MacroLab II – Telecentric

We developed the MacroLab II in collaboration with our customers. Every component in this system is fixed to ensure your assays are always performed under the exact same conditions.

The MacroLab II is unique. After all, it is customers like you who are in the lab performing assays. And this means no one has better insight into what lab equipment should deliver. We made sure the MacroLab II incorporates everything on your wish list. First and foremost – Accurate images.

Macrolab II is perfect to read lab assays such as :

  • Single Radial Diffusion (SRD on glass plate or film)
  • Hemagglutination inhibition assay (HAI)
  • PRNT on 96w

The optics

The benchtop system is fitted with a particularly broad telecentric lens to enable sample plates measuring up to 120 mm x 100 mm to be captured in a single image without any form of distortion. Physical measurements are reproduced completely error-free throughout every image. You’ll have perfect presentation of the meniscus of  a Petri dish with a 90 mm diameter. And flawless reproduction of every well, whether you’re using 6-, 12-, 24-, 48- or 96-well plates.

Consistency

The MacroScan II series also uses mean red, blue and green density values to ensure perfect calibration. These parameters add to the accuracy of your images. Whether they’re preset or customized, they are stored in a file that you—or colleagues anywhere in the world—can call up when it’s time to validate your images or run further assays.

The calibration parameters saved in the file are not just valid for your system, nor are they just for the MacroLab II. They will work with any MicroTechniX hardware, anywhere in the world. Just send the digital file to another lab for complete consistency and the simple, smooth assay validation you’ve always dreamt of.

Teach & Read

The MacroLab II uses Teach & Read Microtechnix application to acquire high grade quality images and apply the set of parameters specific to your positive samples.

How does it work? With amazing simplicity. You just need to click on region of interest. One click qualifies them as positive. As you click on each positive agent, the software updates up to 40 different parameters, ranging from size to contrast levels and of course, the contours of an agent. It then identifies automatically other agents in the image that fit these criteria, keeping count so you don’t have to.
