In May 2018, FTD launched the Fast Track cycler (FTC), the new standardised diagnostic solution fully tailored to the Fast Track lyophilised kits. Using the cutting-edge Magnetic Induction technology, the FTC allows low to mid throughput laboratories to easily increase their efficency and improve their workflows, leading to robust and reliable results.
