iTAPP Declares Radiometer’s AQT90 FLEX a ‘High Impact Innovation’

AQT90 FLEX analyzer’s advanced technology allows rapid, laboratory standard testing.

Radiometer’s AQT90 FLEX immunoassay analyzer has been identified by the Innovative Technology Adoption Procurement Programme (iTAPP) as being significant to the NHS Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) agenda, with the benefits it offers to the wider health economy being explored at local, regional and national level.

Diagnosis and treatment of patients presenting to emergency departments, coagulation clinics or early pregnancy units is highly dependent on prompt receipt of pathology results.

The AQT90 FLEX analyzer’s advanced technology allows rapid, laboratory standard testing of a comprehensive panel of cardiac markers, as well as D-dimer, CRP and β-hCG, at the point of care.

The fully automated process uses a closed tube system, eliminating time-consuming manual sample preparation and reducing the risk of staff coming into contact with biological fluids.

Accurate results are consistently generated in less than 20 minutes, enabling faster diagnosis and treatment, and prompt clinical decision making.

This capability - allowing clinicians to quickly rule in or out conditions such as acute coronary syndrome, congestive heart failure, DVT, pulmonary embolisms, acute infections and pregnancy - significantly improves productivity, and patient management and outcomes.

The AQT90 Briefing Pack, published through the NHS Technology Adoption Centre, has been fully integrated into the NICE Health Technologies Adoption Programme, providing comprehensive documentation that demonstrates how the system can yield real, significant and sustainable benefits for local healthcare services.

Childhood Cancer Cells Drain Immune System’s Batteries
Cancer cells in neuroblastoma contain a molecule that breaks down a key energy source for the body’s immune cells, leaving them too physically drained to fight the disease.
Researchers Discover Immune System’s 'Trojan Horse'
Oxford University researchers have found that human cells use viruses as Trojan horses, transporting a messenger that encourages the immune system to fight the very virus that carries it.
Researchers Discover New Type of Mycovirus
Virus infects the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, which can cause the human disease aspergillosis.
How to Become a Follicular T Helper Cell
Uncovering the signals that govern the fate of T helper cells is a big step toward improved vaccine design.
Sorting Through Cellular Statistics
Aaron Dinner, professor in chemistry, and his graduate student Herman Gudjonson are trying to read the manual of life, DNA, as part of the Dinner group’s research into bioinformatics—the application of statistics to biological research.
Women’s Immune System Genes Operate Differently from Men’s
A new technology reveals that immune system genes switch on and off differently in women and men, and the source of that variation is not primarily in the DNA.
Experimental MERS Vaccine Shows Promise in Animal Studies
A two-step regimen of experimental vaccines against Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) prompted immune responses in mice and rhesus macaques, report National Institutes of Health scientists who designed the vaccines.
HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class
High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.
New Weapon in the Fight Against Blood Cancer
This strategy, which uses patients’ own immune cells, genetically engineered to target tumors, has shown significant success against multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells that is largely incurable.
Scientists Create CRISPR/Cas9 Knock-In Mutations in Human T Cells
In a project spearheaded by investigators at UC San Francisco, scientists have devised a new strategy to precisely modify human T cells using the genome-editing system known as CRISPR/Cas9.
