Multiparametric immunoassay system for medium throughput

VIDAS®  is a reliable and easy-to-use automated benchtop immunoanalyzer. Based on the Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay (ELFA) technology, it provides high quality on-demand test results.

  • Robust system: MTBF > 700 days
  • Ideal for small to medium throughput: up to 80 tests per hour
  • Broad menu: over 100 parameters available in single-test format for routine, complementary, specialized or emergency testing
  • 1 patient = 1 test


VIDAS® offers routine batch or random access testing for serology, immunochemistry, antigen detection and immunohemostasis. Five independent analytical sections allow you to perform 30 tests simultaneously. The VIDAS® PC software enables easy test launch, data management, result storage and bidirectional interface with the laboratory information system. Simple and flexible, VIDAS® facilitates lab workflow with a simple answer to complex needs.
