HELIA Automated Blot System

HELIA® is an automated analyzer for line immunoassays. The HELIA® system is able to perform all immunoblot processing steps, and due to an integrated camera module, it is able to read and report immunoblot results. The HELMED® processor architecture, and the HELIA® system unites proven lab automation with innovative immunoblot processing and reading technology. HELIA® was developed to simplify and automate immunoblot testing with a focus on standardization, minimal footprint and easy implementation.

NEW HELIA® DEVICE SOFTWARE

The new HELIA® software allows to run a complete ANA-17 Pro in only 3.5 hours.

The new software is safer and more reliable than the previous versions:

• Safer because we were able to improve the sample detection.

• More reliable because we could optimize the strip detection and the image evaluation of the strip blots at the same time.

The operation has also become much easier and more comfortable by com- bining the result processing in one menu item. Also the quantity of the results could be increased by the improvements mentioned above, especially since we have extended the portfolio of strip tests by food intolerance and aller- gies.

Maintenance and repairs have also been simplified for both the user and our technicians. A click on the button “Support Request File” creates a detailed support file from which our support team can obtain all necessary informa- tion and thus provide fast and adequate help.
