  • The first 3-part differential hematology analyzer designed for the

    Decentralized Laboratory

    BUDAPEST, HUNGARY (June 08, 2017): The Diatron, global provider of hematology and clinical chemistry analyzers, will display their Aquila 3-part differential hematology analyzer (60 samples /hour throughput) at the upcoming AACC Meeting in San Diego, California on the 1-3 of August, 2017.

    Specifically designed for the De-Centralized laboratory, this small analyzer has low reagent consumption (<12ml), requires only a small sample size (20ul) and has an on-board reagent pack** (sufficient for approximately 200 measurements). While only taking up a small footprint, the analyzer can be used in many locations to include small laboratories as well as in many point-of-care applications. The low instrument reagent consumption coupled with its on-board reagent pack ensure that the shipping, storage and usage of reagents will provide enhanced ease of use as well as significant cost reductions.

    The newly developed analyzer, while requiring little bench space, features a large touch screen, an intuitive user interface, an optional back-up battery pack and extended connectivity options.

    Please visit us at our joint 100+ m2 STRATEC-Diatron booth No 2549 at the AACC Meeting to learn more.

  • Liquid biopsy is a new technology for detection and analysis of biomarkers in blood or other body fluids without the need of invasive procedures. One important analyte is cell-free circulating DNA (cfDNA). The main challenges in working with cfDNA are the low concentration (1 - 50 ng/ml) and the high degree of fragmentation of cfDNA (< 500 bp). An additional complication is that the circulating tumor DNA only accounts for up to 20 % of the total cfDNA. Therefore processing higher sample volumes, typically in the range of several milliliters, is required.

    The InviGenius® PLUS

    STRATEC Molecular has developed the InviMag® Free Circulating DNA Kit/ IG which enables efficient, standardized and fully automated purification of cfDNA fragments from 4 ml of plasma samples  on the InviGenius® PLUS instrument. The InviGenius® PLUS simplifies laboratory workflows by using a walk-away robotic system for a magnetic bead based isolation of nucleic acids from up to 12 samples in parallel. Using this automated method the isolated cfDNA is concentrated in an elution volume of 80 µl for further detection and analysis.  In addition STRATEC Molecular offers a qPCR assay - the InviQuant GeneCount 40 - to reliably quantitate the extracted cfDNA, e.g. prior to use in NGS or other downstream applications.

    For methylation analysis STRATEC Molecular developed the InviMag® Bisulfite Conversion Kit/ IG in order to perform highly robust bisulfite conversion on DNA and cfDNA, also fully automated on the InviGenius® PLUS.

    Benefits

    • Validated and ready-to-use workflow from sample to extracted cfDNA

    • Fully automated cfDNA extraction from plasma samples

    • System works for single sample volumes of 4 ml

    • Proprietary validated qPCR assay available for quantification of extracted cfDNA

    • Fully automated workflow from sample via cfDNA extraction to bisulfite converted DNA

    • Purity of cfDNA fit for qPCR, ddPCR, NGS, Pyrosequencing, mass array etc.

    Let Diatron power your upgrade to fast and sensitive random access chemiluminescence immunoassay instrumentation

    BUDAPEST, HUNGARY (June 08, 2017):  Diatron, the global provider of immunoassay, hematology and clinical chemistry analyzers, , will display their chemiluminescence immunoassay platform KleeYa® (120 samples /hour throughput) at the upcoming AACC Meeting in San Diego, California on the 1-3 of August, 2017.

    Many companies who have their core business in ELISA markets are looking to upgrade to faster, more sensitive immunoassays and random access instrumentation.

    To address the evolving customer requirements, Diatron now offers a new, state of the art chemiluminescence immunoassay platform - The KleeYa®, along with its associated trigger solution for Acridinium Ester Flash chemiluminescence. As part of this new platform, and to support your efficient transition, we are partnering with a leading kit component supplier.    

    So that ELISA kit manufacturers can rapidly transition to the next chapter, we provide an initial development and support package to facilitate and accelerate the initiation of your assay development for this new and innovative KleeYa® platform.

    To allow prospective partners to take advantage of this innovative platform, we have three different commercial models available, thus allowing you to choose the model that best fits your business strategy.

    KleeYa® is a fully-automated random access chemiluminescence immunoassay platform, optimized to work with both flash and glow immunoassays. Apart from high flexibility in application, the system comes along with smart consumables. A unique trigger cartridge technology coupled with an innovative reagent cartridge design enhancing ease of use and reliability while, at the same time, reducing hands-on time and footprint. The system processes up to 120 tests per hour with continuous loading capability. RFID tags on cartridges allow information about the particular reagents and their consumption, reducing waste and improving efficient reagent management.
