EPIQO is an automated system consisting of a fluorescent microscope and software for routine laboratory used by professional users. The automated system acquires, analyzes, stores and displays digital images of stained indirect immunofluorescent slides.
It is intended as an aid in the detection and classification of certain antibodies by indirect immunofluorescence technology (IIF). All suggested results obtained with EPIQO system must be confirmed by a trained operator.
Automated scanning, analysis and interpretation of test results are performed strictly on certain IFA ANA HEp-2 slides. The IFA ANA HEp-2 kit is an indirect fluorescent antibody procedure for the detection and semi-quantitation of human nuclear autoantibodies by manual fluorescence microscopy or with the Imaging System, to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases.
