ASSIST

Gel traceability Step 1:  the pipetting station for the preparation of HYDRAGEL

ASSIST is the first step of the agarose gel traceability, completing the automation of the HYDRASYS system. 

Designed to ensure full standardization for all pre-analytical steps, ASSIST directly pipettes from the primary tube. The instrument dilutes (standard or customized mode), and applies the samples on the Sebia disposable applicators.

For immunofixation, ASSIST dispenses automatically the antisera on the Sebia’s dynamic mask. Traceability is provided by barcode management on primary tubes and sample applicators for all types of HYDRAGEL tests.
