Pioneering progress with Helena Biosciences
V8 sets new standards of excellence in Clinical Electrophoresis by revolutionizing usability and truly bringing automation to life. V8 is an integrated diagnostic system optimized for an extensive assay range for the preparation, separation and analysis of human proteins for a wide range of disease states including multiple myeloma, chronic disease states and hereditary blood disorders.

*Only serum protein and immunodisplacement assays available for sales in USA.

 

In Modern Laboratories Speed, Cost and Efficiency are Key
The development of capillary electrophoresis systems has brought a substantial improvement to clinical laboratories. Capillary electrophoresis platforms have the power to increase reproducibility of results by eliminating manual steps, improve separation of protein fractions and increase speed o analysis through complete automation.

V8 Integrated Technology Solution

XYZ arm picks up sample and diluent for stacking

Diluent is contained in the on-board reagent bay Separated protein fractions pass by the UV detector

1. The sample migrates by traveling into the buffer. The interface between the diluent and buffer lines up the proteins.

2. The aligned proteins are more effectively visualized by the detector resulting in higher peak efficiency, and greater clarity for clinicians.

V8 intergrated technology

With the V8, Helena scientists have pioneered a chemistry driven solution to overcome previous CE industry shortfalls, resulting in unsurpassed clinical resolution, sensitivity and accuracy.

Clinical Benefit

● Greater quantitative capability by optimized sensitivity and high resolution
● Increased sensitivity for low concentration samples
● Automated sample handling guarantees accuracy
● Fully automated linear detection range at a variety of fixed wavelengths.
