Sebia's semi-automated agarose gel electrophoresis systems are designed to automate the many tedious steps involved in traditional electrophoresis and immunofixation testing. The HYDRASYS® and HYDRASYS 2® are compact systems that carry out all phases of electrophoresis — from sample application to migration to incubation to staining, destaining and drying. The walkaway nature of the agarose gel electrophoresis systems provides substantial labor and cost savings to clinical laboratories.

The semi-automated electrophoresis systems are designed for efficiency — two different type gels can be processed simultaneously. Gel processing is performed on the compact electrophoresis systems with a throughput of 162 proteins, 45 hemoglobins or 18 immunofixations in just one hour. Various gel configurations are available to accommodate a wide range of sample volumes; the HYDRASYS and HYDRASYS 2 agarose gel electrophoresis systems adapt to any size and type of workload.

Utilizing patented methodologies for sample and antisera application, assay resolution and sensitivity are greatly enhanced. With the FOCUSING option, the agarose gel electrophoresis systems are also equipped with a high-voltage module allowing for isoelectric focusing (IEF) testing to be performed.
