Automated Analyzing – Western Blots in Immunodiagnostics
BioSciTec GmbH upgraded its latest medical device B4C to analyze Western Blots
(PresseBox) (Frankfurt/Main, )While competing with more and more modern methods for Health Care, the original Western Blot, which separates proteins by electrophoresis, still persists within the field of immunodiagnostics. It has already been reputed to be obsolete in Germany just as it was supposed to be in all other countries. However, Western Blot still represents a safe diagnostic methods for many labs.
A Western Blot is less artificial than a Line Blot hence working closer to the native pathogen. Thus lots of labs still focus on the approved system. Automated analyzing of native Blots indeed has always been a challenge to both soft- and hardware indeed.
BioSciTec GmbH, leading in the field of strip analysis, upgraded its latest medical device to analyze Western Blots.
All-round-talent B4C - our most recent strip reading product - does not analyze Rapid Tests, Line Panels and loose Line Strips only, but additionally offers reading native Western Blot strips now.
Re-engineered algorithms and specific profiling for Blots represent a solid base for precisely analyzing mostly heterogeneous & diffuse Blot bands.
Furthermore, the new Blot feature incorporates all necessary tools for detailed revising and post processing. A 2D bar code technology provides useful and safe automation that supports managing the kit-specific controls. While implementing these functions, the focus lay on usability and software ergonomics. Several proven functions derive from the previous software version (BLOTrix 3.4) in order to assemble a reliable system upon best practice.
By integrating the ability to analyze native Western Blots, the system meets the needs of diagnostic manufacturers and labs once more.
For years BioSciTec GmbH has been gathering experience and know-how on the analysis of Line Blots, Line Panels, Lateral Flow Assays and Western Blots.
This is what defines the analyzing system: performance, precision and usability – all you can read.
