EUROIMMUN, a PerkinElmer, Inc. (Waltham, MA; USA) company, is featuring its latest automation solution in molecular diagnostics - the EUROArray Processor - at the 2022 AACC Clinical Lab Expo, alongside its new UNIQO 160 fully automated IIFT system.

The EUROArrayProcessor enables fully automated processing of EUROArray slides. In the pre-PCR area, the software automatically generates a worklist based on the registered primary samples and the requested analysis, and supports the user in the manual preparation of PCRs by providing information on the pipetting layout and the required reagent and sample volumes. Alternatively, for a higher degree of automation, the Pre-NAT II can be included in the workflow for automated preparation of the PCRs. In this case, run information and PCR layout are transferred from the Pre-NAT II to the EUROArrayProcessor.

In the post-PCR area, the EUROArrayProcessor provides dilution of the PCRs with hybridization buffer, the transfer of the hybridization preparations to reagent trays and the incubation, washing and drying of the EUROArray slides. These can then be read out with the EUROArrayScanner. The integrity of the data is ensured by digital transmission between LIS, Pre-NAT II, EUROArrayProcessor and EUROArrayScan software throughout the entire process.

At AACC 2022, EUROIMMUN is introducing the new UNIQO 160 IIFT system which provides full IIFT automation of the next generation – from the primary sample to the micros copy result with only one instrument. The all-in-one solution maximizes the efficiency of the entire IIFT process, encompassing sample preparation, incubation, washing and mounting of slides as well as image acquisition and analysis. After slide incubation and coverslipping, the system generates brilliant fluorescence images using its integrated high-quality microscope.

Also on display at the event will be the EUROPattern Microscope Live, a compact device for live microscopy on the computer touchscreen, as well as fully automated acquisition of high-quality fluorescence images in less than two seconds per image. With both systems, the images are evaluated by EUROLabOffice 4.0 software using deep-learning algorithms for pattern recognition and titer estimation. The middleware generates patient reports, archives all data and communicates bidirectionally with the LIS.
