Personal LAB

The economic space miracle for small and medium-sized laboratories

  • Compact tabletop (65 x 61 x 66 cm)
  • Capacity of 2 microtiter plates
  • Double pipettes technique (tips and needle)
  • Pipetting movements on samples and reagents
  • Precise determination of up to 172 results for Total-IgE and spec. IgE in one test run
  • Flexible user interface
  • Control via external Windows PC
With the Personal LAB, you get fast and accurate results for Total-IgE and specific-lgE in one test run. Because the compact fully automatic machine fits into the smallest space and does not burden your budget with unnecessary laboratory technology, this is ideal for small and medium-sized laboratories. With the Personal LAB the suspicion of an allergy in a patient can be confirmed or excluded quickly, accurately and cost-effectively. With 172 total and specific-lgE determinations per test run and individual patient printouts, a highly efficient device system is available. The most essential of allergy treatment is a quick and accurate diagnosis. This diagnosis also includes Total-lgE and specific-lgE determination. However, the laboratory technology required for this is usually a lot of space and a lot of investment. The Personal LAB delivers uncompromising maximum performance in a confined space without unnecessarily burdening your budget.

Reagents

In the Personal LAB, all bottles (reagents – standards – controls) fit in dedicated and multifunctional racks. Different reagent-/standard-racks can be loaded on the machine. Reagent bottles up to 60 ml can be used. The rack system is designed to combine more than one test per reagent cup to ensure maximum flexibility in your daily testing routine. The loading area is easily accessible for easy and simple loading of reagents, samples and polymer tips. Reagent and sample racks are easily removable for quick storage in the refrigerator.
Multiple reagents can be loaded in standard matching bowls.

Samples

The sample identification allows true positive sample identification of samples (PSID) via an integrated barcode reader. This new feature in combination with the new sample strip loader results in the most reliable sampling, sample identification and consistency test results. The new PSID functionality makes your Personal LAB even more complete and maintains its leading position for mid-sized automated micro-ELISA instruments.

Test tubes with the following dimensions are compatible with the Personal LAB:
  • Height: 55 to 75 mm.
  • Diameter: 12 to 13.5 mm.

Dosing and diluting

The Personal LAB has a robotic arm operated by stepper motors and controlled by optical and mechanical sensors. It is equipped with 2 dosing systems, which allow to work independently and to allow a highly efficient pipetting. The two independent arms can use the tip of 1000 μl to dispense the reagents in multi-dispensing mode and 200 μl to deliver the samples, standards and controls.
The device is equipped with a pneumatic level sensor -PLS- (patented) for the polymer tip. The polymer tip is equipped with a clot detection system. If the amount of fluid is insufficient, the device warns the operator both acoustically and visually. The Personal LAB performs automatic pre-dilution of samples, standards and controls. Up to 192 pre-dilutions can be carried out per run.

Incubate and mixing

The plate case is designed for the simultaneous processing of two microtiter plates. Each microtiter plate can be programmed and edited completely individually. In addition, a single microtiter plate can be run.
The plate holders can perform linear shaking with a programmable intensity and period. During incubation, the plates are placed in two independent chambers, which are thermally insulated at the temperature programmed by the operator.

Washing

The washing station has an 8-channel wash head with two parallel needles each, suitable for washing both ‘U’ and flat bottom wells. Cycles, volume and number of washes can be easily programmed by the operator and three wash buffers can be loaded on board at the same time.

Washing volume: programmable from 100 to 2000 ml
Number of cycles: programmable from 1 to 9 cycles
Soaking time: programmable from 1 second to 3 minutes
Pressure: programmable

Washing station Personal LAB

Each protocol can be programmed by the operator with multiple washes that differ in cycle, volume, holding time, and pressure.

Reading

The reading station has a photometer that can be programmed by the operator to read with a single, double or triple beam (vertical measurement). With a triple beam (over-range measurement), the instrument automatically converts the absorbance values measured at the different wavelengths.

Provided filters: 405, 450, 492, 550 and 620 nm
Optional filters: Other in the range 400-700 nm, up to 8 filters

Simple device maintenance

The Perosnal LAB has minimal downtime to maximize the efficiency of your lab:
Preparation and follow-up of working hours: 5 minutes per day / no warm-up phase required
Self-diagnostic and alarm procedures are an essential part of Personal LAB.

Maintenance procedures:

daily
Cleaning at the end of the run – fully automatic.
weekly
General cleaning of the workspace of liquids.
Empty all tanks to remove residual buffers. Rinse with DI water.
monthly
Wipe the workspace, baskets and waste bin.
Check tanks and visible hoses
