V8 (Velocity 8) Automated Capillary Electrophoresis


V8 (Velocity 8) Automated Capillary Electrophoresis

V8 is an eight-channel automated clinical capillary electrophoresis system intended for the preparation, separation and analysis of proteins derived from human samples, such as blood, serum, urine, haemoglobin and cerebrospinal fluid.

Utilising specially designed assays, V8 provides sophisticated diagnostic information for a wide variety of inflammatory conditions and disease states, helping clinicians to monitor and treat patients for effective primary care.

Incorporating the latest technology, V8 is an intelligent analyser with full walk-away automation, multi assay functionality and rapid reflex testing for fast and continuous diagnosis of multiple disease states. The Platinum 4 software has the advantage of being the world’s most advanced software package for automated capillary electrophoresis and provides clinicians a comprehensive set of analytical tools and user-defined options that can meet their needs.

006Serum and Urine Proteins
There are three Serum Protein chemistry options available for the V8: SPE, SP6 and SP6 Zoom. This unique family of kits allows the user to select a formulation which best suits their requirements of resolution and throughput. Similarly, there are three V8 Urine Protein preparation buffer kits that allow the user to prepare samples for analysis on the V8.

Following desalting, the V8 is able to analyse urine samples alongside serum, in the same data session, maximising sample throughput. The same buffer chemistry and Immunodisplacement options are available for both analyte types. Desalt urine samples using either gravity columns or centrifugal concentrators.

Samples can be run together in mixed batches and urine proteins quantified and identified alongside serums or in isolation.

The Serum Protein SPE and SP6 Zoom have a throughput of 48 samples per hour and a sensitivity of 0.208 g/L, the enhanced resolution of the SP6 Zoom, providing additional diagnostic information for those requiring it. The SP6 has a throughput of 80 samples per hour and sensitivity of 0.220 g/L and is suitable as a high throughput assay for the rapid screening for monoclonal gammopathies.
All kits are compatible with the universal immunodisplacement immunotyping kit.

The following serum protein kits are available for use on the V8:

009Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin
Alcohol is the most abused drug in Western society with over 55 million adults drinking harmful levels in the EU alone. Harmful and dependant drinking of alcohol is the 3rd biggest cause of early death and illness and is linked to hazardous social behaviours, such as dangerous driving. The V8 Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin kit separates and quantifies the % disialotransferrin isoform, the primary target molecule for CDT analysis, for the Clinical investigation and monitoring of chronic alcohol use.
  • Separation and quantitation of % disialotransferrin
  • Automated detection and identification of transferrin isoforms
  • Automatic calculation of % disialotransferrin (CDT)
  • CDT values < 1.62% generally considered normal
  • Separation and detection of genetic transferrin variants and congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG)
