A compact immunoanalyzer with superior assay performance

Precise and Fast

The PATHFAST™ system combines the accuracy of a full-scale lab analyzer with the flexibility of a mobile solution. Its compact design and low weight makes PATHFAST the ideal analysis system in laboratories, hospitals and medical offices available wherever fast quantitative results (with full-scale lab quality) are required at the point of care. With its space-saving design and large degree of flexibility PATHFAST is also an ideal supplement or back-up system in central labs. It can be available at any time (24 hrs per day) without interfering with the processes of routine analysis.

PATHFAST is providing fast, differential diagnosis and is easy to operate, install and network. High precision makes this analyzer an adequate “satellite” of a full-scale lab on a cardiology, intensive care or emergency ward. Parallel processing enables the examination of six samples in only a few minutes from whole blood, serum or plasma.

  • Central lab quality at the point of care
  • Whole blood can be used as sample material
  • Quantitative measurement of 6 analyses in parallel

Operation & Safety

  • Six parallel channels
  • Six quantitative analyses simultaneously.
  • Six results in less than 17 minutes using emergency markers or PATHFAST Presepsin.

This gives PATHFAST its unique speed with up to six different markers or a single marker for one or more patients’ samples in the same run. It is always safe and perfectly efficient. The use of whole blood saves time in obtaining the results while the patient is still at the point of care. Whole blood can be used as sample material so no laborious centrifuge routine is required. Plasma and serum can also be used. With its easy and intuitive design, PATHFAST offers an easy way to analyze your patient samples by performing only 3 simple steps.

 

 

PATHFAST processes the patient samples fully automatically. Lab quality results are generated in a simple 3 step process with no additional reagents, buffer solutions or accessories (e.g. capillaries, cuvettes) required. No water connection or drain is necessary. No special skills are necessary, only a short training is required to operate the PATHFAST. Other practical advantages are the highest operating safety and minimum maintenance expense.

Principle & Precision

PATHFAST is a fully automatic immunoassay analyzer, which combines the progressive chemiluminescence technology with the patented Magtration® technology. Small sample volumes can be detected with high accuracy and precision. The device and the reagent strips provide optimum sensitivity. Whole blood, plasma and serum are automatically identified and processed. The results are perfectly reproducible and correlate outstandingly with lab analyses.
