Assay Standardisation

08 Jun 2018 0 Comments 0 Trackbacks Jessica Harland

Clinical laboratory measurements can be used for disease diagnosis, to guide pharmaceutical therapy, monitor disease progression and assess risk of recurrence. As an integral part of this, test procedure standardisation is essential to produce verifiable results, referring to the ability of an assay methodology to produce results which are both repeatable and reproducible. Inconsistent test procedures can lead to inconsistent assessment of a patient and, in some situations, incorrect diagnosis or treatment.

A barrier which assay standardisation faces is the consequence of manual handling errors on test variability. Many of the issues with consistency can be considerably reduced with the removal or reduction of human error by manual handling using automated assay technology.

The ALDAS technology provides a complete platform to deliver simple, rapid, fully automated molecular diagnostics, that can easily be applied to a variety of application fields including immunogenetics, immunology, blood banking and microbiology. MCD has designed and developed the 3 elements of the system and can offer a tailored solution to meet your individual assay requirements.

The ALDAS instrument allows the complete automation of your assay by performing all hybridisation, pipetting and wash steps. The resulting reactivity pattern is visualised using colorimetric detection and an image captured by the on-board camera. The image is then transferred to our interpretation software for results analysis. PCR based assays can also be fully automated by the addition of a thermalcycler integrated into the instrument.
