RADIAL IMMUNODIFFUSION REGISTRATOR RID 01

Radial immunodiffusion registrator RID -01 will ensure:

•  highly sensitive detection of immunoprecipitation rings in Petri dishes;

•  automatic calculations of protein concentration by the method of radial immunodiffusion in gel.

The instrument is designed for clinical diagnostics laboratories of health-protection institutions.

The instrument comprises a special optical module for taking photos of Petri dishes and special software. Patented scheme of optical detection provides highly contrast images of the radial immunodiffusuion results.

Immunoactive protein concentration is measured by using a special program code for image processing and analysis.

 

 

Peculiar features

•  High image contrast without using special dyes.

•  Automatic estimation of immunoglobulin concentrations.

•  Possibility of using Petru dishes of two diameters, 90 and 60 mm.

•  Friendly software, up-to-date algorithm of image analysis, archiving of the analysis results.

Specially developed program code IMMUNE controls the photography optical module, inputs and processes electronic photos (automatically determines the immunoprecipitation ring positions and sizes), automatically saves the data on concentrations of the protein under study in a special data base, and controls the file archive. In case the image contrast ratio is unsatisfactory or there are defects in the gel, interactive mode of operation is possible.
