HELIOS is a revolutionary system which automatically carries out the complete pipetting and image capturing of IFA (immune fluorescence) tests.
It is the first and only system which takes over this process completely from beginning till the end. Compared with the manual procedure, HELIOS counts an absolute proof control to its signs beside an uncomplicated use and a maximum saving of time.
HELIOS HARDWARE HIGHLIGHTS
HELIOS SOFTWARE HIGHLIGHTS
IFA Processing and Image Capturing
The HELIOS processor is capable of performing all IFA processing and reading automatically.
The HELIOS uses the HELMED IFA Software, a well-established and robust software. Here you can program standard IFA test kits regardless of their manufacturer. Non-AESKU slides will be processed without reading.
This module starts automatically after slide processing is complete or can be used independently from other modules. The amount and position of images per well is user configurable for all AESKUSLIDES tests, prior to reading. A Pre-Classification suggestion ( + or - ) is performed for each image for AESKUSLIDES ANA HEp2 and ANCA.
All IFA analysis data can be loaded and evaluated well by well. The evaluation process is complemented by the AESKU pattern library. The option “show all negatives” presents all pre-classified negative results helping to save time by automatically creating the report with a push of a button. Further more with the option “sample overview” all results related to one sample can be compared site by site. Activating the pattern recognition tools give the Helios the ability to autonomously provide a suggestion of the most probable IFA patterns for Hep-2, ANCA and nDNA.
Estimated Endpoint Titer
In addition, an End Point Titer determination from one serum dilution can be performed at a glance.
This module is used to define the pre-classification suggestion criteria or user-administration.
The LIS Module sends all classified results to the LIS. ASTM standard connection configuration is done via user friendly entry mask.
