BIO-FLASH is a rapid-response chemiluminescent analyser for use by clinical reference and hospital laboratories. It offers full automation of a broad menu of highly accurate QUANTA Flash immunoassays for autoimmunity testing. Tests that previously required significant hands-on time can now be automated on an intuitive and rapid system. BIO-FLASH and the QUANTA Flash reagents are classified as moderately complex under the Clinical Laboratories Improvements Act (CLIA), making the system accessible to a wide range of laboratories and their staff. The first result is generated in as little as 30 minutes, with additional results generated one per minute thereafter. The analyser incorporates chemiluminescent technology, representing an important advance in accuracy and precision for immunoassay testing. Other benefits of the system include an increased analytical measuring range, onboard dilution and stored calibration. A comprehensive menu of QUANTA Flash reagents is available, including tests to aid in the diagnosis of celiac disease, vasculitis, antiphospholipid syndrome and connective tissue diseases. This menu will continue to expand as INOVA develops additional autoimmune assays.
