Automated infection serology on the Alegria® instrument.

Automated infection serology on the Alegria® instrument.

Mainz, 14/12/2010 – ORGENTEC Diagnostika has successfully entered the field of infectious disease diagnostics. The first ELISA test systems for Alegria® were presented at Medica 2010, the first test kits will be delivered in early 2011.

The ORGENTEC serological tests for infectious diseases were developed specifically for Alegria®, ORGENTEC Diagnostika’s random-access analyser. The new test systems can be used to rapidly, automatically, and economically test individual patient samples for specific pathogens, or to test up to 30 samples in a single instrument run.

ORGENTEC Diagnostika is now offering ELISA test systems for the fully automated laboratory diagnosis of infections with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and measles, as well as for the laboratory diagnostic detection of mumps virus. Assays for the fully automated diagnosis of herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2), as well as ORGENTEC test systems for the diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis and Chlamydophila (Chlamydia) pneumoniae infections will follow in 2011. In addition, numerous other test systems for the laboratory diagnosis of bacterial and viral infections are currently under development, many at an advanced stage.

When using Alegria® test strips, the operator is completely free in the selection of samples and can freely combine the necessary analyses for autoimmune diagnostics or serological tests for infection. This flexibility makes the Alegria® analyzer and its test systems particularly attractive for laboratories with moderate or low numbers of samples or for the acute diagnosis of autoimmune or infectious diseases.

Every Alegria® test strip contains a complete set of reagents for testing the patient sample. Individual barcodes on the test kits contain all of the necessary information about the test itself, its analysis, and evaluation of the ELISA. Sample preparation, preparation of the test strip, and instrument preparation for the sample run are completely unnecessary. – www.orgentec.com

ORGENTEC Diagnostika, based in Mainz, Germany, is a world-leader in the development and marketing of test systems for autoimmune diagnostics and serological tests for infectious diseases. ORGENTEC has developed numerous highly specific ELISA test systems and blot and immunofluorescence tests, as well as the Alegria® random-access analyzer and the rheumachec® rapid test. – www.orgentec.com
