spinit® instrument

spinit® is a fully automated diagnostics solution designed to deliver blood analysis information to physicians in minutes.

Haematology. Immunoassay. Clinical Chemistry

With its unique technology spinit® is capable of delivering results using a variety of different detection methods allowing it to combine immunoassay, haematology and/or clinical chemistry targets in the same panel. This provides the results that the physicians really need for clinical situations.

    inflammation

    The spinit® inflammation disposable disc is used with the spinit® instrument as a quantitative assay for the measurement of the CRP, total leucocyte count, 5-part differential WBC and haematocrit.

    lipids

    The spinit® Lipids panel disposable disc is used with the spinit® instrument as a quantitative assay for the measurement of cholesterol, HDL, LDL, tryglicerides, non-HDL, Chol/HDL ratio.

    solution:experience

    comfortable

    Only one drop of blood instead of drawing blood from the vein.

    simple

    As easy as playing a CD.

    fast

    Leave your patients with answers, not questions.

    solution:technology

    advanced microfluidics

    All microfluidic elements and functions are integrated in a toolbox approach in the spinit® discs. biosurfit explores advanced proprietary microfluidics to perform all the required steps for any diagnostic test: allowing samples to be prepared, suspended or modified as required, resuspension of reagents, aliquoting, mixing and fluid delivery to detection areas. This is all integrated inside a plastic DVD-like disc and operated by a simple rotation protocol using a standard DVD drive.

    The spinit® system combines three different methods, that currently cover the vast majority of blood analysis.

    detection methods

    Immunoassays are performed with Surface Plasmon Resonance detection, using a polarised laser beam focused on the detection spots. The resonance of the light, detected by a phototransistor is altered by the presence of any molecules bound to the antibodies and this change (or SPR shift) quantifies the amount of protein present in the patient's blood.

    Automated cytology is performed using an integrated microscopy module, specific microfluidic structures and standard haematology dyes.

    Clinical chemistry assays are performed by measuring the absorbance of light at different wave lengths using multiple LEDs.
