Product category: Other equipment for immunochemistry and immunology

BlueDot

BlueDot kits are composed of 24 nitrocellulose strips on which the antigens have been coated in a dot-shaped format. One strip allows the testing of one patient for many different autoantibodies in the same run. The test is based on a classical Enzyme ImmunoAssays (EIA).

In addition to the antigens, each strip possesses two built-in reactive controls :
- The first one, the Reaction Control (RC), controls the validity of the test : its coloration proves that the clinician has added the patient serum and that the test has functioned correctly.
- The second one, the Cut-Off Control (CO), allows the interpretation of the test : any color intensity equal to or below that of the cut-off is considered negative, any color intensity superior to that of the cut-off is considered positive.

The results can be interpretated by sight or a semi-quantification can be obtained thanks to the Dr DOT software.

The BlueDiver Dot are automated on the BlueDiver Instrument. The complete processing time lasts just 1 hour. The results can be interpretated by sight or a semi-quantification can be obtained thanks to the BlueScan scanner and the Dr DOT software (minimum version 3).

BlueDiver Quantrix

BlueDiver Quantrix kits are composed of 24 nitrocellulose strips on which the antigens have been coated in a microdot-shaped format. All the antigens and controls are coated in triplicate spotting to ensure the quality and the validity of the results. The test is based on a classical Enzyme ImmunoAssays (EIA).

Thanks to a 6 point built-in calibration curve including blank measurement, all the results obtained are fully quantitative. BlueDiver Quantrix strips are automated on the BlueDiver Instrument and all quantitative results are obtained with the Dr DOT software.

Its format and the number of autoantibodies tested per run makes BlueDiver Quantrix the ideal complement to ANA and Hep2 screening techniques. Moreover, a complete set of built-in controls safely validates the whole process of the test (from the sample loading, the conjugate specificity/reactivity and the substrate kinetics) and meets laboratory accreditation requirements.

BlueDiver Instrument

The BlueDiver Instrument is the result of an internal development to automate BlueDiver Dot, BlueDiver Quantrix and BlueDiver Combi kits.

The BlueDiver Instrument is a compact and innovative machine which processes the strips with ready-to-use reagents provided in individual cartridges.

This “no pump – no liquid handling” machine presents many advantages such as a time-effectiveness (results are obtained in only 1 hour), limited maintenance (no pumps/tubes to be serviced or replaced), space-effectiveness (BlueDiver Instrument is azs compact as a microwave oven)

Moreover the specific architecture of the BlueDiver Instrument and the standardized test procedures allow the testing of 24 different samples on 24 similar or completely different test strips. This fact combined with the tremendous reduction of processing time gives maximum flexibility to laboratory technicians.

The BlueDiver Instrument has been conceived to comply with the CE IVD recommendations and major laboratory accreditation requirements.

The BlueDiver Instrument is used in combination with the Dr DOT software.

About us

Company details

D-tek s.a. is a private Belgian biotechnology company created in 1995 in Mons (40 km from Brussels and less than 1h20 from Paris).

The company is located in 1.200 square meters facilities in the Scientific Park Initialis of Mons. The company is specialized in the development and manufacturing of diagnostic kits for human autoimmune diseases.

Autoimmune diseases are due to inappropriate immune response against the organism’s own antigens (autoantigens), leading to chronic inflammation, tissue destruction and/or dysfunction. Generally unknown by the public and perceived as uncommon, they represent nevertheless the third cause of clinical mortality in industrialized countries.

Doctors generally distinguish systemic and organ-specific autoimmune diseases, depending if they affect multiple organs or only one organ specifically. The etiology of autoimmune diseases is clearly multifactorial. Both intrinsic factors (e.g. genetics, hormones, age) and environmental factors (e.g. infections, diet, drugs, and environmental chemicals) may contribute to the induction, development and progression of autoimmune diseases.

According to the estimation of the World Health Organization, they affect up to 6 % of the global population. Scientists and doctors agree that more than 60 diseases have a proven or strongly suspected autoimmune cause. Moreover, there is epidemiological evidence of increasing prevalence of certain autoimmune diseases, which cannot be attributed to focus on or improvement of the diagnosis alone.

As the autoimmune diseases are generally incurable and require a lifelong treatment they have a strong impact on public health cost. Their accurate diagnosis has therefore become of major importance these last decades. All the diagnosis techniques available on the market are based on the ability to detect the presence of autoantibodies in the patient’s serum.

Thanks to its long experience in autoimmunity, its strong skills in Research and Development and its understanding of the customer’s needs, D-tek has developed an innovative range of diagnostic products. The know-how of D-tek has permitted the launching of more than 100 different kits on the market, many were a world première like the first kit for the detection of anti-Nucleosome (predictive marker of Lupus) antibody. Moreover, D-tek’s tremendous innovation capabilities have allowed the launching of new ranges : the BlueDiver Quantrix which are the first microarrays, quantitative and fully automated kits on nitrocellulose and the BlueDiver Combi which are the unique product that allows customization of the diagnostic test.

The impressive range of products, their quality and the commitment to the customer’s satisfaction explain why D-tek’s products are now sold worldwide through a network of experienced distributors.
