Image Navigator[R] Automated Microscope

Image Navigator[R] is a system that will organize and simplify your Antinuclear Antibody testing. It automatically scans the slides, captures fluorescent images of ANA results for patient samples, and displays them for the Medical Laboratory Scientist to review. The software divides the images into "possible negatives" and "possible positives" for the MLS to review and confirm. Comprehensive review of the results allows the MLS to assign multiple patterns, order and read titers, order additional testing, and generate a variety of reports within the Image Navigator[R] software. The Image Navigator[R] can be interfaced with an LIS if desired. Autoimmune FastTrack Series The Autoimmune Fast Track series, AFT2000[R] and AFT3000[TM], are reliable pipetting robots that automate the entire line of Immuno Concepts' slide and Elisa based assays. Their precision, accuracy and tracking capabilities come together to minimize errors, optimize traceability and provide consistent results while freeing the technologist up to perform other tasks. The instruments' easy set-up, walk-away operation, and minimal maintenance required on a daily, weekly and monthly basis are features that save even more time in the lab. Each AFT2000[R]/ AFT3000[TM] system is customized based on the customer's needs, and thoroughly checked to ensure that liquid pipetting is accurate and precise.

NEUROIMMUNOLOGY ACETYLCHOLINE RECEPTOR AUTOANTIBODY (AChRAb) BINDING AND BLOCKING

The KRONUS Acetylcholine Receptor BINDING and BLOCKING Autoantibody test kits utilize an I125 receptor preparation containing both fetal and mature (adult) acetylcholine receptor subtypes. The presence of both receptor subtypes (a feature not found in conventional AChRAb assays) increases the diagnostic sensitivity of the assay, as certain patient sera may preferentially bind to the mature receptor type.
