• Assay technology
LIAISON® XL is a fully automated chemiluminescence analyzer, performing the complete sample processing. LIAISON® XL adopts a “Flash” chemiluminescence technology (CLIA) with paramagnetic microparticle solid phase. The same technology is also used on the LIAISON® analyzer offering a perfect compatibility between the systems.
• Reagents Area
The reagents area is temperature controlled. The loading bay for reagents allows continuous loading of the LIAISON® XL system of Integrals or Ancillary reagent. For clarity, an LED below each lane indicates the relevant usage status. Up to 25 integrals and up to 4 ancillary reagents can be loaded at the same time. Integrals can be loaded directly in one of the 25 lanes according to the specifications of the LIAISON® XL, multiple of the same Integral can be present in the reagent area at the same time if needed.
Reagent Integrals are managed with a “Quick Release” feature and are released by the system as soon as the requested process is completed. Starter reagents, responsible for initiating the chemiluminescent reaction, are available on board in a dedicated area and continuosly monitored (lot number, quantity available) and allow continuous loading.
• Reagents integral
The reagent Integral contains all assay specific reagents required to perform the assay. All reagents are ready-to-use and includes the calibrator into the Integral; however there are few exceptions with calibrators supplied as lyophilized component (but in the Integral box) and the HCV assay that require an Ancillary reagent. All the reagents are identified to and monitored by the system. All information concerning number of tests, lot number, stability on board and/ or calibration validity are automatically updated onto the system. Due to the temperature control of the reagent area, most reagent Integrals have a long on board stability.
• Disposable sample tips/cuvettes
No sample carry over is observed on the LIAISON® XL due to adoption of single-use sample tips and single use reaction module (cuvettes). The quantity of cuvettes and sample tips on board is monitored by the instrument software. Due to the large storage of disposables on board, the LIAISON® XL permits a extended walk away time.
