Awareness Technology’s new analyser improves syphilis testing
Awareness Technology has recently introduced their ChemWell RPR Automated Nontreponemal analyser for the detection of syphilis. The company reports that it is the “most significant innovation to syphilis testing in the last 30 years”.
The analyser provides qualitative testing and screening for syphilis in human serum or plasma utilizing an advanced camera and software algorithm to analyse each sample.
In place of manual RPR cards, the system uses 4 standard 48-well microwell plates to analyse up to 192 samples per hour with no user intervention. High-resolution images captured by an advanced optical system are interpreted by a proven algorithm and provide an accurate and reliable negative or positive result based on the captured images.
An additional test can be run on positive samples to determine titers up to 1:2048 dilution for therapeutic monitoring. The software is included with the instrument at no additional cost and features an intuitive interface that allows for easy navigation and use.
Automated features such as fluid handling, mixing, timing, image capture, image processing, and reporting are all handled by the software.
Awareness Technology, with HQ in Palm City, Florida, US, develops, manufactures, and markets high quality in-vitro diagnostic instrumentation, and diagnostic test kits.
