AQUIOS Tetra

AQUIOS Tetra

Reagents & Consumables

AQUIOS™ reagents and consumables have been optimized for peak performance when used with the AQUIOS CL Flow Cytometer. The Aquios CL is equipped with an automatic sample loader that utilizes cassettes to queue samples for preparation and analysis. Each cassette holds up to five specimen tubes. Up to eight cassettes, a maximum of 40 specimens, can be loaded at one time. Cassettes can be loaded and unloaded without interrupting the system’s workflow.

Different specimen cassettes are available to accommodate a variety of blood collection tubes. Each cassette is uniquely identified.

Reagents for the AQUIOS CL System

AQUIOS Tetra - Performance

Performance.

AQUIOS reagents and consumables have been optimized for peak performance when used with the AQUIOS CL Flow Cytometer. An integral part of the system, they deliver a high level of reliability to the user. With AQUIOS reagents, there is no need to mix your own monoclonal antibodies.

The stated analytical characteristics and specifications for the AQUIOS system can only be guaranteed by using AQUIOS reagents and the AQUIOS Deep Well Plate


Convenience.

AQUIOS Tetra - Convenience

All AQUIOS reagents, with the exception of the Sodium Hypochlorite, are labeled with barcodes for fast loading and to minimize potential errors. Onboard reagents, when placed on the system, are automatically detected by the system. Demographic data such as lot number, expiration date, product ID, etc., is captured in the system log.

AQUIOS Sheath Solution and AQUIOS Cleaning Agent are presented to the system’s barcode reader by the user. The barcode is read and the demographic data is captured. There is no need for manual entry of this information.


Smart Track Reagent Monitoring.

AQUIOS Tetra - Smart Track Reagent Monitoring

A key benefit of the AQUIOS system is that reagent usage is automatically tracked by the system. The user can easily view how much of each reagent is left on the computer monitor, and plan the remaining workload accordingly. The system provides user-selectable alerts when the “reagent low” condition occurs.

The AQUIOS reagents (with the exception of the AQUIOS Sodium Hypochlorite Solution) and the AQUIOS Deep Well Plates are labeled with bar codes for Smart Track monitoring to help minimize potential errors. The system will only run with AQUIOS reagents and the AQUIOS Deep Well Plate.

Cost effectiveness.

AQUIOS reagents are not only designed for the highest quality, but also deliver the best for less. Compare the significant difference between the number of reagents required in traditional flow cytometry versus the number of reagents required for the AQUIOS.

Reagents

AQUIOS Tetra-1 Panel

AQUIOS Tetra-1 Panel

AQUIOS Tetra-1 Panel Monoclonal Antibody Reagents is a four-color monoclonal antibody cocktail consisting of CD45-FITC/CD4-RD1/CD8-ECD/CD3-PC5, and is used in the identification and enumeration of total CD3+, CD3+CD4+, CD3+CD8+, CD3+CD4+/CD3+CD8+ (ratio only) lymphocyte percentages and absolute counts in peripheral whole blood, plus the CD45+ absolute count and CD45+ Low SS (lymphocytes) percentage and absolute count.

The formulation is optimized for high performance on the AQUIOS Flow Cytometer system: no experimenting, mixing or other pre-analysis work is necessary. The AQUIOS Tetra-1 Panel is ready to use. AQUIOS monoclonal reagent vials are cap pierce-able so there is no need to uncap and recap the vials every day.

The vials are barcoded , which allows the user to load the vials in any random position. LOAD the vial in the carousel onboard the system, and GO. The system does the rest. The vial contains 50 tests. High volume laboratories may load multiple vials in the reagent carousel and the system will automatically detect their presence and move from one vial to the next as needed.


AQUIOS Tetra-2+ Panel

AQUIOS Tetra+2 Panel

AQUIOS Tetra-2+ Panel Monoclonal Antibody Reagents is a four-color monoclonal antibody cocktail consisting of CD45-FITC/(CD56 + CD16)-RD1/CD19-ECD/CD3-PC5, and is used in the identification and enumeration of total CD3+, CD3-CD19+, CD3-CD56+ and/or CD16+ lymphocyte percentages and absolute counts in peripheral whole blood, plus the CD45+ absolute count and CD45+ Low SS (lymphocytes) percentage and absolute count.

