The BlueDiver Instrument is the result of an internal development to automate BlueDiver Dot, BlueDiver Quantrix and BlueDiver Combi kits.
The BlueDiver Instrument is a compact and innovative machine which processes the strips with ready-to-use reagents provided in individual cartridges.
This “no pump – no liquid handling” machine presents many advantages such as a time-effectiveness (results are obtained in only 1 hour), limited maintenance (no pumps/tubes to be serviced or replaced), space-effectiveness (BlueDiver Instrument is azs compact as a microwave oven)
Moreover the specific architecture of the BlueDiver Instrument and the standardized test procedures allow the testing of 24 different samples on 24 similar or completely different test strips. This fact combined with the tremendous reduction of processing time gives maximum flexibility to laboratory technicians.
The BlueDiver Instrument has been conceived to comply with the CE IVD recommendations and major laboratory accreditation requirements.
The BlueDiver Instrument is used in combination with the Dr DOT software.
Dr DOT is a multilingual software which allows an easy semi-quantitative or quantitative interpretation of respectively BlueDot, BlueDiver Dot, BlueDiver Quantrix and BlueDiver Combi kits. It only requests a computer and the BlueScan scanner.
The BlueScan is a flat-bed scanner dedicated to the interpretation of D-tek’s strips. The scanner contains an internal standard scale which allows the calibration of the scanner at any time.
The Dr DOT software contains a database that keeps record of all saved results (numeric values and scanned images). So, one specific result can be found via a multi-criteria research engine. The Dr DOT software can import and export data in CSV (Comma Separated Values) format from and to the Laboratory Information System (LIS). Final results can also be sent by e-mail (Outlook or Outlook Express), printed and saved on pdf format.
Once installed on a computer, the software works free of charge for a 30 days evaluation period. After that, the user has to register for a license which is granted for life and includes free of charge updates.
