Blood Grouping Automation

HTZ supply a range of automated blood grouping systems designed for hospital blood banks and blood transfusion/donor centres. These systems incorporate well proven technology throughout and are in use in laboratories all over the world

All our blood grouping systems incorporate a high level of security of operation yet remain "open" to different reagents to ensure the laboratory retains maximum flexibility in choice of reagents thereby retaining full control over costs and quality.

Automated IFA & ELISA Systems

HTZ manufactures automated systems to perform both IFA and ELISA tests. These tests are performed routinely in hospital immunology departments for the detection and monitoring of autoimmune disease. These tests involve a number of labour intensive pipetting processes including: sample dilution, sample pipetting, washing of test wells, the addition of one or more reagents. Performing large numbers of these tests manually can be tedious and, more significantly, error prone.

The most commonly automated tests include those for ANA (anti-nuclear antibodies), ANCA (Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies), ENA (extractable nuclear antigens) Cardiolipin, and DNA. These tests are usually performed using reagent kits which are available from a variety of suppliers. The majority of these have already been succesfully automated on the Beeline including those from ImmunoConcepts, Inova, BioSystems, Euroimmun, Medipan, BioDiagnostics and many more.

The Beeline 220s Automated IFA & ELISA system solves this problem by providing cost effective automation for both tests and has now been installed in laboratories all around the world. It accommodates the majority of IFA test formats and configurations available and can be adapted with custom racks, layouts or software to enhance its flexibility further.

The Beeline 320 (72 sample capacity) and Beeline 420 (96 sample capacity) both offer similar capabilities to the 220 but include automated barcode reading of both patient samples and microscope slides. Processing data including the barcodes is recorded and can be exported to imaging systems such as Image Navigator® from ImmunoConcepts providing a complete "chain of custody" from sample to result.

The Beeline 520 sx , the latest model in the range, is designed for higher throughput laboratories. It has a sample capacity of up to 288. With an optional second probe the 520 offers twice the processing speed of the other models and is capable of processing much larger batches.

Robotic Sample Processors

HTZ offer a comprehensive range of XYZ robotic platforms, each of which can be adapted to automate a variety of liquid handling applications

The Beeline range offers flexible automated pipetting for a wide variety of liquid handling applications.
Different hardware configurations are available to suit the demands of different applications and some of the options include:

  Stainless steel, Teflon coated needles for sample pipetting and dilution 

  Disposable Tip (DT) probe for applications requiring zero carryover

  Peristaltic pump for bulk sterile liquid dispensing

  Barcode readers for positive ID of samples, controls, reagents etc

  Robotic tube gripper for moving tubes

  Uncapping module for removing and replacing caps on bottles

  Tube labelling module for applying barcodes to secondary tubes

  Integrated balance for automated weighing of tubes and liquids

 

The Beeline range includes applications specific models such as the Beeline 220 for IFA automation, the BeeGroup 300 for automated Blood Grouping, the Periflex tube and vial filling workstation.

SELECTA

Tube sorter and pipetting robot

 A flexible robotic tube sorter with automated liquid handling and weighing options capable of performing a wide range of cherry picking and rearraying tasks
SELECTA is available with options to perform all of the following tasks:

 

   Sample Dilution and Pipetting

   Tube Uncapping/Recapping

   Tube Identification

   Tube Weighing

   Cherry Picking

SELECTA is a unique instrument for the cost effective automation of tasks requiring tube identification, sorting, weighing. It also offers the option of integrated automated liquid handling allowing it to tackle tasks that would otherwise require more instruments or a much larger investment.

The instrument comprises a robotic proportional control gripper that accommodates a wide variety of tube sizes for moving tubes between racks, the barcode reading position(s) and the weighing station.

Tubes may be presented in a variety of different rack types but typically they are in 96 position SBS format blocks.

Identification of tube codes, either 2D or linear barcode, is achieved by means of the integral camera 2D scanner or laser barcode reader respectively.

Weighing of tubes is performed by the 4-figure balance integrated into the weigh station.

Liquid handling is performed by a single channel syringe drive option coupled with a metal needle probe capable of performing precision pipetting tasks such as sample transfer, reagent addition, serial dilution and compound dissolution.

SELECTA represents a unique combination of cost effective tube sorting and advanced automated liquid handling.
