Powerful capillary-based immunodisplacement test

Helena’s Immunodisplacement test utilises the V8 Nexus on-board antisera capability to perform immunotyping with no manual operator intervention. Because the entire process is completely automated, our Platinum 5 software enables the operator to instantly link, compare and report on the Immunodisplacement data in context with the original Serum Protein result.

  • Up to 19 Immunodisplacements per hour
  • Instant linking and comparison of all historical patient results
  • Fully automated workflow with Helena’s Expert System


Urine proteins

Flexible and automated urine protein analysis

Perform automated integrated urine protein testing using on-board reagents for each of Helena’s serum protein assays. V8 Nexus can also automated the preparation of gel trays for further analysis and confirmation using our SAS-1+ and SAS-3 gel analysers.

Regulatory information

Intended Purpose

V8 Urine Preparation Buffer SP6 Zoom Kit, V8 Urine Preparation Buffer SPE Kit and V8 Urine Preparation Buffer SP6 Kit are accessories used to elute proteins from packed columns or spin columns after their recovery from urine and store those proteins in a pH regulated matrix for downstream analysis by Capillary Electrophoresis. Intended for use by a trained laboratory professional in a clinical laboratory. V8 Urine Preparation Buffer SP6 Zoom Kit, V8 Urine Preparation Buffer SPE Kit and V8 Urine Preparation Buffer SP6 Kit have no clinical or analytical function in isolation.
