Dubai, 8 December 2016 -- Tosoh and DiaSys announce a collaboration for clinical laboratory testing with the combination of Tosoh’s new generation analysers (AIA-CL1200 for immunoassay and G11 for HbA1c) and DiaSys’ BioMajesty® JCA-BM6010/C. Instruments are linked through Evoline and Evoline Manager, Tosoh’s open laboratory automation and middleware solution. The collaboration takes place to address current requirements regarding clinical testing.
Tosoh AIA-CL1200 and G11
Tosoh has a significant experience with the development of high-specific and high-sensitive immunoassays. The company is also a pioneer in the field of automated HPLC-analysis for the measurement of HbA1c. During Medlab Middle East, Tosoh will be showing the AIA-CL1200, the newest generation of midsize chemiluminescence immuno-analysers, as well as the G11, the latest model of HbA1c analysers. Both instruments excel in sensitivity, stability and speed (1 minute per HbA1c analysis).
Like all other Tosoh automated immunoassay analysers, the AIA-CL1200 utilises the unique CL-AIA Pack twin cup format. The AIA-CL1200 is an easy-to-use, very fast, high sensitive and precise instrument. First results are available within 15 minutes, with an equivalent of up to 120 tests per hour. The principle of “one cup – twice the immunoassay power” ensures time and money saving (1 cup = 1 test).
DiaSys BioMajesty JCA-BM6010/C
The BioMajesty® JCA-BM6010/C is designed to increase the performance of medium-sized laboratories. It is also the ideal system for speciality laboratories. The throughput of up to 1,200 tests/hour, 43 reagent and 84 sample positions are a guarantee for flexibility in everyday use. It handles a full menu of photometric and immunoturbidimetric assays as well as Na, K, Cl determinations by indirect ISE methods.
Special emphasis has been spent on the software to combine highest user friendliness with optimally secured results. A special feature is the integrated on-board hemolysis function for optimized HbA1c determination. Dynamic range extension avoids additional dilutions and a dedicated STAT port allows for immediate STAT processing. Clot detection and liquid level sensor technology ensures confidence in results. The analyser works with very small sample volumes, making it the perfect instrument in pediatric and geriatric settings. The BioMajesty® JCA-BM6010/C is the system with the smallest footprint in its class hence saving precious laboratory space. DiaSys supplies ready-to-use reagents well known for their excellent on-board stability with the instrument. The result in conjunction with extremely low reagent consumption is cost efficiency on the highest order.
Open Lab Automation
The integration of a Tosoh and DiaSys analyser into the automation implementation of a clinical laboratory offers significant benefits to the working processes and is intended to achieve the following goals:
- Integration of multi competence technologies;
- Improvement of laboratory turnaround time with consistent throughput over time;
- Simultaneous management of routine and emergency workloads;
- Automation of repetitive manual procedures;
- Elimination of the need for the pre-sorting of specimens;
- Qualification of operators’ work, taking them off tasks associated with pre-analysis;
- Simple connection and a sophisticated data transmission system ensure analytical quality with minimal maintenance.
