The EVOLIS™ System is a self-contained microplate processor for automated, microplate-based EIA testing. Offering a high degree of analytical performance, the system is dedicated to smooth and safe handling of the materials encountered in busy, high-volume environments such as central hospital, public health, and reference laboratories. The complete EVOLIS Microplate System includes the analyzer, PC, monitor, and printer.
Designed for low- to high-volume testing (8,000 to 65,000 tests per year) at the highest level of safety, EVOLIS is fully automated for walkaway operation. Process four microplates (U-bottom or flat bottom) at a time, with up to four assays per plate. The system allows continuous loading of samples, up to 180 primary tubes at a time, and continuous loading of reagents and microplates (up to seven at a time) for maximum flexibility. Sample racks can accommodate 11–16 mm diameter tubes and reagent racks are designed to hold various tube sizes. Other features include dilution capacity for 288 samples, four independent temperature-controlled incubators, four ambient light-protected incubators, and three different wash buffers.
With comprehensive, multitasking software and full uni-/bidirectional functionality, multiple networked EVOLIS™ Systems have the ability to centralize results management with one connection to the laboratory information system (LIS).
EVOLIS™ assures the highest level of laboratory safety with positive identification of samples, reagents, and microplates, disposable tips with clot detection for reagents and samples, and colorimetric verification of sample and reagent additions. The system offers automatic password protection and complete traceability. Process control is built in and includes full log documentation.
