V8 Nexus is designed from the inside out to deliver new automation, stunning performance and enhanced flexibility. With accelerated capillary technology, seamless connectivity to laboratory tracks and Helena’s unique integrated gel workflow, no other system comes close to this level of power.
V8 Nexus is the first automated clinical electrophoresis system in the world available for connection to a track system and capable of serving laboratories with large workloads, whilst supporting a fully integrated gel immunotyping capability. Capable of over 2300 SPE tests per day, V8 Nexus together with Platinum 6 will automatically process, analyse and return results with peaks identified and labelled.
The system is compatible with leading track providers:
Platinum 6 supports real-time viewing, editing and reporting of results from across your network, allowing you to separate the analysis and interpretation processes and enable different staff to work from wherever is most convenient.
The software integrates seamlessly with your laboratory’s information system (LIMS), automating host-query and reporting, and records a complete audit trail for patient ID, gel and buffer/reagent lot data, whilst logging all operator tasks for easy search and review.
V8 Nexus provides the unique ability to prepare sample trays for gel electrophoresis testing and confirmation, with automated dilutions and complete end-to-end patient ID and reagent traceability.
V8 Nexus maximises efficiency by performing automated maintenance procedures at start-up, shut-down and between runs. Smart automated start-up means that your system will be ready and waiting when you arrive.
Platinum 6 combines all status and management facilities into a single, at-a-glance overview of your analyser, highlighting any issues in a user-friendly graphical display. Direct control and status recording features allow you to audit and perform pre-run maintenance checks with ease.
V8 Nexus allows you to use up to 4 differing or duplicate method buffers plus maintenance and waste. The system tracks each buffer via barcode, efficiently switching between them automatically.
With 10 temperature-controlled reagent positions, V8 Nexus can prepare up to 668 gel SP tests as well as gel IFE and Haemoglobins, with user or auto-dilutions based on monoclonal or polyclonal size.
This unique capability provides a variable wavelength detection range of 200-600nm, enabling reflex testing for contrast media and screening for interfering factors, and support for new tests.
V8 Nexus is our next-generation hardware platform, with a powerful new capillary design delivering double the throughput of serum proteins and Immunodisplacement compared with previous analysers.
V8 Nexus is entirely driven via the attached PC with our powerful new touchscreen user interface. Analysis is a completely hands-free process with all sample preparation, electrophoresis and recall completely automated.
V8 Nexus supports continuous loading with an on-board capacity of 112 sample tubes, and provides random-access ordering and retrieval of samples for completely automated priority and reflex testing.
V8 Nexus allows comprehensive and detailed monitoring of the analyser’s vital signs, enabling capillary status, buffer levels and analytical measurements to be viewed and recorded.
Keep an eye on your ordered tests with Platinum 6’s user-friendly graphical displays. Every aspect of analyser operation is represented on-screen for instant, at-a-glance updates.
V8 Nexus communicates its overall status intuitively from across the laboratory, using its clear, colour-coded lighting system to indicate idle, conditioning, analysis and error conditions.
