A Must-See for IVD: Specialized Service for in Vitro Diagnostic Line

Recently, there have been frequent news of winning bids in the field of in vitro diagnostics.

Speaking of in vitro diagnostic lines, originating in Japan and later developed in Europe and the United States, it introduces the concept of industrial automation into laboratory testing, connects testing systems and processing modules with rails, and reduces the overall testing time. In the background of medical innovation, we can see more and more IVD enterprises entering the pipeline market.

As a specialized enterprise in the field of fluid control, Keyto has provided high-quality supply services to its customers in multiple systems such as pre-processing units, analysis and testing units, and post-processing units in the in vitro diagnostics industry, and has reached deep cooperation with many leading enterprises in the in vitro diagnostics industry.


In vitro diagnostic line

Common assembly line systems are divided into two levels: "Modular Automation (MA) and Total Laboratory Automation (TLA) "According to the classification of testing substances, assembly lines can be divided into biochemical immune workstations, hemostasis and blood analysis workstations, molecular diagnostic workstations, urine analysis workstations, and microbiology workstations, etc.


An automated assembly line can achieve complete automation of the entire process of sample sorting, transportation, processing, analysis, and storage. The assembly line not only has a fast testing speed and high efficiency but also greatly reduces errors and cross-contamination caused by manual operations. The testing results are more stable, reliable, efficient, and of high quality.


To facilitate a more intuitive understanding of the basic operational principles of the assembly line, it can be differentiated into three attribute directions: fluid circuit, gas circuit, and electrical circuit. These attributes can further be subdivided into functional areas such as mechanical structure, analytical detection, temperature control, control, and reagent areas. By mapping these functions to the principles of the instruments, the complexity is mitigated.
