With our high-throughput Vanadis® NIPT solution, we’re taking all the complexity out of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) testing, making it accessible to more women – and more cost-effective for your laboratory. This breakthrough technology eliminates PCR amplification and gene sequencing, and it’s so easy to use that one laboratory technician can handle 2000 to 20 000 samples per year. Walkaway automation streamlines the process from primary tube to final results. Because the Vanadis system is an easy to use, non-NGS and non-PCR based method, any laboratory can use it.
Streamlined workflow from primary tube to final result
The Vanadis Extract platform automatically performs plasma separation and cfDNA extraction and purification.
Thousands of targeted cfDNA fragments are specifically converted to DNA circles. Circles are converted to fluorescent DNA molecules and labeled with chromosome-specific fluorophores. The labeled fluorescent DNA molecules are deposited to a microfilter plate.
The fluorescent DNA molecules are deposited on the Vanadis View® plate and counted with the Vanadis View® instrument. With image analysis algorithms, the fluorescent DNA molecules are counted for each sample.
The ratio between the number of each chromosome-specific fluorescent DNA molecules is transferred for risk calculation to the LifeCycle™ Prenatal Screening Software, to calculate the likelihood of a trisomy.
Walkaway automation for greater efficiency
With Vanadis technology, all the critical steps are automated, starting with pipetting steps to reduce manual errors. Plasma volumes are monitored by camera to avoid contamination by the buffy coat, and samples and reagents are barcoded for complete tracking throughout the workflow.
No PCR, No sequencing
Vanadis is the only NIPT screening platform to enable targeted cfDNA analysis without PCR, instead directly capturing target fragments and labeling them for counting. A proprietary nanofilter plate then captures labeled molecules for imaging, eliminating the need for data-intensive steps such as DNA sequencing, microarrays, and microfluidics.
Easy to use. Easy to learn
Walkaway automation minimizes hands-on time and allows for quicker test results, available within 2-3 days.
Requiring only a single technician to run up to 20 000 samples per year, Vanadis empowers laboratories under ever-increasing workloads.
Designed to deliver high-precision measurements to improve the detection and false positive rates while minimizing the no-call rate.
