Aerospray® TB Series 2

Bringing the ground-breaking value of Aerospray® technology to TB staining.

“Delivering textbook quality staining with trouble-free operation.”

The new Series 2 stainers fulfills Today’s needs for Laboratories, with an easy and intuitive 21st century interface.

The Aerospray TB automated slide stainer will stain acid-fast bacteria (AFB) using either carbol fuchsin or fluorescence reagents. The Aerospray TB stainer provides a wide range of staining settings with many possible variables, allowing you to adjust staining as you like for different types of specimens. Only fresh reagents are applied to the slides so there is no chance of slide-to-slide cross-contamination. The reagent consumption is very low, throughput is high using either the 12- or 30-slide slide carousel, and slides are dry and ready for the microscope in five minutes giving superior results.

With the addition of the optional Cytopro® Cytocentrifuge Rotor, the Aerospray TB is also able to deposit cells onto microscope slides.

Aerospray® Gram Series 2

Automated Gram staining system that provides rapid, standardized results for all types of specimens.

“Delivering textbook quality staining with trouble-free operation”

The new Series 2 stainers fulfills Today’s needs for Laboratories, with an easy and intuitive 21st century interface.

Microscope slides smeared with samples containing microorganisms are stained to differentiate between Gram positive and negative microorganisms.

Only fresh reagents are applied to the slides so there is no chance of slide-to-slide cross-contamination. The reagent consumption is very low and throughput is high using either a 12- or 30- slide carousel. The slides are dry and ready for the microscope in minutes, giving superior results.
And with the addition of the optional Cytopro® Cytocentrifuge Rotor, the Gram is also able to deposit cells onto microscope slides.

ASO-BAR

Titration test of anti-streptolysin O antibodies (ASLO) for the serodiagnosis of group A streptococcus.
The ASO-BAR kit used in association with the COMPLEMENT ASO-BAR kit enables the semi-quantitative detection of anti-streptolysin O antibodies (ASO) from human serum.

The quantitative determination of anti-streptolysin O antibodies in patient serum, allows the confirmation of an active or recent streptococcal A infection. The ASO-BAR test is important in the management of patients with acute articular rheumatism characterized by elevated ASO levels.

  • Convenient: only one incubation step (20 min at 37°C), no instrument required
  • Cost-effective, routine laboratory test
  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Simple colorimetric reaction, without expert interpretation

Finally, our kit meets all safety requirements with 2 positive/negative controls and a new Control serum standard at 600U/mL.
