Quadriga BeFree System
Customized for blood banks
The Quadriga BeFree® System is an ideal solution for blood donor screening and very high volume infectious disease diagnostics (IDD). Its menu of proven Enzygnost® assays in microtiter plate (MTP) format covers HIV, hepatitis, and others. It is built by the seamless integration of up to two BEP® III Systems and 1 sample processor. In combination, the Quadriga BeFree and the Enzygnost assays, provide workstation consolidation for IDD laboratories.
The Quadriga BeFree System provides a front end solution that automatically performs dispensing of samples from primary tubes via the sample processor component, with an integrated plate transport to the BEP III System. It provides high throughput with a high level of safety and highest quality standards in results.
Various configurations make the Quadriga BeFree System extremely flexible for the use in labs with different volume needs. As a workstation consolidation solution, the Quadriga BeFree System offers the possibility to run MTP based ELISA on one platform fulfilling required safety and GMP/GLP (good manufacturing practice/good laboratory practice) standards.
