Open system for nucleic-acid testing.



Jaguar offers laboratories a cost-effective, rapid solution for nucleic-acid testing. It is an open system, enabling automation of manual laboratory-developed tests resulting in a virtually unlimited menu. This flexibility will help prevent obsolescence ob·so·les·cent
