Personal Lab

Hit a home run for automated microELISA testing with your new Personal LAB

The new Personal LAB is an integration between our unique extensive expertise and information gathered from thousands of installations. The new Personal LAB is innovative both in hardware and software and extensive array of reagents.

The New Personal LAB is a compact desktop analyser, noiseless and reliable.
It is designed to simultaneously process two microplates with multiple assays per plate using Enzymatic Immune Analysis.

The new, easy to use interface enables you to program almost all the protocols of microELISA assays currently available on the market.

Sample Station

The new featured sample identification enables genuine positive sample identification of samples (PSID) via an integrated bar code facility.
This new feature, in combination with the new sample strip loading facility results the most reliable sampling, sample identification and matching test results.

The new PSID functionality makes your Personal LAB even more complete and will maintain its leading position for mid-sized automated microELISA instruments.

In addition to the sample strip loading, the samples can still be loaded via different racks that are available to satisfy the need of every user:

  • rack for 50 test tubes with diameter 16 mm or 12 mm
  • rack with 96 test tubes diameter 12 mm
  • rack with 78 test tubes diameter 14 mm

The test tubes specifications that are compatible with the Personal LAB:
height: 55 to 100 mm.
diameter: 12 to 16 mm.


Pipetting Station

The working platform has of one robotics arm operated by step motors and controlled by both optic and mechanic sensors.

The automatic tip change system and the self-cleaning of the metal needle, with a wash volume programmable by the user, guarantee the absence of interferences due to carry over.

The instrument is equipped with -PLS- pneumatic level sensor (patented) for the polymeric tip and a capacity sensor (for the metal needle). The polymeric tip is equipped with a clot detection system.

In the event insufficient volume of liquid, the instrument alerts the operator with both acoustic and optic alarms.

The Personal LAB performs automatic pre-dilution of samples, standards and controls.

Incubation Chambers

The plate housing is designed for simultaneous processing of two microplates.

The plate holders are able to perform the vertical shaking with intensity and period programmed by the operator.

During the incubation the plates are placed into two independent chambers, thermally isolated at the temperature programmed by the operator.

The reading station has a photometer that can be programmed by the operator for reading, with single, double or triple ray (vertical reading).
In the case of triple ray (over-range reading), the instrument automatically converts the absorbance values detected at the different wavelengths.

  • The filters usually provided: 405, 450, 492, 550 and 620 nm.
  • Optional filters: others in the range 400-700 nm, up to a maximum of 8 filters.

The loading area is easily accessible for easy and simple loading activity of reagents, samples and polymeric tips.

The reagents and samples rack are easily removable in order to quickly store the reagents in a refrigerator.

Washing Station

The washing station has a 16-channel wash head. Eight channels are dedicated to the wash solution dispensing and eight channels are dedicated to the aspiration.

Cycles, volume and number of washes are easily programmable by the operator and three wash buffers can be loaded on board at the same time.

    • Washing volume: programmable from 100 to 2000 ml.
    • Number of cycles: programmable from 1 to 9 cycles.
    • Soak time: programmable from 1 sec to 3 minutes.
    • Pressure: programmable.

Each protocol can be programmed by the operator with several washes different in terms of cycle, volume, soak time and pressure.
