Elite InGenius®

Market Segment: , ,

Elite InGenius® is the first CE-IVD fully automated sample-to-result solution, integrating sample preparation, amplification and result analysis, validated with a quantitative transplant pathogen monitoring menu.

The Elite InGenius® is a fully automated Molecular Diagnostics system performing automatically the following tasks: nucleic acid extraction and purification from a large panel of biological specimens, amplification and detection of the nucleic acid extracted by RT-PCR and result analysis.

The ELITe InGenius is a highly flexible solution operating as a closed system in combination with the ELITe MGB® RT-PCR line to offer a unique CE-IVD solution for infectious disease testing AND operating as an open system, compatible with a large range of PCR chemistries.

This unique system can processed from 1 to 12 samples in parallel and independent tracks. It features a universal extraction process in prefilled unitary cartridge associated with multiple and independent PCR from one or several extracted samples enabling the laboratories to develop and custom testing panels according to their specific needs.

Several working modes are available: sample preparation only, RT-PCR amplification only, or sample preparation, amplification and result analysis for qualitative and quantitative applications.

The intuitive and clear graphic user interface piloted with a touch screen guide the user step by step during routine daily works and interfaced with the Laboratory Informatics System (LIS).
