Chemiluminescence assays for the RA Analyzer 10
New CE-marked chemiluminescence immunoassays (ChLIA) for detection of antibodies against Borrelia, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV-CA, EBNA), proteinase 3 (PR3) and phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R) on the EUROIMMUN RA Analyzer 10 system are available now. Different immunoglobulin classes can be analysed depending on the application, with assays encompassing anti-Borrelia IgG and IgM, anti-EBV-CA IgG and IgM, anti-EBNA IgG, anti-PR3 IgG and anti-PLA2R IgG. The random access system, used in conjunction with the ChLIA products, functions as a compact automation solution in small- to medium-sized laboratories, or complements high-throughput-devices in large-sized laboratories. Test- and lot-specific information, including stored standard curves, are imported into the database by means of an RFID code, enabling error-free and convenient loading, along with efficient and secure test evaluation. The EURO-IMMUN RA Analyzer 10 allows continuous loading — also as part of a laboratory track system — to ensure that every sample is processed with minimal effort as a single determination. The ChLIA technology offers short reaction times, with total analysis in 30 minutes or less. In addition, the preferred processing of emergency samples (STAT) gives laboratories with different requirements and sample volumes flexibility in their laboratory routine.
