High-throughput immunoassay system

May 4, 2017Siemens Healthineers’ Advia Centaur XPT Immunoassay System offers a comprehensive infectious disease testing menu for laboratory diagnostics that enables lab managers to consolidate infectious disease testing on a single platform. The menu includes tests for HIV (with the Advia Centaur HIV Ag/Ab Combo assay to detect the HIV antigen and antibodies); syphilis; hepatitis A, B, and C (including HBsAgII); and other infectious diseases.

Designed for hospitals and reference laboratories that demand high throughput, the system can process up to 240 tests per hour and offers a portfolio of more than 70 assays. The Advia Centaur XPT system helps minimize hands-on operator time with automated maintenance and consolidates infectious disease testing, otherwise conducted on multiple instruments, for improved efficiency and better turnaround time. Further, with assay features such as “Hot Zone” integration to reduce the need for additional testing and system software features such as SMART algorithm to automate reflex testing, clinicians are able to receive results sooner while the lab achieves greater efficiency by reducing repeat testing.
