The VIDAS® principle is based on the interaction of two elements: the coated SPR® receptacle, containing antigens or antibodies, and the Strip, made up of a series of wells containing the correct amount of reagent necessary for the test.
All reactions occur within the SPR in two key phases:
- immunological reaction
- enzymatic reaction
The entire operation is fully automated: from incubation, to washing and final reading.Incubation time and the number of washing cycles are optimized to ensure peak performance.
