The single-test concept

The VIDAS® principle is based on the interaction of two elements: the coated SPR® receptacle, containing antigens or antibodies, and the Strip, made up of a series of wells containing the correct amount of reagent necessary for the test.

All reactions occur within the SPR in two key phases:

  • immunological reaction
  • enzymatic reaction

The entire operation is fully automated: from incubation, to washing and final reading.Incubation time and the number of washing cycles are optimized to ensure peak performance.
