Vircell (Granada, Spain) is participating in this year's edition of MEDICA, the world's largest annual medical technology trade fair, which is taking place from 14-17 November in Düsseldorf, Germany. More than 5,000 exhibitors from 70 countries are presenting their newest products and ideas at MEDICA which draws 120,000 trade visitors from over 170 countries every year.

At MEDICA 2022, Vircell is showcasing its all-in-one CLIA system, VIRCLIA LOTUS which is designed for the automatization of infectious serology with the VirCia Monotest kits. Vircell’s AmpliRun Total Controls are external run controls to monitor the accuracy and precision of the complete analytical process (extraction & amplification). These noninfectious lyophilized run controls include the complete inactivated microorganism in a matrix that mimics human specimens. In combination with the VirClia Monotests, laboratories can daily process a large panel of more than 80 tests with complete traceability. Thanks to the versatility of the VIRCLIA LOTUS fully-automated chemiluminescence solution and wide range of tests for infectious serology, laboratories can process their analysis on a daily basis, without the need to batch samples or refer them to outside centers.

Vircell is also highlighting its VIRPLEX Real Time PCR kits for infectious diseases testing alongside the Aspergillus Galactomannan Ag VIRCLIA Monotest. The test uses sandwich chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA) technology for the detection of Aspergillus galactomannan antigen in serum, plasma and human bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples.
