How it works: VITROS® MicroTip Technology utilizes single-use disposable tips and closed reagent packs to eliminate the risk of sample carryover and reagent-to-reagent contamination, and to extend onboard reagent stability. It requires no drains, plumbing, fixed probes, or mixing assemblies to perform therapeutic and abused drug testing, specific proteins, and user-defined applications.

What it offers your lab:

  • Liquid, ready-to-use reagents that need no preparation*
  • Refrigerated storage to maximize on-system stability
  • Reagent packs that are automatically opened and closed
    • Limits contamination, evaporation, and reagent cross-talk
    • Enhances reagent and calibration stability
    • Helps ensure quality results
    • Contains costs by reducing reagent waste
      • Single-use sample and reagent tips to address carryover concerns
      • Single-use reaction cuvettes for greater precision and accuracy
        *Except for caffeine reagents
        • Offers 3-point cuvette read
        • Detects bubbles and other imperfections
        • Avoids erroneous result reporting
        • Allows greater flexibility for setting up user-defined assays
