Compact Semi-Automated Blood Grouping System
The QASAR 300 is a compact and flexible instrument providing the smaller laboratory with cost-effective automation with maximum possible security. The QASAR 300 automates all the pipetting, reagent addition, incubation and washing steps that form part of setting up blood grouping assays.
Although small, the QASAR 300 boasts an impressive capacity, helping you to maximise the use of your limited bench space. Occupying under 700 mm, it still has the capacity to process batches of up to 64 samples depending on layout option selected and tests that that need to be performed.
The QASAR 300 can be used to perform all of the following tests:
Uses any reagents
A range of different card and plate racks is available to match your reagent supplier's consumables. Furthermore, the deck of the QASAR 300 has a unique racking system which allows different layouts to be readily interchanged. The Layout below is populated with 64 barcoded sample tubes and associated red cell dilution tubes, 18 Gel Cards plus reagents. However, different configurations are available to suit particular workloads and test formats.
Easy to use
The QASAR 300 is extremely easy to use. Simply select the desired protocol (Group & Screen, Group only, Screen only, etc.) and then enter the number of samples to process.
Secure & safe
For maximum security, the QASAR 300 incorporates automated identification of samples, reagents, microplates and cards. A security shield provides additional protection against identification errors. Once a batch has been started, a barcode reader automatically identifies all the assay components on the deck. Reagent lot numbers are checked against predefined criteria and processing commences. If the security shield is lifted during processing, all security checks are repeated.
During processing, the operator is provided with continuously updated information on the progress of the batch. A colour display shows which tubes have been processed and also indicates whether any errors, such as an insufficient sample, have been encountered.
Simple & reliable
The QASAR 300 is based on reliable and well-proven technology incorporated into over a thousand analysers worldwide. Its simple and robust design will ensure it remains a true "workhorse"in your laboratory for many years to come.
