AFIAS COVID-19 Ab automated immunoassay in conjunction with AFIAS-1 analyzer
The AFIAS COVID-19 Ab (in conjunction with AFIAS-1 analyzer) is a fluorescence Immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of IgG/IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in serum, plasma, venous whole blood or fingerstick capillary whole blood samples from individuals with current or prior COVID-19 infection. The AFIAS COVID-19 Ab is intended for use as an aid in identifying patients with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating recent or prior infection.
AFIAS-1 is an automated immunoassay analyzer that detect or measures the concentration of target analyte in a clinical sample loaded onto a self-contained test cartridge which is then inserted in the analyzer to automatically complete further steps to display the test result.
AFIAS-1 uses a single channel, it is optimized for small and mid-sized hospitals (or clinics) testing up to 10 samples per hour. For some tests, such as TSH, CRP, PCT, and HbA1c, a quantitative test can be performed using a small sample 30uL of whole blood from a finger or heel using an applicable C-tip (capillary tip).

Frequently Asked Questions
Does sample mixing and dispensing occur automatically?
Yes. AFIAS-1 is a semi-automatic immunodiagnostic device that automatically mixes and dispenses samples when user loads sample only.
What is C-tip?
C-tip is an special tip with a capillary shape at the end. It is possible to measure some specific markers such as HbA1c, PCT, TSH, CRP and total b-hCG easily with AFIAS readers by fingertip sampling.
Do I always need to insert an ID chip when testing?
No. After inserting the ID Chip once for a specific lot, it is not necessary to insert the ID Chip continuously because the AFIAS readers store the corresponding ID Chip information.
Where is the SD card slot positioned?
The SD card slot is located on the bottom of the product. Please be sure to leave the tip waste box empty before use.
How often do I need to empty the tip waste box?
Once a day is recommended.
