Introducing the V8 Nexus!

A touch screen interface, user-defined, auto capillary conditioning, faster turnaround, integration of CE and zone data with the advanced reporting and tracking of the Myeloma Module and improved separation of protein are just a few of the big advances of this system.
The V8 Nexus features eight capillaries and six on-board reagent positions that enable full multi-assay functionality and high throughput. A superior sample handling system allows continuous loading of samples with auto-dilutions and auto-preparation of SPIFE sample trays for additional testing by gel electrophoresis.





Platinum 4V system software provides a comprehensive set of analytical tools and user-defined options for ease of operations. The V8 can also use QuickScan Touch densitometer software for editing, reviewing and reporting. Previous patient data from the QuickScan, such as IFE results, can be included on the capillary electrophoresis reports.

• Drive/control V8 functionality
• Advanced editing tools
• Statistical calculation and display
• Bi-directional communication with host network
• Multiple search parameters with overlay capacity
• Full audit trail accountability
• QC and validation using Levey-Jennings
