AFIAS COVID-19 Ab automated immunoassay in conjunction with AFIAS-1 analyzer
The AFIAS COVID-19 Ab (in conjunction with AFIAS-6 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-6 is a multi-channel automated immunoassay analyzer which enables the user to simultaneously perform the same test on six different clinical samples or simultaneously perform six different AFIAS IVD tests. AFIAS-6 detect or measures the concentration of target analyte in a clinical sample loaded onto a self-contained test cartridge which is then inserted in one of the six test cartridge ports of the analyzer to automatically complete further steps to display the test result.
AFIAS-6 automated test process enables to carry out multiple simultaneous tests for six different samples. 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).

AFIAS COVID-19 Ab Test Cartridge
AFIAS COVID-19 Ab test cartridge is an unitized, self-contained, ready-to-use test device to be used in conjunction with AFIAS-1 or AFIAS-6 analyzer by simply loading the clinical sample onto the test cartridge thereby offering great convenience to the user. AFIAS-1 and AFIAS-6 analyzers qualitatively detects IgG/IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in serum, plasma, venous whole blood or fingerstick capillary whole blood samples to automatically display the result after 10 minutes. The AFIAS COVID-19 Ab test cartridge is marked with a barcode, which signifies the identity of the test cartridge after sample-loaded test cartridge is inserted in and scanned by the analyzer

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I test the same item simultaneously?
No. Six different items can be tested simultaneously.
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.
Does sample mixing and dispensing occur automatically?
Yes. AFIAS-6 is a semi-automatic immunodiagnostic device that automatically mixes and dispenses samples when user loads sample only.
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.
