Make Effective, Timely Decisions

Bio-Rad assays are designed for quick time-to-results, because when invasive fungal infections spread, time matters for patients.

Be Confident

Galactomannan and mannan biomarkers are recommended in international guidelines for the detection of invasive aspergillosis and invasive candidiasis, respectively.

Join the Leaders

We've expanded our mycology product portfolio and expertise! Today, our Platelia Aspergillus Ag assay is broadly used by mycology experts around the world.

Fungal Infection Serological Assays


Platelia Aspergillus Ag Assay

Screen, Diagnose, and Monitor High-Risk Patients

The Platelia Aspergillus Ag assay is a unique, high-performance tool for Galactomannan antigen detection enabling physicians to screen, monitor, and diagnose invasive aspergillosis and rapidly provide the antifungal treatment patients need.

  • Galactomannan antigen detection (Platelia Aspergillus Ag) is among the mycological criteria defined by the EORTC/MSG Consensus Group
  • Monitors the efficacy of antifungal treatment for invasive aspergillosis in high-risk patients
  • Non-invasive procedure performed in serum allows for twice-weekly screening of high-risk patients

Platelia Aspergillus IgG Assay

High Performance Anti-Aspergillus IgG Detection

The Platelia Aspergillus IgG assay uses highly purified recombinant Aspergillus antigen in a standardized EIA procedure.

  • Designed for the detection of anti-Aspergillus antibodies in immunocompetent patients suffering from various forms of chronic aspergillosis
  • Excellent sensitivity and specificity

EVOLIS Systems

The EVOLIS Systems are designed for...

  • Convenience: intuitive software
  • Workflow Optimization: walkaway system for up to 7 microplates processed simultaneously
  • Safety: positive identification of samples and reagents and triple-detection technology including barometric, capacitive, and colorimetric
  • Traceability
    • Bidirectional interfacing with LIS
    • Comprehensive event log from sample loading to result release

The EVOLIS Advantages for processing mycology assays

Short Time-to-Result

Results obtained in 3 hours (vs. several days with traditional fungal tests)

Optimal Workflow

Platelia Aspergillus Ag, Platelia Aspergillus IgG, Platelia Candida Ag Plus and Platelia Candida Ab Plus assays can be processed in parallel during the same run.

Secured Process

Take advantage of all the outstanding security and traceability features (e.g. positive identification of samples and reagents, bidirectional interfacing with LIS, etc.) provided by the EVOLIS and EVOLIS Twin Plus systems.
