i6000 – the workhorse of a pathology lab! - (Interface for both clinical and research diagnostics)

When it comes to cancer diagnostics, tissue-based staining is still the gold standard of diagnostic workflow. And when there are thousands of cancer patients – worldwide - waiting eagerly for “their life and death question”, there is no luxury of time! Everyday there could be hundreds of samples waiting to be tested – and so some form of automation and high-throughput becomes mandatory.

Enter the semi-automatic workhorse of cancer diagnostics – the BioGenex i6000TM system. The BioGenex i6000 Elite Dx is a semi-automated, high-throughput, multiplex IHC system that is flexible, efficient and value for the bucks!


With staining capacity of 200 slides in 8 hours (60 slides in 3 hours) and barcoded-matched reagent dispensing system, it minimizes hands-on time and data entry errors. Plus the user-friendly format makes it easy to learn and implement – aiding in effective training and personnel rotation. Plus we have optimized more than 300 protocols with our ready-to-use reagents for the i6000 Elite Dx to assure clean, intense and reproducible staining results.
