Clinical Diagnostics

Grifols growing portfolio of specialized clinical diagnostics is designed to detect and monitor treatment of infectious, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative diseases. Our comprehensive autoimmune portfolio of hardware, software, and reagents allow laboratories to simplify routine autoimmune testing, streamline workflow, and reduce hands-on time in the laboratory.

HELIOS – All-in-One IFA Processing and Reading

The HELIOS System is the only FDA cleared instrument to provide all-in-one IFA HEp-2 slide processing and reading on one platform. The HELIOS combines reliable hardware, intuitive software, and quality reagents to transform the autoimmune testing workspace.

The HELIOS is FDA cleared for the following assays:

  • HEp-2 (7 patterns)
  • ANCA Ethanol and Formalin (2 patterns)
  • Crithidia luciliae – nDNA (1 pattern)

 

SQII – True Open Automation

SQII is a compact, flexible, open system ideal for running any ELISA test from autoimmune and infectious disease, to therapeutic drug monitoring. SQII was designed for high efficiency and reliability. The system has only a few moving parts which makes it simple to maintain and easy to use. SQII is adapted to run AESKULISA assays and can simultaneously process two 96-well microplates and up to four different assays using the AESKULISA racks and reagents, or twelve assays using standard racks.

The AESKULISA menu encompasses 155 autoimmune tests including 30 FDA cleared tests:

  • 13 FDA approved tests for Rheumatology
  • 6 FDA approved tests for Thrombosis
  • 9 FDA approved tests for Gastroenterology
  • 2 FDA approved tests for Vasculitis

ID CORE XT2

The new ID CORE XT kit, part of the BLOODchip platform, provides extended blood group genotyping to support improved patient care.

ID CORE XT kit

  • Do more to prevent alloimmunization, even in your frequently transfused patients
  • Enhanced transfusion compatibility in patients with complex antibody profiles
  • Reduce the workload involved in complex antibody workups
  • Develop a more information-rich rare donor database to provide better-matched blood to the patients who need it most

 

Grifols Immunohematology Center & Clinical Laboratory

Grifols Immunohematology Center

Make your laboratory more productive to deliver the best possible patient care. Our CLIA reference laboratory at the Grifols Immunohematology Center provides testing and support for the most challenging cases, saving you time and resources that would otherwise be consumed by complex workups.

The Grifols Immunohematology Center gives you the tools to:

  • Take the best possible precautions to avoid alloimmunization and transfusion reactions based on current scientific knowledge
  • Take the best possible precautions to avoid HDFN (hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn, based on current scientific knowledge) and unnecessary Rh immune globulin administration
  • Strengthen your own expertise

 

Grifols Clinical Laboratory

Our lab offers specialized testing panels for selected medical needs like therapeutic drug monitoring and diagnosis of different genetic diseases like familial hypercholesterolemia (FH).

TDMonitor is a new panel of assays to measure levels of Infliximab (Remicade, Inflectra, Remsima), Adalimumab (Humira) or Vedolizumab (Entyvio) and the anti-drug antibodies. Test results support clinicians, hospitals, and laboratories, globally, in making therapeutic decisions, improving patient therapy strategy and reducing the risk of debilitating disease progression. TDMonitor assays were developed and validated by Grifols CLIA-certified Clinical Laboratory in San Marcos, Texas. Samples may be mailed to the Texas laboratory. Following testing of the sample, a complete report, that includes recommendations with references, is generated and then submitted to the health care provider in 5-7 days.

Grifols offers genetic tests to diagnose familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) by using the advanced sequencing technologies. FH is a condition present in 1 in 250 people worldwide. This genetic condition causes lifelong levels of high cholesterol, which can lead to early coronary artery disease.

Scientific Corner

Grifols is committed to research and development supporting scientific initiatives. Our Scientific Corner is the Grifols knowledge hub to discuss scientific topics in transfusion medicine.

In the Scientific Corner you will have the opportunity to explore all the scientific and educational materials developed by Grifols in the transfusion medicine field and access digital copies of those of interest.

You will also have the opportunity to meet with our medical affairs team members, ready to address your scientific and technical concerns.
