SIDECAR®

Automated Streaking System Integrated with the Rapid Bacteria Culture
Real walk-away system for rapid bacterial culture and plate streaking of liquid samples.
The system is composed of two units: Alfred 60AST and Sidecar.

Sidecar streaking unit stocks 240 Petri dishes and up to 12 different media.

The streaked dishes are incubated on board at 37°C for the requested analysis time.

ADVANTAGES
  • Light Scattering Technology
  • Quantitative results expressed in CFU/ml
  • Automated susceptibility testing with customised antibiotic panels
  • Real time detection of bacterial growth curves
  • Automatic reagent and sample dispensing
  • Automatic results reading and reporting
  • Refrigerated area at + 4°C for the storage of primary samples, antibiotics and 0.5 McFarland positive samples
  • Storage area for 240 petri dishes and up to 12 different culture media
  • On board Incubator at 37°C for 240 petri dishes
  • Automated labelling system for single plate
  • Calibrated Loop automated sterilisation with heat before and after each streaking procedure
  • Different streaking procedures
  • Single sample management with customised analysis profile: incubation time, analytical protocol, cut-off and solid media selection
  • HEPA filter
  • LIS bidirectional interface and Query Host application

HB&L®

First analyser for Bacterial Culture and the Susceptibility Testing in Human Biological Fluids and Urine
HB&L is the first analyser able to perform bacterial culture, RAA test and susceptibility testing on samples such as urine, sterile or non sterile fluids and other biological samples.
Using the patented technology based on light scattering it is able to detect the presence of bacteria and their drug resistance in a few hours with high sensitivity and specificity.
HB&L monitors the growth phases of bacteria from the inoculum step into specific culture broths providing real time growth curves and quantitative bacterial count results in CFU/ml.
Broth turbidity level is detected by McFarland Monitor and, as the sample reaches the 0.5 McFarland, a visual and audible alert advises that the bacterial culture is ready to be tested for a customized antibiotic panel without awaiting the end of the analysis and avoiding further dilution steps.

The software flexibility of the HB&L allows different tests to be performed simultaneously; each reading unit position is independent from the others and can be set according to sample type, incubation time, test profile, analytical protocol and cut-off.
Two HB&L models are available, one version with 120 sample positions and a 60 position“light” version for reduced workload.

ADVANTAGES
  • Light Scattering Technology
  • Quantitative Results expressed in CFU/ml
  • Susceptibility testing with customized antibiotic panels
  • Real time detection of bacteria growth curves
  • Integrated turbidimeter with Mc Farland Monitor
  • Single sample management with customized analysis
  • Continuous Loading
  • Automatic results reading and reporting
  • LIS bidirectional interface
  • 37°C incubation
  • Dedicated area for lyophilized bacteria reconstitution
  • User-friendly software
  • Customized reports
  • Database for epidemiological studies
  • Connection to Alfred 60AST for increased throughput and productivity

ALFRED 60AST

First Automated System for Bacterial Culture and Susceptibility Testing
Alfred 60AST is the first fully automated system able to perform bacterial culture, RAA and susceptibility testing by automating the whole process of sample inoculation, reading and result transmission.
Using the patented technology based on light scattering it is able to detect the presence of bacteria and their drug resistance in a few hours with high sensitivity and specificity.
Alfred 60AST monitors the growth phases of bacteria from the inoculum step into specific culture broths providing real time growth curves and quantitative bacterial count results in CFU/ml.
Broth turbidity level is detected by the McFarland Monitor and as the sample reaches the 0.5 McFarland it is buffered into the refrigerated area and then tested with a customized antibiotic panel.

ADVANTAGES
  • Light Scattering Technology
  • Quantitative Results expressed in CFU/ml
  • Automated susceptibility testing with customized antibiotic panels
  • Real time detection of bacteria growth curves
  • Integrated turbidimeter with Mc Farland Monitor
  • Single sample management with customized analysis profile settings
  • Refrigerated area at + 4°C for antibiotics and 0.5 Mc Farland positive sample storage
  • Automatic reagents and samples dispensing
  • Primary closed tube sampling with continuous loading capability
  • Automatic results reading and reporting
  • Built in barcode reader for automatic sample identification
  • LIS bidirectional interface and Query Host application
  • 37°C incubation
  • User friendly software
  • Universal rack that accommodate various tube sizes
  • Use of closed tubes (in compliance with the law in force)
  • Customized reports
  • Database for epidemiological studies
  • Connection to HB&L available for increased throughput and productivity

About us

Company details

Alifax was founded in 1988 in Padova by Paolo Galiano as a result of his valuable experience in the laboratory diagnostic market with special reference to hematology, microbiology, serology and autoimmunity fields.

In 1998 after the acquisition of Sire Analytical Systems,Alifax asserts its position in the Italian market
as producer of clinical diagnostic instrumentation for the analysis of Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate and rapid bacterial culture. This is the inception of a rapid and successful development worldwide.

Nowadays Alifax is present with 5 subsidiaries in Russia, Spain, China, UAE and Brazil with a distribution network that includes more than 100 countries around the world.
