Automatic sampling and injection system
The Ultra2 A1c combines the advantages of boronate affinity separation with the precision, convenience and automation of high-performance liquid chromatography. Boronate affinity chromatography is free from common interferences such as haemoglobin variants, non-glycation modifications and storage-related hemichromes. It requires no sample pretreatment to remove the labile component, since only stable (ketoamine-linked) GHb is retained by the boronate.
Compared to ion-exchange techniques, affinity separation is also less sensitive to quantitative errors caused by minor fluctuations in reagent pH and ionic strength. The Ultra2 A1c software is especially designed for GHb/HbA1c analysis. It controls the four basic system operation functions of sample identification, instrument operation, calculation of results and printing (and storing) complete reports with the availability of reprinting batch summary reports and chromatograms from computer storage.
- Small sample volume required: whole blood or packed red blood cells from any type blood tube
- Keyboard entry or barcode scanning of patient sample identification information
- Computer-controlled unattended operation
- Individual sample reports with MBG and area of peaks, %GHb, %HbA1c (NGSP), mMol HbA1c/mol Hb (IFCC) and eAG (estimated average glucose)
- Summary report of test results from each batch run
- Real-time display to monitor system operation
- Minimum readable division: area percent = 0.1%
- Sample capacity: 475 samples per batch using the 215 Liquid Handler
- Throughput rate: 2 minutes per injection
FDA clearance and CE marked.
Gilson 215 Liquid Handler
The 215 Liquid Handler is a large-bed liquid handler used for performing dilutions, aliquoting solutions, mixing, plate reformatting, reconstituting samples, and more. It accommodates more than 330 racks to hold virtually any type of sample vessel, and has a punch strength capable of piercing thick or thin septa and microplate mats.
Single-probe, “workhorse” liquid handler and autosampler delivers a robust performance for fast and accurate direct injection onto HPLC or LC/MS systems. Suitable for a wide variety of applications. Performs injection, fraction collection and re-injection of collected fractions on one platform. Flexible liquid handler and injector is engineered to improve throughput for drug discovery and drug metabolism laboratories. High-throughput capacity is ideal for parallel injection onto HPLC or LC/MS systems.
Gilson 152 UV/VIS Detector
The Gilson 152 UV/VIS Detector is a microprocessor-controlled absorbance detector that provides single wavelength detection. It is a compatible components of a Gilson modular HPLC system.
The 152 Detector must be controlled via external software since it does not have an integral front panel display. For information on how to control the 152 Detector, refer to the user’s guide for the controlling software.
