This used Sebia Hydrasys electrophoresis system is a multiparameter semiautomated instrument which performs any agarose gel electrophoresis that is available in the manual Hydragel series of tests (e.g., Serum Proteins,Immunofixation, Lipoprotein + Lp (a), Hemoglobins alkaline and acid, Hemoglobin, A1c, Chol-HDL,…). It was purchased recently from a hospital in the Netherlands.
The automated electrophoresis steps are performed in sequence : sample application, migration, incubation, staining, destaining and drying. The manual steps include handling the samples and gels, and setting up the instrument for operation. Sample application is performed in a particularly ingenious and original way. The excellent quality of the applications allows the protein fractions to resolve into sharp and distinct bands. Migration parameters are regulated in constant current, constant voltage, constant power or volts x hour. Staining, destaining and drying steps are performed in a leak-proof compartment with a capacity of up to four different reagents.
The Sebia Hydrasys control panel is connected to an L.C.D. screen which can display menus, the working stages of each module and the progress of the ongoing procedural step. In addition, it displays messages, incidents and errors. The system should be used only with the specifically designed Hydragel kits, gels and reagents manufactured and tested by Sebia.
