The EUROLineScan software performs fully automated evaluation of EUROIMMUN blot strips, and administration and electronic archiving of the individual data. Moreover, EUROLineScan simplifies the incubation procedure by producing clearly laid out work protocols – also when connected to a laboratory information system (LIS) or EUROLabOffice 4.0.
The incubated strips are scanned onto a work protocol using a flatbed scanner, or by means of the integrated camera system (EUROBlotOne) while still in the incubation tray. EUROLineScan automatically recognises the position of the strips, identifies the bands and measures their intensity. The user can view the results and images of the strips in an overview and in a detailed individual view in order to verify the suggested results. The results are then saved automatically together with the image data. In this way, it is no longer necessary to archive the incubated (and potentially infectious) strips.
