EUROIMMUN CSF Software is designed for the automated calculation of CSF/serum quotients (CSQalb., CSQtotal IgA/G/M, CSQpath.-spec., CSQlim. and CSQrel. or antibody index AI). The CSQrel. allows a statement to be made on intrathecal pathogen-specific antibody synthesis.
The albumin and antibody concentrations measured by means of e.g. a nephelometer and EUROIMMUN Analyzer or EUROLabWorkstation ELISA can be transferred online into the EUROIMMUN CSF Software so that timeconsuming and error-prone manual data transfer is no longer required. Manual input of the values or quotients into the software is also possible. For manual transfer a photometer can be connected.
Optionally, a storable standard curve can be used. In this case only a recalibrator needs to be included in the test run rather than 4 to 6 calibrators. This saves reaction wells on the ELISA plate. The recalibration, validity check and calculation of the antibody concentration are fully automated in the EUROIMMUN CSF Software. For internal quality control, the values of the recalibrator or the serum/CSF controls from different test runs for one lot are clearly presented and administered (Levey-Jennings diagram).
In the detailed patient view, all findings and a suggested end result are shown. The CSF/serum quotients CSQalb. and CSQtotal IgA/G/M are additionally displayed graphically in quotient diagrams according to Reiber and Lange and can be interpreted using the legend. A variety of configurations allows for individual adjustment of the used units and report texts.
