The CAPILLARYS 2 Flex Piercing System for whole blood hemoglobinopathy/thalassemia testing by capillary electrophoresis (CE) provides high-resolution hemoglobin separation with a throughput of 37 results per hour. The fully automated system has cap piercing capabilities and automatically inverts each tube prior to sampling to ensure thorough homogenization and accurate results. An accurate HbA2 value is provided with no interference from HbS or HbE. Migration zones and drop down menus assist with presumptive hemoglobin variant identification. CAPILLARYS 2 Flex Piercing provides full traceability from bar-coded primary sample tube to final result. Color coding of results by the instrument software allows easy detection of Hb variant samples while reviewing multiple patients simultaneously. A complete instrument test menu includes HbA1c, serum and urine protein and immunotyping, and CDT (chronic alcohol abuse marker). All tests are FDA-cleared.
