Laboratories are focused on improving efficiency, accuracy, and most importantly, productivity. Now, a complete system for indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) slide processing and digital immunofluorescence imaging allows labs to increase their productivity while leaving them free to focus on more important tasks.

ZEUS Scientific’s (Branchburg, NJ, USA) new dIFine 30 System combines its next-generation digital IFA imaging and interpretation system with its user-friendly and efficient benchtop instrument for IFA slide processing, including cover slipping. The SP30, a fully automated IFA slide processor for the dIFine digital immunofluorescence system, is an easy-to-use and efficient walk-away benchtop instrument. Capable of processing up to 240 samples on 30 IFA slides, including cover slipping, the SP30 IFA slide processor for dIFine is engineered to enhance laboratory workflow and guarantee superior results.

ZEUS dIFine represents the future of IFA imaging and pattern recognition. This FDA-approved, automated digital scanner equipped with intelligent software is designed to acquire, analyze, display, and store digital images of ZEUS HEp-2 IFA slides. ZEUS dIFine rapidly generates positive/negative results and has received FDA clearance to suggest eight common ANA HEp-2 patterns (homogenous, speckled, centromere, nucleolar, nuclear dots, nuclear membrane, cytoplasmic, ribosomal, and mitochondrial). Additionally, dIFine can quickly locate and identify mitotic cells to aid in pattern identification. The ability to rapidly view and validate all negative samples with a single mouse click saves the user precious time. The built-in pattern atlas serves as a reference and a useful training tool, allowing for side-by-side comparison of images with ZEUS proprietary images aligned with ICAP nomenclature.
