LabConnect Technology

V8 Nexus achieves unprecedented throughput with laboratory track connectivity.

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:

  • Inpeco FlexLab™
  • Abbott Accelerator™
  • Siemens Aptio™


Network interpretation

Analyse, interpret and report — anywhere and at any time.

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.
