The VIDAS® immunoassay testing system uses a single-dose, ready-to-use reagent strip system
The SPR® (Solid Phase Receptacle) is coated with antigens or antibodies.
The Strip contains all the reagents required for the reaction.
The SPR acts as a pipetting and reagent transfer device. At each stage of the reaction, it aspirates the reagents in and out. This original concept prevents any inter-reagent or inter-sample contamination during immunoassay tests. In addition, the absence of tubing, syringes and needles reduces system maintenance to a minimum. (show picture)
The VIDAS system uses the ELFA assay principle, combining the ELISA test method with a final fluorescent reading. This technology ensures excellent result sensitivity and specificity.

Features of VIDAS® 30
VIDAS is an automated, multiparametric immunoassay testing system. This uniquely designed testing device stores the calibration in the analyzer's memory, thus optimizing the cost-per-patient result. Plus, with its ready-to-use reagents, minimum maintenance, ease of use and uni/bi-directional interface, labor cost is also optimized. Automation and kinetic assay reactions yield rapid turnaround time.
The VIDAS® system allows for a flexible work routine with:
a sectioned architecture (5 sections of 6 tests each) * an add-on modular system * more efficient workflow * batch testing (up to 100 tests/2 hr.) * single sample testing * STAT capability * multiparametric testing * All VIDAS assays are single-dose format assays * Everything included in one kit * No reagent preparation – just load and go
Easy to Use: * Always ready with no startup and minimal maintenance * Ready-to-use reagents – just load and go
Cost Effective: * Single test reaction strip * Batch or multiple assay testing
Reliable: * Reliable system with MTBF* > 1,000 days *Mean Time Between Failure
miniVIDAS® is a compact version of the VIDAS® system with a built-in computer, keyboard and printer. Two independent sections each accept six tests and can process up to 12 samples simultaneously.
These automated immunoassay tests are reliable and economic. It uses ELFA (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay) technology, has no carryover risks, requires a one-point recalibration once every 14 or 28 days depending on the assay and optimizes the cost per patient for batch or single sample testing. In addition, the menu of available assays is constantly growing.
Productivity: * Optimized cost per patient result * Uniquely designed testing device * Calibration stored in the analyzer's memory * Optimization of labor * Ready-to-use reagents * Minimum maintenance * Ease of use * Uni- or bidirectional interface to LIS * Rapid Results * Kinetic reactions * Automated * Efficient workflow
Flexibility: * Flexible work routine * "Sectioned" architecture – 5 sections, 6 tests each (30 total available) * "Add-on" modular system * Batch or single testing * STAT testing * Multiparametric testing * Load and Go
Quality: * Automation * No carryover contamination * Fluorescence reading * Ready-to-use, bar-code-labeled reagents * On-board QC program
