BLOTrix Reader R2 and C1: The new standards for the evaluation of rapid test strips and cassettes.

BioSciTec GmbH at the Medica 2012, Hall 3, booth G74

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt/Main, ) The new BLOTrix readers R2 and C1 from the company BioSciTec now also provide quantifiable results from rapid test strips and cassettes. With the help of optimised calibration techniques the systems provide standardisable measurement data from bands and spots. In close cooperation with the manufacturers of rapid tests we have developed a workstation R2 with integrated PC, and a compact reader C1 with very space-saving dimensions.

The systems are easy to operate by the users in the laboratory and allow the evaluation of all known rapid tests. For the laboratory this means that drug, infection, DNA and allergy tests from various manufacturers can be digitised with only one device. Due to the high demand and consistent product optimisation we are for the first time able to offer the C1-Reader together with a favourably priced evaluation system for small and medium-size laboratories starting from below 1,000 Euros.

The B4C, the third generation of the BLOTrix software, supports the work with the new readers. The Intelligent Shape Detection Technology (ISD) allows the user to insert the test into the reading device in any position. The ISD detects the shape and thereby automatically determines the position of the tests. In conjunction with a barcode on the test cassette the test type is also automatically determined. For the user this means maximum reliability and efficiency during the evaluation.

Important characteristics of the BLOTrix Reader R2 Workstation
- Reading system and assessment device in one unit.
- Pre-installed and configured B4C software
- Network-compatible for connection to laboratory information management systems (LIMS)
- Reading of several rapid tests in only one reading process (high throughput)
- Easy to clean with contamination through liquids

Important features of the BLOTrix Compact Reader C1
- Small, robust tabletop device with small dimensions (29 cm x 20 cm x 7.5 cm) for the assessment of one rapid test per scan.
- A drawer system for inserting all rapid tests (no adapters necessary)
- Easy to clean with contamination through liquids
- Connection to any computer with Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7)

BioSciTec GmbH

The company BioSciTec GmbH is actively involved in the development, production and marketing of imaging solutions in the area of biosciences. Our portfolio especially includes systems for semiautomatic assessment of test strips, colony counting and gel documentation.
The company BioSciTec Science Group was founded in 1997 by Dr. Robert Jäger in Marburg. During the first years the gel documentation software „GelScan“ and the microscopy tool „CellExplorer“ were developed and successfully marketed. After the renaming to BioSciTec GmbH and relocation to Frankfurt at the end of 2001, the field of laboratory diagnostics was developed as a new market segment with the development of the „BLOTrix“ software for the assessment of infection test strips.
Since the middle of the first decade of the 2000s the development and manufacture of optical reading devices became as equally important as the production of software. With the joining of Felix Dirla as second owner-manager the „BLOTrix“ system became CE labelled and the internationalisation of the company was developed.
Today, automated image analysis in the field of laboratory diagnostics is unimaginable without the company BioSciTec GmbH as a competent contact partner. We now cooperate with the worldwide leading test strip manufacturers and our systems for the assessment of diagnostic test strips reached a leading market position in the year 2007. Apart from the standard products we offer our growing customer base further specialised solutions, which are implemented as OEM software, e.g. in products for colony counting and laser micro-dissection.
We thereby work in an interdisciplinary team, which equally speaks the language of the biosciences, as well as information science and mathematics. Together with our professional project management this guarantees on-schedule implementation of customer requirements.
