AIX 1000

FULLY AUTOMATED RPR SYPHILIS TESTING

The AIX1000 is the world’s first fully automated system for nontreponemal RPR Syphilis testing. Simply load your reagents and up to 192 samples, then walk away. The AIX automates the processing, analysis, reporting and archival of results for both RPR screens and titers.

US PATENT NO. 10,222,375

Process and Machine for Automated Agglutination Assays with Image Automated Evaluation

FULLY AUTOMATED.

The RPR test procedure and results interpretation are fully automated. Reduce variation associated with manual testing & interpretation.

COST EFFECTIVE & EFFICIENT.

Reduce the amount of labor overhead dedicated to RPR testing, freeing personnel to increase productivity across laboratory operations.

Improve the quality & consistency of your results.

PERFORMS SCREENS & TITERS.

Run flexible batch sizes of up to 192 samples in 90 minutes. The AIX1000 performs RPR screens and/or titers using automated protocols.

EASY ACCESS TO TEST RESULTS.

Images of each RPR test result are stored digitally and are retrievable on demand for review anytime.

Features

START THE RUN & WALK AWAY

Load sample tubes using the built-in bar code reader or intelligent racks. The AIX1000 provides full sample traceability from loading to result reporting and archiving. The AIX1000 performs the RPR test procedure for screens and titers, and automatically interprets results.

SOFTWARE

Run qualitative screens & semi-quantitative titers (1:2-1:256). The AIX1000 performs the RPR test procedure for screens and titers, and automatically interprets results using a proprietary pattern recognition algorithm.

DIGITAL RESULTS

An HD camera generates images of RPR test results that are stored digitally and are retrievable on demand.

ON-BOARD FEATURES

The AIX1000 employs a single, dual needle probe to aliquot Gold Standard Diagnostics’ RPR reagents in up to 4, 48 well microtiter plates, and an orbital shaker to perform the automated RPR test procedure. A built-in magnetic stir plate maintains carbon reagent suspension during the run.

INTUITIVE, USER FRIENDLY TOUCH INTERFACE

Use the touch-screen interface to analyze, archive and retrieve results.

COMPATIBLE WITH LABORATORY INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Upload and report results directly to your laboratory database without the need for manual data entry. Integrate results archiving and reporting into your laboratory information system.
