The TruDx® 2000 Imager includes several software modules which together allow users to process tests and seamlessly create reports of the testing results, which can be reported through integrated laboratory information management systems (LIMS) or independently. The primary software module is the application software, which allows user interaction with the instrument. All of the hardware functions of the instrument are controlled by embedded firmware under the command of the application software. A separate parameter file is used by the application software to create assay-specific results and reports – all of which is triggered automatically when the test cartridge is scanned. By keeping these assay-specific parameter files separate from the application, they may be individually validated.
The automated TruSpotTM software, integrated with the imager, locates and segments each individual microarray spot and reports signal-to-noise ratios (SNR). An algorithm is used to analyze and extract data from the image of the 3D gel drop arrays. Summary statistics and quality scores for every gel element on the array is automatically generated. The software is modular, and can incorporate new statistics, diagnostic calculations and plug-in modules on an as-needed basis, regardless of the microarray substrate.
