About MINICAP FLEX-PIERCING

The MINICAP FLEX-PIERCING instrument offers flexibility for small size laboratories. The fully automated instrument meets the needs of the laboratory while providing clear-cut and precise separations utilizing capillary electrophoresis technology. This multi-parameter, compact, automated capillary electrophoresis instrument offers a comprehensive menu on serum and whole blood for Protein, Immunotyping, HbA1c, Hemoglobin and CDT (Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin) testing.

For whole blood testing, the capped tubes are gently inverted to ensure adequate mixing of the samples providing accurate results. The instrument provides complete walk-away automation reducing overall labor requirements.
