Microplate Washing

Addcare‘s range of immunoassay workstations combine all functions required to process microplate based immunoassays on an efficient, convenient and fast platform. Sample- and reagent transfer are per- formed by the high precision pipetting system. An array of shaker-in- cubators carry the microplates, assure accurate reaction temperature and efficient mixing. A high performance 96-well microplate washer module provides fast and efficient washing. The measurement mo- dule selected to match your specific assay technology ELISA, CLIA or FIA, provides reliable raw data to be evaluated and the plate transfer arm moves the plate between the modules used for each individual processing step.

The system is complemented by ADCstation, a powerful PC-software providing an intuitive user interface to control all system functions, define and execute the desired processes, perform evaluation and provide access to results and process data.

Sample Pipetting

Air displacement technology and disposable tips

The pipetting modules in Addcare's assay processors utilize drip- proof air displacement pipetting with disposable tips. This technolo- gy eliminates any risk of cross contamination by carryover and pre- vents sample dilution with system liquid, both common in washable tip systems. Different sizes of disposable tips can be used to match the specific pipetting requirements.

Real time tip monitoring

During tip-loading, pipetting and tip-ejection the system conti- nuously monitors the presence and proper fixing of each tip. In case of a problem the software will automatically set necessary actions, like retry loading the tips to assure continuous operation or display the related warning and ask for user intervention if necessary.

Liquid handling process monitor

During aspiration the pipetting system automatically monitors three parameters vital for accurate pipetting and reliable assay processing. If a problem is identified the system provides an alarm and the ope- rator can eliminate the reason immediately.

Liquid level monitoring is used to detect the surface of the liquid to be pipetted, to assure identical conditions for aspiration and accurate pipetting across all channels. The pressure based detection system allows for the use of standard pipetting tips.

Clot monitoring, based on sophisticated analysis of the pressure profile for each individual channel during aspiration, is used to detect clogged tips. Tube volume monitoring uses the detected liquid level, the sample- or reagent-container geometry- and its position data to calculate the liquid volume available in the related vessel. If the available volume is not sufficient to continue the scheduled pro- cess, the system will provide a warning and ask for user intervention. All 8-, 4- and 2-channel systems provide the possibility to deactivate faulty channels if necessary. The system can then still be operated and continue the protocol with the remaining, intact channels until the problem can be eliminated. This feature prevents critical down time of the system while your lab is busy and gives you the chance to plan maintenance when appropriate.
