The Qasar IV is a high-capacity, semi-automated
blood grouping system designed to process batches of up to 96 samples
at a time. It is suitable for the larger hospital blood bank and donor
The Qasar IV working platform is of modular construction
and can be configured to suit the individual laboratory's requirements.
The working platform has a total of 4 module locations, each of which
can accommodate a module with a capacity for either 3 microplates or
16 gel cards. The total capacity is therefore 64 gel cards, or 12 plates
or a mixture of both.
Choice of Reagents
The Qasar IV allows you to chose which reagent system
to use. A range of different card modules is available to match your
current reagent requirements (Diamed, Ortho, Sanquin etc) and additional
modules can be purchased should these change in the future.
Security and Safety
The Qasar IV incorporates fully automated identification
of samples, reagents, microplates and cards. Reagent lot numbers are
checked against predefined criteria and processing commences. An active
security shield provides additional protection against identification
errors. If the shield is lifted during processing, the instrument stops
and all components are automatically re-identified before processing
The Qasar IV is based on the reliable and well-proven
Guardian robotic platform and which offers the highest levels of performance
in both pipetting accuracy and processing speed.
The Qasar IV forms part of a complete system when
used in conjunction with the Duet reader. This instrument captures images
of both microplates and cards, interpreting the results using "Aurora"
software. All data from the Qasar IV is securely linked with the data
obtained by the Duet itself.
