Abbott TDx FLx Immunology Analyzer
- Performs tests in three modes
- Batch-Pack Adapter for batch reagent packs
- 1 to 8 different assays with up to 20 samples
The Abbott TDx FLx® Immunology Analyzer continues be one of the best options in the dynamic field of therapeutic drug monitoring. The Abbott analyzer is designed to perform tests in three modes: random access, batch, and unit dose, and performs 1 to 8 different assays with up to 20 samples which can be done on a single carousel run. Assay testing is conducted in batch mode operation, enabled by the TDx FLx® Batch-Pack Adapter which is a platform that holds the batch reagent pack.
Operations on TDx FLx® analyzer are carried out using fluorescence polarization technology. The TDx FLx® system follows a competitive binding immunoassay methodology, and prints out calculations of drug or hormone concentrations (in unknown samples) in reportable units. Calculations are done using the stored calibration curve.
This Abbott TDx FLx® analyzer system also employs the use of radiative energy attenuation (REA®) technology to achieve seamless performance clinical chemistry assays. Endpoint nephelometry technology is also used to perform Turbo® Specific Protein assays.
The automated system of the Abbott TDx FLx® Immunology Analyzer can perform a variety of laboratory tests including therapeutic drug assays, toxicology/abused drugs, metabolic, hormones, clinical chemistries, specific proteins, fertility/pregnancy, and metabolic. The TDxFLx® analyzer has consistently provided laboratory technicians with enhanced efficiency when performing tests on endocrine function, hormones, toxicology, abused drugs, and immunosuppressants.
