The TruDx2000 Imager is Akonni’s proprietary microarray imager, based on technology that was developed in-house. It consists of a high-intensity green light emitting diode (LED), custom optics, and CCD camera. The TruDx2000 Imager captures an image of the 3D gel drop array through a transparent window of an intact IMMC. The TruDx2000 Imager includes automated analysis software that captures and analyzes an image of the 3D Gel Drop Array to determine the presence or absence of specific molecular targets. The TruDx2000 Imager includes a barcode reader to link the sample ID number to the IMMC used for the test. When the barcode of the IMMC is scanned, test-specific data populates the test report, links the IMMC to the sample, and automatically sets test-specific imager parameters. The TruDx2000 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. See the Analysis and Software Page for more information on software.
The TruDx2000 Imager does not require user calibration and the user does not have the capability to re-calibrate the instrument. All control parameters are protected and verified by an encryption algorithm with a master key. If the protected configuration is modified, the application will be prevented from running. Field service engineers from Akonni or an authorized distributor have access to a software calibration module. Field service engineers can use the calibration software to adjust the calibration setting and save the new settings using encryption. In addition, the instrument is calibrated at the factory against a master test object, and field checks can be performed by Akonni or a distributor with a reference array.
