UNIQO is the new high-performance automated system for IFA procedure, from slide preparation to test validation. It provides laboratories with an all-in-one solution which integrates automatic IFA protocol with slide mounting, image acquisition, analysis and archiving.
UNIQO supports standardization eliminating the inconsistency of human intervention and maximizing the accuracy of the overall IFA process, from dispensing and accurate slide mounting, to a more objective images acquisition and analysis.
An innovative software manages and controls the entire experimental workflow guaranteeing optimal slides processing and image capture for a fully automated analysis of immunofluorescence signals and efficient data management.
Moreover, the integrated virtual microscope permits the navigation and the revision of the digitized slide from remote workstations, eliminating the problem of slide storage and fluorescent signal conservation along time.
