Automation of complement
The Svar Life Science complement test system consists of functional assessments of all three pathways in a simple and accurate ELISA format. Assessment of three pathways (classical, alternative and lectin) can be carried out with separate ELISA kits or in a combined kit.
Reasons for this automation are:
- decreased hands-on-time,
- increased reliability and reproducibility,
- direct processing of information to the LIS system,
- cost savings
In 2012, an automation and validation study of Complement ELISA tests on the DS2 Dynex instrument was performed at the General Clinical Laboratory of the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
The validation shows that the ELISA tests on the DS2 meet the demands regarding reproducibility and agreement with other tests and linearity. The tests are now run at routinebase, after the clinicians were informed about the changed reference values.
