Ortho Clinical Diagnostics (Raritan, NJ, USA) exhibited its wide range of VITROS diagnostic testing and automation solutions at MEDLAB Middle East 2021.

Ortho’s VITROS Automation Solutions presented at the event are open, flexible and scalable solutions. Versatile, effective, and reliable, VITROS Automation Solutions combined with VITROS Chemistry and Immunodiagnostic Systems delivers high-quality results, faster than VITROS Systems alone. Ortho VITROS Systems makes labs powerfully efficient with minimal training time, six-month calibration, and a 96.5% first pass yield that erases the need for repeat testing. While non-VITROS systems use large, costly amounts of purified water, one VITROS System saves 160,000 liters of water per year. Ortho showcased the VITROS XT Systems that embrace DIGITAL CHEMISTRY™ and are powered by a new digital reflectometer, connecting lab ecosystems better than ever before, driving efficiency, productivity and improving the quality of care provided to patients.

Ortho also highlighted its COVID-19 testing solutions at the event, including the VITROS antibody assays for COVID-19. This included VITROS Anti-SARS-COV-2 Total test which qualitatively measures total (ALL) antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus (IgG, IgM, IgA and other isotypes) and therefore has the widest clinical utility to measure immune response. This antibody test can be used to aid in the diagnosis of acute or past infection in conjunction with other laboratory tests and or clinical information. In addition, this test may be used in population surveillance for viral exposure. Similarly, the VITROS Anti-SARS-COV-2 IgG test qualitatively measures IgG Antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This antibody test has long-term applicability in identifying patients with an adaptive immune response, indicating recent or prior infection. In addition, this test may be used in population surveillance for viral exposure. In addition Ortho showcased the VITROS SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test that produces accurate, clinically reliable results on its high-volume VITROS Systems. These analyzers normally run a broad menu of over 150 different tests from blood and body fluid samples, but now are also able to run samples derived from swabs.
