How it works: VITROS® MicroSlide Technology offers an entire integrated test environment on a thin piece of film. Spreading, masking, scavenger, and reagent layers are discretely combined on one postage-stamp-sized slide to produce first-class precision and accuracy. When plasma, serum, urine, or cerebrospinal fluid come into contact with these dry chemical layers, a spectral reaction occurs, which can be measured by the system. This layered dry slide technology enables separate reaction domains—maximizing each step for exceptional assay performance.

What it offers your lab:

  • Excellent assay performance while reducing costs
  • High-quality results in diverse patient settings
  • Proven methodologies referenced to industry standards, including:
    • Wide dynamic ranges
