Sekisui Diagnostics (Lexington, MA, USA) showcased its clinical chemistry and immunoassay analyzers, including the SK500 clinical chemistry system and FastPack IP System, at the 70th Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo held by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) on July 29 – August 2, 2018 in Chicago, USA. AACC is the largest global scientific conference and tradeshow in laboratory medicine, with ~20,000 attendees and 750 exhibitors from around the world. AACC 2018 also provided Plenary Sessions featuring world-renowned scientists and scientific sessions covering a broad range of subjects at various experience levels, and focused “Brown Bag” sessions that gave attendees the opportunity to pose questions in small groups.

Sekisui Diagnostics provides diagnostic products in the areas of diabetes, infectious disease, coagulation, diagnostic enzymes and automated systems. The company’s product lines include clinical chemistry systems and reagents, coagulation systems and reagents, point of care rapid tests and immunoassay system, enzymes and specialty biochemical.

The SK500 Clinical Chemistry System showcased by Sekisui Diagnostics at AACC 2018 is a compact and efficient instrument with a full menu of high quality reagents specifically designed and packaged for the system, including the addition of a drugs of abuse testing menu. Sekisui Diagnostics also showcased the FastPack IP System, a fully automated quantitative immunoassay analyzer which uses sophisticated chemiluminescence technology to deliver accurate test results for commonly ordered tests in 12 minutes or less with a push of a button.

Also featured at the event was the company’s recently launched Silaris Influenza A&B Test which utilizes an affordable, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing platform specifically for point of care infectious disease diagnosis. It offers the simplicity, convenience and procedural familiarity of traditional visual read rapid tests, while providing the superior sensitivity and specificity of laboratory-based PCR testing.
