VIDAS is an automated, muliparametric immunoassay system.This uniquely designed testing device stores the calibration in the analyzer’s memory, thus optimizing the cost-per-patient result. Plus, with its ready-to-use reagents, minimum maintenance, ease of use and uni/bi-directional interface, labor cost is also optimized. Automation and kinetic assay reactions yield rapid turnaround time.
The VIDAS system allows for a flexible work routine with:
The quality of the VIDAS is unsurpassed—it is automated, has no carryover, uses fluorescence reading, is self-testing and has ready-to-use bar-code-labeled reagents.
The Automated, Multiparametric Immunoassay System:
VIDAS reagents are pre-calibrated. Calibration curves are provided for each lot in bar code format. Recalibration is only required once every 14 days, using a calibrator included in the reagent kit.
The VIDAS test system uses a single-dose ready-to-use reagent.
The SPR® acts as a solid phase for the reactionand is coated with antigens or antibodies.
The strip contains all the reagents required for the reaction.
The SPR acts as a pipetting device. At each stage of the reaction, it aspirates the reagents in and out.
This original concept prevents any inter-reagent or inter-sample contamination. In addition, the absence of tubing, syringes and needles reduces system maintenance to a minimum.
The VIDAS system uses the ELFA assay principle, combining the ELISA test method with a final blue fluorescent reading. This technology ensures excellent result sensitivity and specificity.
Over 15.000 VIDAS systems installed worldwide.
The quality of the VIDAS is unsurpassed-it is automated, has no carryover, uses fluorescence reading, is self-testing and has ready-to-use bar-code-labeled reagents.
