The VIDAS® immunoassay testing system uses a single-dose, ready-to-use reagent strip system.
The SPR® (Solid Phase Receptacle) is coated with antigens or antibodies.
The Strip contains all the reagents required for the reaction.
The SPR acts as a pipetting and reagent transfer device. At each stage of the reaction, it aspirates the reagents in and out. This original concept prevents any inter-reagent or inter-sample contamination during immunoassay tests. In addition, the absence of tubing, syringes and needles reduces system maintenance to a minimum. (show picture)
The VIDAS system uses the ELFA assay principle, combining the ELISA test method with a final fluorescent reading. This technology ensures excellent result sensitivity and specificity.