The formulation is optimized for high performance on the AQUIOS Flow Cytometer system: no experimenting, mixing or other pre-analysis work is necessary. The AQUIOS Tetra-2+ Panel is ready to use. AQUIOS monoclonal reagent vials are cap pierce-able so there is no need to uncap and recap the vials every day.

The vials are barcoded , which allows the user to load the vials in any random position. LOAD the vial in the carousel onboard the system, and GO. The system does the rest. The vial contains 50 tests. High volume laboratories may load multiple vials in the reagent carousel and the system will automatically detect their presence and move from one vial to the next as needed.


AQUIOS Lysing Reagent Kit

AQUIOS Lysing Reagent Kit is used as part of the AQUIOS flow cytometer system. The kit consists of two reagents used by AQUIOS flow cytometers to prepare whole blood samples for analysis of white blood cells.

The Lysing Reagent Kit consists of a Reagent A and a Reagent B. Reagent A lyses red blood cells in whole blood samples sufficiently to perform monoclonal antibody panel analysis without interference from red blood cells. Reagent B slows the lysing reaction sufficiently to allow analysis without damage to white blood cells.

The lysing reagents are placed onboard the system and are barcoded, which allows the system to detect their presence and position. High volume users can load multiple containers and the system will automatically move from one container to the next as needed


AQUIOS IMMUNO-TROL Cells

AQUIOS IMMUNO-TROL Cells is an assayed, lysable whole blood quality control product for immunophenotyping analysis using monoclonal antibody reagents and flow cytometry. It provides a positive cell control that is processed in the same manner as a whole blood sample. This allows verification of instrument and reagent performance. It also verifies the methods used for staining targeted cells, the lysing of erythrocytes, and the analysis of samples by the AQUIOS CL Flow Cytometer.

When using Tetra-1 Panel or Tetra-2+ Panel tests, there are 15 tests per tube. When using the Tetra Combo, there are 10 tests per tube


AQUIOS IMMUNO-Trol Low Cells

AQUIOS IMMUNO-TROL Low Cells is an assayed, lysable whole blood quality control product for immunophenotyping analysis using monoclonal antibody reagents and flow cytometry. It provides a positive cell control that is processed in the same manner as a whole blood sample. This allows verification of instrument and reagent performance. It also verifies the methods used for staining targeted cells, the lysing of erythrocytes, and the analysis of samples by the AQUIOS CL Flow Cytometer.

When using Tetra-1 Panel or Tetra-2+ Panel tests, there are 15 tests per tube. When using the Tetra Combo, there are 10 tests per tube.


AQUIOS Sheath Solution

AQUIOS Sheath Solution is a non-fluorescent, azide free balanced electrolyte solution for use on AQUIOS flow cytometers with light scatter and fluorescent applications.

The AQUIOS Sheath Solution is manufactured for low particulate and fluorescence background to ensure superior signal to noise ratio measurements during the analysis process.


AQUIOS Cleaning Agent

A cleaning agent for use on the AQUIOS flow cytometer components that come in contact with blood samples. This azide-free, formaldehyde-free, biodegradable cleaner contains a proteolytic enzyme that aids in the removal of protein buildup in the fluidics system and flow cell of a flow cytometer.

The Cleaning Agent resides onboard the instrument and is used in automatic cleaning cycles.


AQUIOS Sodium Hypochlorite Solution

AQUIOS Sodium Hypochlorite Solution is a cleaning agent used as part of an AQUIOS flow cytometer system. The solution maintains AQUIOS instruments in optimal condition.

Sodium Hypochlorite reacts with protein buildup in the instrument. It is used as a preventative measure for optimal system operation as well as for corrective measures.

Consumables

AQUIOS Deep Well Plate

The AQUIOS Deep Well Plate is a 96-well, conical bottom microplate that optimizes the sample preparation process in the AQUIOS system. The plate is a high quality deep well type, made of virgin polypropylene.

Each Deep Well Plate has a unique barcode that is automatically read when placed onboard the system. This enables the system to track sample locations.


Waste Collection Container

These empty 10L cubes are offered as a convenient waste collection container. Many labs keep extra waste containers on hand to ensure that there is no interruption in running the system.
