Enhanced liver fibrosis test

The Siemens Healthineers ELF Test is a routine, standardized, direct-biomarker panel for prognostic risk assessment in patients with advanced fibrosis due to NASH. Using a routine blood sample and mathematical algorithm, it generates a score that assesses the risk of disease progression by assessing active, dynamic fibrosis rather than the damage it has caused.Siemens Healthineers

Compact solution for BNP

Tosoh’s ST AIA-PACK BNP is a rapid 20-minute assay for assessing heart failure. It utilizes the Shionogi antibody targeted against BNP and pro-BNP, which are the active biomarkers for assessing heart failure and is not influenced by renal function. Measurement range is 4-2000 pg/mL and has a 90-day calibration stability.

Introducing new technology

Rees Scientific’s new 5G Wi-Fi technology will be releasing soon. 5G Wi-Fi offers the same reliability, security and flexibility as the Z3 Wireless System. It’s desigciened to reduce the overall installation process and is great for remote sites. It also works with the full line of Rees Scientifi­c sensors.Rees Scientific

Multiplex LC-MS/MS system

Shimadzu’s Nexera QX incorporates dedicated sample introduction streams, which eliminates waiting for column equilibration and system flushing, for continuous operation of the mass spectrometer. The system’s autosamplers, stream-dedicated injection valves and washing pumps deliver ultra-fast performance with ultra-low carryover. Dedicated software offers a single point of control.Shimadzu Scientific Instruments

C. diff assay

The TECHLAB C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE assay simultaneously detects GDH antigen and Toxins A and B in a single test.TECHLAB

Platform for workflow improvement

Analytics capabilities offer access to real-time insights including volume, turnaround time and operational spend. Use the platform’s operations management features to improve internal collaboration and put the customer at the forefront.hc1

FDA-cleared assay for Mycoplasma genitalium

Expand your STI offering to include M. gen testing. Hologic’s Aptima Mycoplasma genitalium assay is a highly-sensitive, rRNA-based NAAT that can detect characteristically low M. gen bacterial loads with up to 100% sensitivity. Streamline testing with Aptima assay and collection through a one-step, direct-load workflow on the Panther system.Hologic

Sample transport system

The UniTranz-RT 3ml filled vial and 6” sterile ultrafine flock swab is designed for the collection and preservation of viruses, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma. The ready-to-use system can accommodate different sample sites and is stable at room temperature, and features a leakproof, self-centering cap and a shelf life of 18 months.Puritan Medical Products

Specimen transportation system

SARSTEDT’s Tempus600 is a dedicated system for sending specimen tubes quickly and reliably to the laboratory. Sample tubes are placed directly into a sending station and arrive within seconds to the laboratory for processing without carrier batching. Samples arrive continuously as sent, reducing peaks for faster and more predictable workflow.SARSTEDT, Inc.

Early Lyme disease detection

The ZEUS Borrelia Modified Two-Tiered Testing (MTTT) algorithm improves detection of early Lyme disease by up to 30% compared to the Standard Two-Tiered Testing (STTT) algorithm. The STTT algorithm requires a 2nd tier immunoblot, which adds subjectivity in results interpretation and reduces sensitivity in measuring acute Lyme disease.ZEUS Scientific

Blood gas testing system

Werfen’s GEM Premier 5000 analyzer with integrated CO-Oximetry panel for POC and centralized laboratory testing, offers Arterial Blood Gas (ABG), Electrolytes, Glu, Lac, Hct, tHb, O2Hb, COHb, HHb, MetHb, sO2, tBili, from a single whole blood sample. Self-contained GEM PAK cartridges incorporate all components for patient testing and are maintenance-free.Werfen

Critical care analyzer

Prime Plus offers multiple critical care tests. Blood oxygenation, tissue perfusion status, acid/base balance, electrolyte balance, fluid balance, glycemic control, and kidney function tests are available from 90 microliters of blood in one minute at the point-of-care. Test menu includes pH, PCO2, PO2, Na, K, Cl, iCa, iMg, Glucose, Lactate, BUN/Urea, Creatinine, Hct, Hb, ePV, MCHC, SO2%, CO-Oximetry.Nova Biomedical 

Reshaping scalable automation

The XN-9100 scalable and modular automated hematology system offers decreased turnaround times, while optimizing staffing efficiency. Maintain automatic workload balancing, hands-free rerun/reflex testing and fully automated reflexive slide preparation. Configure your system with a variety of analyzers that include the XN-10 and XN-20 hematology analyzers.Sysmex

Real-time RT-PCR molecular system

Revogene is a real-time RT-PCR platform with single analyte and multiplexing capability. The simplified sample prep in minutes, and ability to perform different assays simultaneously in the same run, provides flexibility to a laboratory’s workflow. The compact footprint, user-friendly interface, and bidirectional communication capability allows Revogene to integrate into any laboratory. Meridian Bioscience

RNA ISH probes

AMPIVIEW RNA probes combine the precision of targeted, sequence-specific RNA probes with the superior sensitivity of Enzo’s patented loopRNA detection technology, thus making AMPIVIEW RNA probes one of the most sensitive means for holistic visualization of nucleic acid targets in tissue and cells, while preserving the morphology of the sample.Enzo Biochem

UIBC calibration verification

The SEKISUI Diagnostics DC-Lineate is a trilevel calibration/linearity material that is used in conjunction with assays for the quantitative determination of UIBC levels in clinical samples.SEKISUI Diagnostics
