Title (EN) DEVICE FOR READING AN IVD ASSAY
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE LECTURE D'UN DOSAGE IVD
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments generally relate to a system for reading fluorescent-labelled diagnostic assays for in-vitro diagnostic applications. The system comprises a receiving member adapted to receive a fluorescent-labelled diagnostic assay cartridge carrying a fluorescent-labelled diagnostic assay; at least one excitation module configured to illuminate the diagnostic assay, when the diagnostic assay cartridge is placed in the receiving member; a camera module for capturing an image of the illuminated diagnostic assay placed in the receiving member; a processor for receiving the captured image from the camera module and determining whether or not a target analyte was present in the diagnostic assay captured by the camera module; and memory storing firmware, the firmware including a brightness compensation module configured to adjust the intensity of an image of a diagnostic cartridge captured by the camera module, in order to emulate a uniform field of illumination over the diagnostic cartridge. The brightness compensation module is configured to adjust the intensity of the captured image based on an illumination compensation look-up table.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de la présente invention concernent d'une manière générale un système permettant de lire des dosages de diagnostic à marquage fluorescent pour des applications de diagnostic in vitro. Le système comprend un élément de réception conçu pour recevoir une cartouche de dosage de diagnostic à marquage fluorescent portant un dosage de diagnostic à marquage fluorescent ; au moins un module d'excitation conçu pour éclairer le dosage de diagnostic, lorsque la cartouche de dosage de diagnostic est placée dans l'élément de réception ; un module d'appareil photo pour capturer une image du dosage de diagnostic éclairé placé dans l'élément de réception ; un processeur pour recevoir l'image capturée du module d'appareil photo et déterminer si un analyte cible était ou non présent dans le dosage de diagnostic capturé par le module d'appareil photo ; et un micrologiciel de stockage mémoire, le micrologiciel comprenant un module de compensation de luminosité conçu pour ajuster l'intensité d'une image d'une cartouche de diagnostic capturée par le module d'appareil photo, de manière à émuler un champ d'éclairage uniforme sur la cartouche de diagnostic. Le module de compensation de luminosité est conçu pour ajuster l'intensité de l'image capturée sur la base d'une table de consultation de compensation d'éclairage.
