory activities, helping laboratories to demonstrate compliance with minimal manual input.
