Fras 4 Evolvo
FRAS 4 Evolvo is a new integrated analytical system consisting of a dedicated photometer with an incorporated centrifuge, designed to allow the global assessment of oxidative stress, by means of two tests, i. e. d-ROMs test and BAP test, on a small sample of capillary blood, through finger-pick on a finger-tip. The initials FRAS means Free Radical Analytical System, i. e. system for the analytical study of free radicals.
The most innovative technological feature of FRAS 4 Evolvo is the integration of centrifuge in the analytical module. This system enables the operator to perform both, the centrifugation and the photometric analysis. Furthermore, the centrifuge is termostated.
FRAS 4 Evolvo, moreover, allows one to carry out the assessment of the pro-oxidant component (by means of d-ROMs test) and the evaluation of the antioxidant barrier (by means of BAP test) involved in oxidative stress.
Although the procedures of the two tests are very simple, FRAS 4 Evolvo possesses a self-instructing display that provides not only the photometer and centrifuge temperatures but also multilingual operating messages. All these functions are controlled by a particular software that manages the whole instrumentation. Moreover, this software can be updated by means of a personal computer.
