Capillary electrophoresis is a proven technology(1),(2),(3) for hemoglobin disorders screening and provides high quality results.
Sebia CAPILLARYS 3 DBS is the latest generation of instrument dedicated to newborn hemoglobin screening, offering a smooth workflow and excellent analytical features.
The CAPILLARYS 3 DBS instrument is an automated, multitasking capillary electrophoresis instrument using 12 capillaries for multiple simultaneous hands-free electrophoretic separations at high throughput.
The CAPILLARYS 3 DBS enables the analysis of samples from microplate wells and provides fully automated electrophoresis separation, from the dried blood spots on filter paper (Guthrie card) through to the final electrophoretic pattern: sample identification, sample dilution, sample incubation, capillary washing, sample injection into the capillaries, migration, detection, processing of the results, and transfer over the computer interface.
This instrument is an interesting alternative to commonly used technology such as IEF and HPLC for all the laboratories involved in newborn hemoglobin screening, bringing seamless sample traceability, high quality results, and high throughput while offering a reduced hands-on time.
