Helmed for BLOT automation
REPRODUCIBILITY AND ACCURACY AT A NEW LEVEL
Confirm your IFA screening in the same instrument using the Blot module.
NO SAMPLE PRE-DILUTION REQUIRED
Dilutions are prepared directly in the trays.
REPRODUCIBILITY ACROSS ALL STRIPS
The time management and the environment created inside the HELMED® Blot ensures a consistent incubation and washing time for all strips tested.
40 strips from up to 9 different tests can be run at the same time.
ROBUST ANALYSIS AND ACCURACY
The HELMED Blot communicates with the AESKU.SCAN software, supporting an automated analysis of the strips, avoiding person-to-person bias.
The AESKUBLOTS are optimized for the HELMED Blot, ensuring a better experience and the lowest „dead volume“ on the market.
Helmed for IFA automation
190 REASONS TO AUTOMATE YOUR WORKFLOW
4x4 FORMAT – MORE SLIDES AND TESTS
Up to 20 slides from 4 different tests with 4 different substrates can be processed in just one run.
SMALL SIZE – HIGH THROUGHPUT
Despite its small footprint, the HELMED is able to process up to 190 different samples in one single run or approximately 20 slides.
SCREENING AND TITRATION WITH JUST ONE WORKLIST
The HELMED allows dilution ratios from 1:1 to 1:10.240 in 192 available dilution positions. One step dilution ratios range from 1:1 to 1:160; greater dilutions are performed in two steps.
The HELMED supports slides from different manufacturers independently of different thicknesses, number of wells and formats.
FLEXIBLE PROTOCOL PROGRAMMING
The multi-step programmable software allows the user to define conjugate/counterstain or multi-step reagent addition immediately after a specific well is washed (not after the whole slide has been washed).
The total sample and reagent volume to be dispensed per well is automatically calculated. Then it is distributed on multiple points to provide optimal sample and reagent distribution. This is especially necessary for tissue sections and large format wells. The wash-by-cycle system avoids cross-contamination.
Helmed for ELISA automation
MULTIPLE OPTIONS FOR LOW TO MEDIUM THROUGHPUT
Confirm your IFA screening in the same instrument using the ELISA module.
NO PRE-DILUTION TUBES REQUIRED
Sample dilutions up to 1:101 are directly prepared on a microtiter plate (MTP). Higher dilutions should be performed outside the instrument.
INDIVIDUAL WELL TIME MANAGEMENT
The incubation time will always be the same for all wells. No plate drift effect since the clock starts counting individually and immediately after each well is processed.
ONE WORKLIST, TWO INSTRUMENTS
The HELMED is able to communicate with the most common external MTP readers. The worklist is imported by the reader, which exports the measured OD back to the ELISA software, for data compilation, allowing a paperless workflow and a safer data transfer.
