Vircell (Granada, Spain) exhibited its powerful automation system and immunoassay testing kits at this year's MEDICA, the world's largest annual medical technology trade fair, which took place from 15-18 November in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Vircell is a microbial biotechnology company which develops, manufactures and markets ready-to-use kits for the diagnosis of esoteric infectious diseases. It is specialized in the development and production of ready-to-use reagents for the diagnosis of infectious diseases in humans by different techniques – ranging from the traditional cell culture to the most innovating developments in the field of molecular biology.

At MEDICA 2021, Vircell presented VIRCLIA, its powerful automation system with a built-in reader, intelligent racks and intuitive software. The VIRCLIA automation system offers 192 patient sample positions and fully-automated reader options (EIA or CLIA+EIA). It features a probe-mounted camera for real-time process monitoring and remote diagnostics, along with a built-in barcode reader for streamlined loading and lower sample tracking errors.

Among the immunoassay testing kits showcased by Vircell at the event was the Chlamydia ELISA indirect immunoenzyme assay to test antibodies against chlamydia in human serum/plasma which is suitable for automated ELISA systems. Vircell also highlighted Pneumobact IFA, an indirect immunofluorescent assay kit to simultaneously test IgG or IgM antibodies against the main ethiological bacterial agents causing respiratory tract infections: Legionella pneumophila sero group 1, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Coxiella burnetii, Chlamydophila pneumoniae and Chlamydophila psittaci. The kit enables simultaneous detection of the main bacteria causing atypical pneumonia and easy results reading.
