Curian uses a fluorometric technology that requires analysis using a UV light in order to interpret results. There will not be a visible line on the test card for positive results, unlike colorimetric assays which produce a color change when positive.
Fluorometric assays often achieve a higher sensitivity and specificity over colorimetric assays, along with a lower limit of detection (LoD). Fluorometric assays remove subjectivity, so technologists don’t need ask around to see if a line is truly present – the analyzer will do that for them.
Curian has dual mode capability. The first mode is Analyze Now – this is the best option for batch testing. Multiple test cards can be incubated on the bench top for 20 minutes. Then the test cards are read one-by-one by inserting into the analyzer. The second mode is Incubate & Analyze. This is convenient for single patient samples when a laboratory is running samples as they come in. The test card is immediately inserted into the analyzer after sample prep and the analyzer will automatically read the card after a 20-minute incubation. This allows the technologist to walk away and perform other duties while test is running. These two options provide flexibility to meet specific laboratory workflow demands.
Curian has 4 data management options. You can choose to print results via an ancillary printer, export results via a USB, store results on board and retrieve when needed, or transmit results via an LIS connection.
A barcode scanner is included with the purchase of a Curian analyzer. The keyboard and printer are optional for an additional charge.
