AFIAS-1 (AFIAS-automated fluorescent immunoassay system) is an automatic immunoassay system that measures the concentration of a targeted analyte in a sample, using quantitative or semi-quantitative methods using blood, urine, and other samples. The AFIAS-1 reader is easy to carry and has a simple structure. Also, AFIAS-1 uses all-in-one cartridges which automates the entire procedures from sample preparation to test when user loads sample only.
Since AFIAS-1 uses a single channel, it is optimized for small and mid-sized hospitals (or clinics) testing up to 10 samples per hour. For some tests, such as TSH, CRP, PCT, and HbA1c, a quantitative test can be performed using a small sample (10uL or 50uL) of whole blood from a finger or heel using an applicable C-tip (capillary tip).
For connection to EHR / LIS / Middleware, AFIAS-1 is connected via Zafena POC-Workstation.
