Posted on 31 Jan 2019
Randox Laboratories (Crumlin, UK) participated in MedLab Middle East 2019 held in Dubai, UAE, from February 4-7, 2019, where it offered live product demonstrations of the Evidence MultiSTAT automated benchtop immunoassay analyzer.

The Evidence MultiSTAT simultaneously detects up to 21 classical, prescription and synthetic drugs from a single patient sample. Utilizing revolutionary Biochip Array Technology, it uses a chemiluminescence reaction as a measuring principle to ensure consistently accurate results. Moving away from traditional single analyte assays, Biochip Array Technology boasts of cutting-edge multiplex testing capabilities providing rapid and accurate drug detection from a single sample. Biochip Array Technology has a proven high standard of accurate test results with CVs typically <10% with a 98% agreement with confirmatory methods.

Based on ELISA principles, the biochip is a solid-state device with discrete test sites onto which antibodies specific to different drug compounds are immobilized and stabilized. Competitive chemiluminescent immunoassays are then employed, offering a highly sensitive screen. Testing panels are available for blood and urine samples to accommodate various testing requirements, with a minimal 200ul sample volume required, ensuring more sample is available for confirmatory testing.

Randox has the world’s largest toxicology test menu, with the ability to detect over 500 drugs and drug metabolites. Randox also has the world’s most advanced drug screening test menu spanning a wide range of classical, prescription and synthetic drugs of abuse. The Evidence Multistat provides a complete drug profile in one simple process, reducing the amount of time and labor spent on individual tests. The reliability and accuracy of results also reduces the financial burden of re-testing. With multiple results obtained in less than 20 minutes, the Evidence MultiSTAT is an ideal analyzer for emergency drugs of abuse screening.
