Capillarys 3 Tera

Capillarys 3 Tera

CAPILLARYS 3 is much more than a new instrument. It is a unique and exclusive automation program, designed to address the current and future needs of all laboratories.


CAPILLARYS 3 TERA, offers the enhanced throughput of a 12 capillaries system, lateral access for a tube loader or a workcell configuration.

Several CAPILLARYS 3 TERA configurations are offered.

The stand alone instrument can be further upgraded with:

  • A high capacity tubes loader
  • A workcell configuration, with up to 3 instruments. CAPILLARYS 3 TERA MC is able to process either very high volumes of the same test, or batches of different tests, providing full walk-away flexibility.
  • Another option of CAPILLARYS 3 TERA is the analytical track compatibility, with CAPILLARYS 3 TERA TLA.

The CAPILLARYS 3 program offers a broad assay menu: Serum Proteins Electrophoresis (SPE), Serum Immunotyping, Hb A1c (venous blood), Hemoglobin electrophoresis (adult blood)

Coming soon: Hb A1c (capillary blood) and CDT/CDTIFCC

In the future: Hemoglobin electrophoresis (newborn on dried blood spot), Urine Proteins Electrophoresis (UPE) and Urine Immunotyping

The CAPILLARYS 3 program was developed to fulfill all laboratories’ requirements in total confidence in a fast-changing environment.
