Quidel Rapid Lateral Flow Assays

Quidel Rapid Lateral Flow Assays

Taking rapid testing to the next level
Immunoassays today are designed in many formats depending on the target analyte and the needs of the end user. They can also be used to detect target analytes in a wide range of sample types including serum, plasma, whole blood, urine, or swabs of nasal passages, throat or urogenital tracts.

Quidel offers a continuum of diagnostic immunoassays including fluorescent immunoassays that are placed in an analyser that automatically measures the fluorescent signals, interprets the data, and immediately displays the result on its screen. Quidel immunoassays accommodate the needs of differing healthcare settings from the physician office laboratory to hospital bedside, emergency departments and reference labs.

Quidel Sofia 2Sofia 2 Fluorescent Immunoassay Analyser

Sofia 2 is a small bench top analyser that uses advanced fluorescence detection with an ultraviolet LED energy source. Sofia 2 collects hundreds of data points on the test strip contained inside of a Sofia FIA Test Cassette. Sofia 2 uses proprietary algorithms to analyse the data, interpret the signals and determine the results automatically to give you an objective result you can rely on.

 

Sofia 2 offers an easy-to-use interface, customisable settings, flexible workflow, barcode technology and Virena® connectivity. Results are reported automatically on the screen and can be stored in Sofia 2, optionally printed on an external printer, or sent to Virena.

 

Sofia 2 has two modes that can be used depending on your workflow requirements.

 

 

 

Sofia 2 WALK AWAY mode may be most convenient for reading a single patient sample. In this mode, Advance Result Technology (ART) can provide results in as few as 3 minutes. The patient sample is dispensed into the Test Cassette and the Test Cassette is immediately placed in Sofia 2. Sofia 2 will automatically develop the Test Cassette for the required time period (pre-programmed for each test), scan the Test Cassette periodically, and display the test result.

 

Sofia 2 READ NOW mode may be most convenient for reading several patient samples. In this mode, the patient sample is dispensed into the Test Cassette. The user then manually times the development period outside of Sofia 2. This can be done on the counter or bench top using a timer.* Once the development time is complete, the Test Cassette is placed in Sofia 2 where it is immediately scanned and the test result is displayed within one (1) minute.

 

*Refer to the assay-specific Package Insert for the required development time.

Sofia has two modes that can be used depending on your workflow requirements.

 

 

Sofia WALK AWAY mode may be most convenient for reading a single patient sample. You can walk away during the development period. In this mode, the patient sample is dispensed into the Cassette and the Cassette is immediately placed in Sofia. Sofia will automatically develop the Cassette for the required time period (pre-programmed for each test), scan the Cassette, and display the test result.

 

Sofia READ NOW mode may be most convenient for reading several patient samples. In this mode, the patient sample is dispensed into the Cassette. The user then manually times the development period outside of Sofia.
