SPIFE 3000 / ESH / Quickscan Touch Semi Automated Gel Electrophoresis
SPIFETouch1

SPIFETouch2
New! SPIFE Touch
Smaller. Faster. Touch screen. Versatile.
Those are the design specs behind all the Touch Series analyzers. SPIFE Touch builds on the proven track record of the SPIFE agarose gel electrophoresis analyzer, but is 30% faster, uses lower stain and destain volumes and has a touch screen user interface.
SPIFE Touch can handle the full menu of SPIFE assays and integrates seamlessly with the new ESH Touch sample handler and the QuickScan Touch densitometer. Together, the Touch Series can handle the needs of most laboratories, even those with the highest volumes and most complex patient populations.

ESHTouch1
ESHTouch2New! ESH Touch
The next generation of Electrophoresis Sample Handler is now available as part of Helena's integrated solution for high volume electrophoresis workloads. Like its predecessor, ESH Touch provides automated front-end specimen processing for the SPIFE 3000 with positive patient ID and interface to QuickScan Touch or LIS - but in a smaller, faster, quieter, more flexible and user-friendly package.

ESH Touch transfers samples directly from primary patient tubes to barcoded sample trays, ready for application to agarose gels by the SPIFE 3000. The expanded 100-sample capacity accommodates the largest SPIFE 3000 gels, and the touch-screen interface makes the system easy to use, including specific dilution schemes for each sample.

QScanTouch1
QScanTouch2QuickScan Touch
Touch the screen and automatically demarcate the Monoclonal band. Swipe the slider and reverse the pattern image for easier analysis. Automatically overlay previous patient results from a massive data store. These are just a few features of the newest QuickScan densitometer. The QuickScan Touch builds on the proven success of the QuickScan series, adding a high resolution monitor for sharper patterns, an easy to use touch screen interface, user ID audit trail and essentially unlimited data storage.

016Serum and Urine Proteins
The Helena laboratories agarose gel range can accommodate different requirements for resolution and workload. Available products vary from classic five band separation of proteins, split beta separation and high resolution separation of protein fractions. The size of the gels also varies accommodating from 10 samples per gel (on the Quickgel system) to 100 samples per gel (on the SPIFE3000 system).

The gels are suitable for serum and urine gel electrophoresis.

Serum protein controls, normal and abnormal, are also available. These are lyophilized controls and are prepared from pooled human serum, for use with the SPIFE SPE Vis and Split-Beta SPE kits.

007SPIFE Alkaline Phosphatase Isoenzymes
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) isoenzymes found in human serum originate from several sources with the greatest activity found in bone, liver, intestine, and the placenta. Tissue sources of elevated alkaline phosphatase in serum can be determined by identifying the isoenzyme. The isoenzymes differ in their physicochemical and electrophoretic properties, allowing identification. In addition to liver, bone, intestinal and placental isoenzymes, macrohepatic, Regan, PA, Nagao, and renal isoenzymes have been identified. These isoenzymes can be identified using the SPIFE analyser. SPIFE ALP agarose gels have a unique additive in the gel matrix to ensure separation of macrohepatic from liver and bone fractions. Sample pre-treatment with neuraminidase provides greater separation. Up to 40 samples per gel can be assayed with less than 5 minutes hands-on time.
 

Product Code Item
3346 SPIFE ALP-40 Kit (10 x 40 samples/gel)
3345 SPIFE SPIFE ALP-20 Kit (10 x 20 samples/gel)
3348 SPIFE ALP Separation Enhancer (1 x 4 mL)

The neuraminidase in the Separation Enhancer causes a greater reduction in mobility of the bone enzyme than the liver isoenzyme upon electrophoresis. 50 µL of patient sample is pre-treated with 10 µL of separation enhancer within 10 minutes of electrophoresis, to provide greater separation of bone and liver isoenzymes.
5104 Gel ALP Isoenzyme Control (1 x 2 mL)

This control is for use as a qualitative and/or quantitative control to aid in the identification of alkaline phosphatase isoenzymes by agarose gel electrophoresis. It is prepared from pooled human serum and contains liver and bone isoenzyme bands. The control is a stabilized liquid.

009SPIFE CK Isoenzymes
A new visible CK Isoenzyme assay is now available for the SPIFE electrophoresis system. SPIFE provides full automation of this assay with automated sample application, reagent application and separation. Up to 40 samples can be separated into the traditional MM, MB and BB fractions in 65 minutes. Smaller 10 and 20 sample sized kits are also available. CK Isoenzyme analysis is well established for documenting myocardial injury and electrophoresis is the reference method. There are fewer false positives, fewer repeat tests, identification of atypicals and visual confirmation of results. SPIFE’s automation makes isoenzyme testing as easy as any immunochemical or chemistry analyser method.

010SPIFE Alkaline Hemoglobin and Acid Haemoglobin Kits
Separations with SPIFE Alkaline Haemoglobin mimic classic cellulose acetate and are the front line for detecting haemoglobinopathies. Use of acid blue stain provides excellent sensitivity and linearity. Precise temperature control improves separation, resolving even problematic Haemoglobin H.

SPIFE Acid Haemoglobin is a much less cumbersome method than conventional citrate agar for characterizing haemoglobinopathies. The use of acid blue stain brings linearity not available with O-Tolidine or O-Dianisidine based systems. Finished gels are stable in storage and will not continue to darken.
