Aegis 1000

The Aegis 1000 immunoassay has an enhanced target-analyte capture efficiency due to an extremely high surface-area-to-volume ratio. Reagents are supplied in a self-contained, disposable cartridge with built-in valving and flow cell. The instrument provides quantitative results for six simultaneous assays. The Aegis 1000 was designed for food testing, clinical diagnosis and environmental monitoring.
