Aerospray® TB Series 2

Market Segment: ,

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® TB Series 2

Aerospray® TB Series 2

The Aerospray TB series 2 automated slide stainer is a dual-purpose microprocessor-controlled slide staining and cell preparation system.


The Aerospray Process for TB Staining

The Aerospray TB Stainer stains microbial specimens that have been transferred onto microscope slides along with materials such as digested sputums, culture media, body fluids, or exudates. ELITechGroup TB reagents are tailored to give superb results in the Aerospray Stainer. 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.

HOW IT WORKS:

Aerospray technology: reagents applied from atomizing spray nozzles

Aerospray technology: reagents applied from atomizing spray nozzles

Reagents are applied from atomizing spray nozzles onto the slides. Staining is rapid and precise. Only fresh stain contacts specimens avoiding cross-contamination or contact with used reagents. With the addition of the Cytopro rotor, body fluids can be processed in the stainer, making it a dual purpose instrument in one convenient footprint.

SUPERIOR STAINING FLEXIBILITY:

Aerospray TB gives users the ability to adjust the exact amount of each reagent applied to each slide. Primary Stain, Decolorizer, Counterstain, Washes can be adjusted independently to tailor the staining to individual preferences and to various approaches.

CARBOL FUCHSIN OR FLUORESCENCE STAINING ON DEMAND:

Carbol-Fuchsin(ELITe ZN®) /Methylene Blue counterstain

Carbol-Fuchsin(ELITe ZN®) /Methylene Blue counterstain

With a few keystrokes and a change of reagents the TB stainer can beconfigured either for staining like Ziehl-Neelsen (ELITe ZN® technology) without the inconvenience of the dangerous fumes linked to the traditional heating phase, but also for auramine or auramine/rhodamine staining methods.


Dual-purpose Instrument

Rotor CarouselWith the optional Cytopro®rotor, the Aerospray Stainer becomes a superb cytocentrifuge with eight-slide capacity and programmability, at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a stand-alone cytocentrifuge.
It allows users to prepare samples evenly and uniformly on the microscope slide prior to staining, which is a significant advantage to increase the overall sensitivity of TB screening in patients with extra-pulmonary TB or with HIV co-infection.

 

 


Everything under control

Would you like to secure your settings with an administrator password? Do you want to be reminded to perform preventative maintenance or stain a QC slide? Just program the stainer as you like and the system will remind you. And don’t worry about reagents and waste – the stainer alerts you to expired shelf life, or critical reagent or waste levels.


More traceability

Scan SlideNeed to reinforce your QC management and ensure compliance with new lab requirements? The Aerospray TB series 2 memory stores critical information including: reagent data, specimen ID, user ID, and cycle operation history–all exportable via a USB port. The new barcode scanner streamlines data entry, while manual keyboard entry is still an option.


Economical

The Aerospray TB Stainer is exceptionally sparing when it comes to reagent consumption. Programmability significantly reduces the volume of reagents required for staining partial loads and thereby significantly lowers reagent cost.


Rapid performance

With a cycle time as short as 5minutes, the Aerospray Stainer can process more than 150 slides per hour (up to 400 with the optional 30-slide carousel). No more waiting for slides to dry–they’re ready to view when the staining cycle ends.


Easy to use

screen-stain_programs[1]Simply select the user-defined program and start the stain cycle. The stainer takes over from there, precisely controlling all phases of the stain cycle with virtually perfect reproducibility. Automated nozzle clean and purge after each stain cycle ensures performance without user intervention.
