Vircell (Granada, Spain) exhibited its new instruments, VirClia Lotus and qSPEED-OLIGO, at MEDLAB Middle East, an event for showcasing the latest technology and knowledge in the IVD and medical laboratory market that was held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from February 3-6, 2020.

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 this year’s MEDLAB Middle East, Vircell exhibited VirClia Lotus, its new Chemiluminescence system (CLIA) designed to process diagnostic immunoassays VirClia Monotest. The VirClia Lotus CLIA system offers random access with continuous loading, STAT function to manage urgent samples, and positive identification of samples and strips through an internal scanner. It delivers the firsts results in one hour (new result every 30 seconds), 40 tests in one hour 25 minutes, and 80 tests in two hours 30 minutes with a capacity of 50 primary tubes and/or aliquots.

Vircell also presented its new approach on molecular biology, the qSPEED-OLIGO which is a unique molecular diagnostic tool for real-time PCR multiplex testing of infectious diseases and offers automated identification of positive samples. The qSPEED-OLIGO system includes a two-channel fluorescence thermocycler which allows for the screening of all pathogens (FAM) and for the internal control and sample validation (HEX). It helps rapidly discard negatives and focus only on identifying positive samples. The benchtop modular instrument increases laboratory throughput with automated screening of 48 samples in less than 90 minutes. It provides the advantage of minimum hands-on-time protocol by using pre-dispensed qPCR tubes and sealed cassettes to rule out contamination.
