Optical Reader

The easy-to-use, compact Optical Reader captures and analyzes, through specific software, the microarray in a few seconds based on CCD imaging technology. The optimal optics settings are automatically selected and this makes it particularly suited for minimally-trained personnel and point-of-need applications.

The Optical Reader was designed and developed by STMicroelectronics and its partners and is part of the VerePLEX™ Biosystem marketed and sold by Veredus Laboratories. The OR is compact in size and weighs only 3.6 kg which allows it to be moved as needed without any re-calibration.

The Optical Reader is both easy-to-use and very robust requiring minimal maintenance.
