System Overview

The New Generation of Immunoassay Testing Empowers Your Lab 

Today, many labs are either performing immunoassay (IA) critical tests on a high throughput platform or not performing them at all and instead relying on external resources for these tests. When critical tests are performed on a high throughput platform, this can cause workflow disruptions for routine IA tests that typically aren’t adapted to urgent demands. In the case of labs that currently rely on external resources for IA testing, the time-to-result is delayed compared to in-house testing, which is not ideal for the clinicians and can cause reputational challenges for the lab.  

As a trusted leader in on-demand immunoassay testing, our new generation VIDAS® 3 empowers your lab with easy access to innovative tests for acute and complex situations to deliver reliable, fast, and actionable results to clinicians.  

VIDAS® 3 is designed with performance and workflow in mind to provide test results that are precise, cost-efficient, and accountable for the benefit of clinicians and their patients. The system is equipped with automation, traceability, and continual access, for greater productivity.
