AXA Diagnostics, part of Dasit Group S.p.A., which owns several companies in the fields of in-vitro diagnostics and life sciences, showcased updates and new applications of the SkyLAB752 system, its platform for ELISA and IFA automation, at MEDLAB 2017 held in Dubai, UAE from February 6-9, 2017.
Italy-based AXA Diagnostics develops, produces, and markets IVD reagents dedicated to autoimmunity diseases and instruments for the automation of all ELISA and IFA testing. The company’s SkyLAB752 fully automated analyzer can process up to 7 ELISA microplates or up to 28 IFA slides per each working session. The SkyLAB752 is equipped with two innovative dispensing systems that work simultaneously and independently, allowing ELISA and IFA assays to be processed simultaneously in the same working session.
The instrument’s architecture is designed to make it adaptable to processing even the greatest workloads. Designed to be easily integrated with a pre-analytical system, the flexibility of its working area allows the SkyLAB 752 to meet the wide requirements of each lab. At MEDLAB 2017, AXA Diagnostics also showcased reagent kits of its autoimmunity product line, which provides a wide choice of analytical techniques for performing both screening and confirmation testing, as well as allows patients’ follow up. This included ELISA reagent kits for the detection of specific auto-antibodies of the main classes (IgG, IgM and IgA) and their combinations, which are indicative of specific pathological conditions. It also included DOT BLOT reagent kits comprising numerous antigenic profiles for the confirmation of systemic autoimmune and organ specific diseases with several specific pathology markers.
