The indirect immunofluorescent (IIF) test has long been the gold standard for determination of autoantibodies. The innovative Image Navigator® is a solution that eliminates the usual tedious labor of the IIF test, while still allowing the laboratory professional to control the interpretation and reporting of these tests. The Image Navigator® is an automated microscope that captures images of autoantibody IIF slides; separates the images into controls, possible positives, possible negatives, and titers; and presents these images to the laboratory professional on separate review screens for easy and quick confirmation and reporting. The Image Navigator® system has been shown to significantly improve accuracy and reproducibility in reading of IIF assays. The system includes a high quality fluorescent microscope, so samples can be observed by the conventional method as well as in the automated format.
