The new QuickScan Touch Plus densitometer provides fast and accurate imaging and quantitation of agarose gels as well as providing advanced data management tools for ease in reporting. QuickScan Touch Plus includes a more powerful Windows 10-based CPU and a new SQL database format to handle data from multiple Helena systems, including gel and capillary electrophoresis, for synoptic reporting of protein and IFE/ID results. Data from competitive systems can also be imported when switching to Helena. An optional SQL-based server for QuickScan Touch Plus expands the capacity of the system to handle the needs of even the largest medical centers.
Version two of our signature Myeloma Myeloma has software (optional) leverages the power of the QuickScan Touch Plus SQL database to unify each patient’s current and historic electrophoresis and supportive data into a single portal for fast and efficient interpreting, tracking and reviewing results.
High Def Touch Screen -Sharper patterns and adjustable contrast and brightness enhance visualization of small bands. The touch screen makes for easy menu navigation, scanning and editing.
New Reverse Image - Invert the background of IFE images onscreen to create a “negative” view to enhance visualization and aid in interpretation. View simultaneously with positive image system.
Easy M-Spikes -Place cursor in the middle of the M-spike and the system auto delimits on either side. This provides greater consistency between users. Users can adjust marks.
User Access - Set access for each user’s ability to edit patient info or scans, import or export, print, change setup or work list settings, or change calibration. User IDs are stored with the scan to identify who scanned, who reviewed, who edited, whether or not rescanned, and who rescanned.
Auto Pairing - Auto pair previous results for a patient for a specified test and date range and overlay up to two previous scans on patient's current results.
Positive ID - Barcoded gels allow positive ID from patient tube to final results. Using the Electrophoresis Sample Handler, QuickScan Touch can download worklists created from barcoded samples. Patient data can also be imported from LIS.
Massive Data Storage -Store all the demographics, tests, comments and customizable worklists you want. The only limitation is the size of the storage drive. The number of characters in labels or fields is essentially unlimited.
User-Defined Reports and Worklists -Reports and worklists are completely customizable. Create a single-page report that includes one patient’s SPE and IFE with interpretation, or print up to 100-scan profile of the patient’s entire history - easily.
Customized Interpretive Analysis -Build your own decision limits and interpretive comments library, making reporting results a snap. Comments can be automatically added or coded for quick retrieval. Text can be easily amended.
Network Capability - Patterns can be reviewed and edited remotely over the LAN.
Quality Control - Touch the QC icon to set the QuickScan Touch in motion to scan a linearity step tablet and neutral density control. Levy-Jennings plots are also available for easy evaluation of QC data.
