VIDAS instruments are multiparametric immunoassay systems designed to help provide the most accurate laboratory results.
With more than 3,000 food laboratories who have chosen VIDAS solutions for their routine analyses, bioMérieux is the worldwide leader in automated solutions for pathogen screening.
MINI VIDAS is a compact version of the VIDAS® system with a built-in computer, keyboard, and printer. Two independent sections each accept six tests and can process up to 12 samples simultaneously.
This automated immunoassay system is reliable and economical. It uses ELFA (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay) Phage and immuno concentration technology, has no carryover risks, requires a one-point recalibration once every 14 or 28 days depending on the assay and optimizes the cost per sample for batch or single sample testing. In addition, the menu of available assays is constantly evolving.
VIDAS system allows for a flexible work routine with:
Ease of Use
The VIDAS test system uses a single-dose, ready-to-use reagent strip system
The SPR acts as a pipetting and reagent transfer device. At each stage of the reaction, it aspirates the reagents in and out. This original concept prevents any inter-reagent or inter-sample contamination. In addition, the absence of tubing, syringes and needles reduces system maintenance to a minimum.
The VIDAS system uses the ELFA assay principle, combining the ELISA test method with a final fluorescent reading. This technology ensures excellent result sensitivity and specificity.
For Personal Care Testing
For Food Quality Control
The VIDAS system is a multiparametric immunoassay instrument that helps veterinary laboratories to provide better care and analyze animal samples with the highest level of accuracy.
Providing the most reliable results in a short amount of time, the VIDAS system helps your veterinary laboratory save time and resources by eliminating unnecessary diagnostic tests. This allows your lab to identify and treat animal diseases with precision and efficiency.
Our range of tests for veterinary applications also include tests that can be used for canine species: VIDAS Progesterone and VIDAS T4.
Menu of tests includes:
Next Day Solution for the detection of Salmonella.
VIDAS UP Salmonella is a high performance automated solution designed for the detection of Salmonella in food products.
VIDAS SPT combines the cutting-edge phage recombinant protein technology and the ease-of-use of the VIDAS system.
Providing reliable results in less than 19 hours and validated for samples of up to 375g, this innovative solution is both time-saving and cost-effective, as its speed can accelerate corrective action plans in case of contamination.
