Reader System for Lateral Flow Assays (LFA) The opTrilyzer by the company opTricon is a universal mobile analysis device for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of lateral flow assays, immunological rapid tests for point-of-care diagnostics. The tests can originate in multiple fields of application, such as cancer and heart disease diagnostics or drug screening.
With the universal mobile reader system opTrilyzer®Med, opTricon offers different options for application in medical deployment:
Universal Configurability As a universal device platform, the opTrilyzer can be adapted to all common LFA test formats based upon color change. Close cooperation with test manufacturers is desirable in order to allow for an optimal and individual configuration of the device for the corresponding test.
Exact Determination of Results The core of the device is a high-resolution 2-dimensional CCD sensor in the camera, as well as an internal microcontroller for direct image analysis. The unique analysis software internal to the device calculates the exact value of the concentration on the basis of a 3-dimensional volume model of the recorded image. Inhomogeneities of the test strip are recognized and compensated for.
User-Friendly Test Implementation Algorithms specially integrated in the software prevent faulty measurements or the display of incorrect results. The measurement, which is completely independent of external calculation technology, can be conducted quickly by means of the intuitive, multi-lingual user interface. Results are clearly shown on a 4.3 inch color display.
Unlimited Mobility The device itself can be used without a PC and unites all necessary functions for conducting the test. The entry and saving of patient data, test implementation, and the management of results is possible within the device, as is the transfer of this data by means of a USB connection to an external PC or printer. An internal power supply by means of a battery allows for the device to run up to 8 hours.
The company opTricon, headquartered in Berlin, is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) developing and producing mobile analysis devices for the quantitative analysis of immunological rapid tests, so-called lateral flow assays (LFAs).
The opTrilyzer and cube, two universal device platforms developed for this, can be used with all usual test strip formats that require high-resolution measurement in the case of a low analyte concentration.
By means of diverse applications of the devices, the widest range of test strip technologies can be qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed.
The devices are individually configured for the corresponding LFA test in close cooperation with the customer.
opTricon is an innovative business, which is certified by the Technical Inspection Agency of the Rhineland (TÜV Rheinland) according to EN ISO 13485:2003 + AC:2009 as well as EN ISO 9001:2008.
