QIAstat-Dx Analyzer 2.0 with Software 1.6 release enables mobile access to test results.

QIAGEN announced the release of the QIAstat-Dx Analyzer 2.0, including the Software 1.6 upgrade, a significant enhancement to the widely-used QIAstat-Dx Analyzer 1.0.

The upgraded diagnostic system, powered by the new QIAstat-Dx Operational Module PRO with a 64‑bit processor and 4GB of RAM, introduces the Remote Results Application. The new feature, accessible through the QIAsphere cloud and exclusively available with QIAstat‑Dx Analyzer 2.0, allows users to view, comment and confirm diagnostic test results directly from their desktop and mobile devices in any location.

Alternatively, the QIAstat-Dx Analyzer 2.0 enables in-house visibility of test results over a shared network.

The QIAsphere Insights epidemiology dashboards have also been enhanced, allowing users to view local and global pathogen epidemiology data from all connected QIAstat-Dx instruments. All data is de‑identified before processing and adheres to the highest standards of data protection.

Additional upgrades in the QIAstat-Dx Analyzer 2.0 include enhanced instrument responsiveness, automatic software updates and notifications, support for 12 languages, and improved remote system management and security features.

The QIAstat-Dx system, designed for laboratory use, employs cost-efficient, single-use cartridges with built‑in sample processing and on-board reagents. Utilizing multiplex real-time PCR, it detects and differentiates between multiple pathogens, with results in about an hour. QIAstat-Dx also provides easy‑to‑view cycle threshold (Ct) values and amplification curves.
