AP BLOT ELITE is a fully automated Dot Blot processor able to manage in the same run sample dilution and its dispensation, reagent dispensation, incubation times, strip washings, dot assessment by image processing of strip; the supplied software is also to provide the final report and record the results. Pictures of processed strips are directly taken form a digital colour camera when are still into the allotment trays. The system is able to automatically determine the strip position, indentify the releated blots, measure the blot intensity and give the results. Then the digital images are stored with a detailed report in a file, avoiding the tiring and time consuming task to collate the strips for the record. The instrument is equipped with a builtin sliding sample BCR. A strip heating system reduces the blot drying time before the reading phase
