Fully automated, walk-away, random access instrument for the Immuno Fluorecence Assay on Glass.
UNIQO is the new high-performance automated system for the IFA procedure, from slide preparation to test reading and validation. It provides laboratories with an all-in-one solution that integrates automated IFA protocol with complete slide mounting, including coverslip, image acquisition, analysis and archiving. UNIQO supports standardization by eliminating the inconsistency of human intervention and maximizing the accuracy of the overall IFA process, from accurate dispensing and mounting of IFA slides, to more objective image acquisition and analysis. Innovative software manages and controls the entire analytical workflow ensuring optimal slide processing and image acquisition for fully automated analysis of immunofluorescence signals and effective data management. In addition, the integrated virtual microscope allows navigation and review of the digitized slide from remote locations, eliminating the problem of storing the slides and preserving the fluorescent signal over time. The Indirect Fluorescence Immune Expert can focus directly on the results and reporting.
- Automatic mounting of the coverslip without imperfections
- Lids are automatically placed to preserve slides throughout the procedure
- Slide digitization: excellent image acquisition with high emissions even at low magnifications
