BD PrepMate™ System


What is the BD PrepMate™ System?
The BD PrepMate™ system is an automated accessory to the BD PrepStain™ slide processor. BD PrepMate™ system automates the enrichment process of mixing and dispensing the specimen onto the BD SurePath™ density reagent.
The BD PrepMate™ system thoroughly mixes, and accurately removes the specimen from the preservative vial. It layers the specimen onto a density reagent in a centrifuge tube. The BD PrepMate™ automated process handles one to twelve specimens per cycle.
To reduce the possibility of specimen contamination, the vial caps are not removed during the process. The BD PrepMate™ system provides a unique puncture-top process that mixes and dispenses with the cap on. Vials, syringes, and tubes are disposable and may not be reused.

  • Throughput to process 12 specimens in less than 4 minutes.
