Arlington Scientific unveiled a new sample rack loading system for the ASI Evolution Automated RPR Syphilis Analyzer.

The ASI Smart Rack is an intelligent rack system that makes loading and scanning sample tubes quicker and easier. Some of the features of this proprietary rack system include intelligent positive ID which tracks the positioning of samples, it builds rack files, and minimizes technician hands-on-time, adding increased efficiency in the lab.

“We are constantly striving to improve the functions of our ASI Evolution Automated Syphilis Analyzer to help increase efficiencies in the lab. It has only been in the last few years that automated nontreponemal RPR testing has been available. This new RPR testing technology was developed by Arlington Scientific years ago in response to a need to automate manual RPR testing due to the dramatic increases in syphilis cases nationally and worldwide, and the need for an automated process for labs. The result was the creation of the ASI Evolution,” says Mike LaDow, VP of sales for Arlington Scientific. The ASI Evolution is FDA cleared for diagnostic and blood donor testing and cadaveric (non-heart beating) donor screening.

The new ASI Smart Rack with the ASI Evolutions FDA clearances for diagnostic testing and blood, plasma and cadaveric (non-heart beating) donor screening, help make the ASI Evolution a valuable testing platform for blood banks, diagnostic labs, and cadaveric tissue banks.

The ASI Evolution’s new rack loading system was introduced at the 2022 AACC Annual Clinical Lab Expo.

Arlington Scientific is a U.S.-based global medical technology company that develops, manufactures, and sells in-vitro diagnostics, nonmammalian blocking buffers, diagnostic analyzers for syphilis screening, medical donor lounges for Apheresis and Blood Donor Collection, and nasal curettes for rapid viral testing.
