Complete Automation for Strip Assays

This flexible and convenient instrument is the ideal solution for full automation, from sample addition to strip scanning. With fast and quiet operation, and a user friendly interface, the Roboblot provides the laboratory with a reliable and robust solution for walk-away strip processing.

Features & Specifications

Reliable –

  • No cross-contamination- disposable sample tips (200ul, 1mL, 5mL)
  • Sample integrity, barcode-ID and LIMS connectivity
  • Accuracy and Standardization – Highly accurate and precise pipetting system

Convenient –

  • Low Dead Volume – saves reagents and cost
  • Automates every part of protocol: sampling, reagents, strip drying, scanning and evaluation
  • Space saving – reduces overall bench space need for processing blots
  • User Friendly – Intuitive User Interface with minimal maintenance required

Flexible/High-Capacity –

  • Can run multiple conjugates per run
  • Runs up to 50 samples per run
  • Multiple assays can be performed simultaneously

Quality Hardware – 

  • Piston pump capacity of 10ul to 2.5mL
  • Peristaltic pumps for aspiration and reagent addition
  • Liquid level detection by pressure sensing
  • Integrated scanner for image capture of developed strips

Semi Automation for Strip Assays

This easy-to-use platform performs all immunoassay steps with the exception of the sample addition. Once samples have been added manually, the instrument can run up to 12 different pre-programmed assays, for automating molecular based and Western Blot strip based assays. The instrument uses reversible peristaltic pumps to dispense reagents to the sample tray, and optionally from the software, the pumps can be reversed to save reagent back into the reagent bottles. The tray for the samples and membrane strips allows for rocking, tilting and level position during incubation. The operator interface is via a keypad and display. Once the samples have been added to the tray the assay is automated, and the developed strips in the tray can be removed for analysis.

Features & Specifications

High Capacity –

  • Up to 12 different pre-programmed assays
  • Up to 50 strips per run
  • Up to 3 conjugates simultaneously

Quality Hardware –

  • Reversible peristaltic pumps for aspiration and dispense
  • Built-in rocker
  • Integral Keypad and LCD display (up to 16 characters)

The S1-Reader for medium-sized and large laboratories

The BLOTrix Reader S1 – is a system for the assessment of blot-strips, line-assays and other diagnostic test strips. The reader allows fast digitalisation of the test strips. The digital images are assessed with the help of the BLOTrix 3.4 software.

The BLOTrix Reader S1 – is a high-performance reading device. It reads up to 50 strips at the same time and thereby takes less than one minute. The fast system reads the strips whilst in the trays and allows the medical personnel to evaluate the strips without having to remove them from the tray again. The cumbersome adhesion to a form sheet can also be dispensed with.

The BLOTrix Reader S1 – the procedure has been optimized for laboratory and clinic employees. The incubated tray is removed from the washer, and then inserted into the reader after a short drying phase. The drawer of the reader is closed and the assessment can be started. The original strips no longer need to be stored for documentation. The digital images of the strips are saved and have the advantage of not fading in color, and thereby maintain their full diagnostic informational value over many years.

The BLOTrix Reader S1 – is equipped for all the strip and tray formats from various manufacturers. We cooperate with several of the most well-known manufacturers of diagnostic test strips.

BlotBoy 3D Mixer

The BlotBoy 3D mixer provides the perfect 3-dimensional motion for all blot related applications. The tilt, angle and speed have been optimally set for gentle, but thorough mixing in gel trays, boxes and other flat vessels.
