The RIDA qLine® autoBlot is a stand alone analyzer for the automated performance of up to 36 RIDA qLine® Allergy membranes in one run. All steps like the detection of the samples by a barcode reader, pipetting of all reagents, washing the membranes, scanning of the membranes and transfer of the picture to the appropriate evaluation software of R-Biopharm AG are operated discretely.
The autoBlot Processor is an instrument which supports 3 dimensional robotic movement on the X, Y and Z axes. It’s comprised of a built-in CCD scanner, a barcode reader and a pressure sensor. Also built in to the instrument is a bespoke tilting and orbital shaker mechanism for agitating the membranes used on the instrument. The unit as a whole is controlled via an integrated touch-screen which is running a bespoke software controller and graphical user interface. The combination of all these features result in the ability to completely automate the processing of R-Biopharm RIDA qLine® allergy membranes, starting from sample handling and ending with images of the membranes once processing has completed.
The instrument is designed to be partnered with third-party interpretation software used on a standalone computer which resides somewhere on the same network as the instrument. By creating work-lists and passing them along to the instrument, the software can track the progress of a work-list and finally interpret the results when the scanning has completed.
we have started to provide the documents for our products in an electronic format. These are the Instructions for Use (IFU), the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and the Certificate of Analysis (CoA).
