Equipment

With the purpose of increasing test precision and accuracy as well as process automating Euroimmun offers modern equipment. It highly complements the producer's reagent kits. Among them there are simple and space-saving apparatus, multifunctional equipment, spareparts and user-friendly software. The products have been elaborated and patented by Euroimmun and are in full compliance with the modern laboratories requirments. 

Having Euroimmun automated systems installed and exploited in your laboratory will result in:

- Time-saving

- Optimization of reagents consumption 

- Raising laboratory efficiency

- Standardization of test procedures

- Test accuracy and producibility increase, human factor minimization

- Automatization of results evaluation and storing

- Introduction of integrated information system within the laboratory

 

Equipment for ELISA (the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay):

Analyzer I  - 7 plates.

AnalyzerI-2P - 3 plates.

Both apparatus are fully automated and allow for processing of all EUROIMMUN ELISA – autoimmune diagnostics, infectious serology and allergology – with only one system.

It is the open system which provides flexibility: more than 800 validated EUROIMMUN parameters for serum, plasma and cerebrospinal fluid, over 50 or 30 parameters simultaneously.

Operation is convenient, simple and reliable: by scanning QC certificates using a 2D-hand barcode scanner – ready-for-use reagents and preprogrammed assay protocols enable  you to start immediately. It also minimizes the risks of human factor-based mistakes.

Quick loading and efficient time management allow for processing up to 70 or 50 tests per hour – up to 7 or 3 plates, 180 or 144 samples at the start of a run.

Euroimmun Analyzer software can be adjusted to the use of other producers' reagent kits.

Software:

EUROLabOffice: The flexible laboratory management software

  • For all EUROIMMUN products: immunofluorescence (IIFT), ELISA, EUROLINE and Westernblot
  • For all EUROIMMUN product lines: autoimmune diagnostics, infectious serology and allergology
  • Integrated data management: patients, customers, reagent supply
  • Graphic user guidance during analyses and entry of results
  • Final results can be entered directly into the software
  • Digital signature and forwarding of reports via mouse click
  • Compatible with conventional automated laboratory information systems (LIMS), and programmes

 

Equipment for BLOT method:

EuroBlotOne – fully automated system which allows for processing immunoblot tests – from sample ­identification to the final result.

Advantages:

  • All-in-one: complete service and support for reagents, automated processor and software.
  • High walk-away capacity: Up to 44 samples can be analysed in one run.
  • Simplified routine diagnostics: User-friendly software and hardware; minimal maintenance requirements.
  • Reliability: Automated evaluation using the worldwide established and customer-friendly EUROLineScan software; bidirectional connection to LIS available (via EUROLineScan).
  • Security: Integreted barcode identification ensures that the correct samples are pipetted. 
  • Flexibility: Autoimmune diagnostics, infectious serology and allergology on one system; many innovative multiparameter tests available.

EuroBlotMaster – compact blot processor for immunoblot strips.

  • Standardised incubation of immunoblot strips – higher precision and reproducibility
  • Automatisation of all EUROIMMUN immunoblot strips
  • Over 90 validated profiles available (autoantibody diagnostics, infectious serology and allergology)
  • Two models available: for up to 30 or 44 strips per test run
  • Easy operation
  • Combination of different conjugates/tests in one run
  • Walk-away function – fully automated from the start to the end of processing following loading
  • Compatible with modern evaluation systems such as EUROBlotCamera and EUROLineScan

EuroBlotCamera – scanning equipment.

Equipment for indirect immunofluorescence method:

EUROStar III Plus is the apparatus specifically tailored to the requirements of indirect immunofluorescence. The conventional complex illumination fittings have been replaced by the stunningly simple EUROStar Bluelight system. A camera can be fitted to the phototube for digital image recording.

Advantages:

  • It has life expectancy of 50,000 hours with light intensity maintained at a constant level by electronic regulation. Thus, the microscope requires almost no maintenance.
  • It is immediately ready for operation after being switched off and on and offers instant full output. It does not emit any ultraviolet radiation and is explosion-proof.
  • With the EUROIMMUN cLED, the EUROStar Bluelight technology is also available as a separate component to upgrade other microscope types.

EUROPicture programme has been elaborated for the display and management of the digitally recorded fluorescence images. Apart from being user-fiendly and compact the microscope is intended for the use in immunologic, immunochemical, immunogenetic analyses.

 

EUROPattern – is a high-performance automation solution designed by EURO­IMMUN for the evaluation of immunofluorescence slides in autoimmune diagnostics.

IIFT patterns and corresponding titers are automatically identified and given for each patient individually (including mixed patterns).

Validation and export to LIS are carried out at a mouse click using EUROLabOffice (ELO).

 

Advantages:

  • Automated identification of slides via matrix codes.
  • Automated processing of up to 500 analysis positions in succession.
  • 3D hand control for manual operation.
  • Controlled LED (> 50,000 hrs of constant light flux).
  • No dark room required.

IF Sprinter is a fully automated equipment which allows for processing immunofluorescence tests, from the dilution and dispensing of samples to the incubation and washing of microscope slides.

Advantages:

  • Sample identification by automatic scanning of barcodes when racks are inserted into the system.
  • The washing of slides by flooding ensures short processing times and clear immunofluorescence signals.
  • Smooth laboratory routine: the connection to EUROLabOffice (optional) offers unique ways to optimise processes in serology, e. g. automatic generation of worklists.
  • 12 controls and 8 reagents (customised EUROIMMUN racks).
  • Up to 20 slides (depending on the system configuration).
  • 192 dilution positions.
