HELIOS fully automated walkaway IFA processing and reading. It’s completely traceable and provides standardized IFA processing no matter the operator. It automatically starts reading and processes without any human interventions in the middle of the process. It is more thorough than a manual system. It works by electronically staring your worklist. The reader provides the patient ID and the connectivity to the LIS chooses the correct tests and dilutions for each ID. Press start and collect your results when done. Run preparation takes 10 minutes and it automatically adds mounting medium. The automatic microscope reads without coverslips.
