SAN DIEGO, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Werfen, a worldwide leader in specialized diagnostics for autoimmune disease, is pleased to announce the CE Mark of Aptiva® CTD Essential Reagent for use on the Aptiva® system. Aptiva is a fully automated multi-analyte system that represents the next generation of high throughput instruments for the clinical laboratory.
Aptiva addresses many health economic shortcomings in the autoimmune laboratory. Existing systems provide a limited number of analytes that leave a significant seronegative gap found in many disease states. Aptiva will cover several autoimmune disease states and has over 60 analytes in various stages of advanced development. These analytes have the potential to help clinicians close the seronegative gap and improve diagnostic confidence.
Aptiva also provides economic benefits for the laboratory. The 150-sample rack capacity and a 6.5-hour consumable walkaway time delivers new levels of workflow efficiencies by reducing the number of daily interventions. Aptiva uses a digital particle-based multi-analyte technology (PMAT), that processes multiple analytes simultaneously from a patient sample. PMAT enables Aptiva CTD Essential Reagent to deliver up to 660 results per hour and allows the laboratory to complete its test volume with minimal hands-on time.
“Aptiva CTD Essential with its unique biomarker composition and high level of analytical and clinical performance represents a breakthrough that fundamentally enhances the utility of diagnostic testing in the autoimmune laboratory,” said Michael Mahler, PhD., Vice President of Research and Development at Werfen. “Aptiva CTD Essential will deliver expanded information to clinicians for management of patients with autoimmune diseases.”
