Immunoassay Analyzer Pointcare® iM1
Immunoassay analyzer detects and quantifies specific analytes in blood or body fluids by utilizing immunoassay methodologies. Pointcare® iM1 is in-vitro diagnostic device based on time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay (TRFIA), Pointcare® iM1 provides quantitative in-vitro determination of clinical immunoassay analytes in whole blood, plasma,serum, stool, optic or oral conjunctival epithelial cells. Pointcare® iM1 is a compact, easy-to-use diagnostic immuno-analyzer to measure the presence of various biomarkers for inflammation, infectious diseases, fertility, Endocrine and alimentary canal diseases.

MNCHIP applies time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay (TRFIA), which offers many advantages: (1) simple operation, fast analysis, and less time consuming; (2) practicality for on-site use; (3) high accuracy; and (4) good reproducibility and stability.
TRFIA labels the lanthanide-chelate-embedded microbeads with antibodies or protein, which are captured in the detection area by the principle of chromatography.
Lanthanide chelates exhibit highly desirable fluorescence characteristics: (1) long fluorescence lifetime (Eu3+ has a lifetime on the order of millisecond, which is several orders of magnitude longer than that of the non-specific background autofluorescence) ; (2) wide excitation spectrum and narrow and sharp emission spectrum; and (3) a large Stokes shift (200–300 nm) , with improved spatial resolution.
