Compared to the previous generation, CAPILLARYS 3 TERA offers the enhanced throughput of a 12 capillary system and can be turned into a MC configuration, aggregating 1 to 3 CAPILLARYS 3 TERA to a tube loader (528 positions).

The CAPILLARYS 3 TERA offers a broad assay menu in myeloma, diabetes, hemoglobinopathies and chronic alcohol abuse.

The CAPILLARYS 3 TERA shares the same reagents and consumables as the other CAPILLARYS 3 instruments, allowing the lab to adopt the most relevant platforms, mixing CAPILLARYS 3 OCTA, TERA and TERA MC configurations to match exactly the needs of their organization.

Key benefits


CAPILLARYS 3 TERA instruments can evolve into a workcell configuration. Linked to Sebia’s MC loader, 1 to 3 CAPILLARYS 3 TERA will deliver a very high throughput for a single or multiple electrophoresis capillary techniques.

Smart reagent management

4 open positions for main reagents, temperature-controlled section for secondary reagent (antisera), automated reagent identification, change buffer without interrupting the testing.

Advanced piloting Software

Delivered with each Sebia’s instrument, the PHORESIS software allows laboratories to manage the instrument results providing a very flexible solution.

Up to
