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:

      • a sectioned architecture
      • an add-on modular system
      • more efficient workflow
      • batch testing (up to 100 tests/2 hr.)
      • single sample testing
      • STAT capability
      • multiparametric testing

      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.

      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.
