CAPILLARYS 3 TERA

CAPILLARYS 3, the Capillarys that reinvents CAPILLARYS

CAPILLARYS 3 is much more than a new instrument. It is a unique and exclusive automation program, designed to address the current and future needs of all laboratories.

CAPILLARYS 3 TERA, offers the enhanced throughput of a 12 capillaries system, lateral access for a tube loader or a workcell configuration, and a platform to process dry blood spot assays.

Several CAPILLARYS 3 TERA configurations are offered.

The stand alone instrument can be further upgraded with:

  • A high capacity tubes loader (up to 500 tubes).
  • A workcell configuration, with up to 3 instruments. CAPILLARYS 3 TERA MC is able to process either very high volumes of the same test, or batches of different tests, providing full walk-away flexibility.
  • Another option of CAPILLARYS 3 TERA is the analytical track compatibility, with CAPILLARYS 3 TERA TLA.

The CAPILLARYS 3 program offers a broad assay menu: Proteins*, Immunotyping* and HbA1c venous blood*.

Coming soon: HbA1c capillary blood, Hemoglobin whole blood, Hemoglobin Neonatal Guthrie and CDT IFCC. 

In the future: Hemoglobin Neonatal cord blood, Hemoglobin Adult Guthrie, Protein HR, Urine and Urine IT.

The CAPILLARYS 3 program was developed to fulfill all laboratories’ requirements in total confidence in a fast-changing environment.
