ARIES® User Defined Protocol (UDP) Capability

Integrate and simplify user defined protocols with ARIES® Systems using intuitive software and reagents

ARIES® and ARIES® M1 Systems are crafted to increase laboratory efficiency, ensure result accuracy, and fit seamlessly into today’s lean laboratory. ARIES® is an open platform that allows customers to run User Defined Protocols (UDP) and is capable of running both UDP and IVD assays in a single batch, when using a universal assay protocol.

Utilize the full ARIES® tool kit to simplify UDPs, and take advantage of the automation provided with the system.

SYNCT Apps: ARIES® User Defined Protocol

Our UDP tools include:

  • ARIES® and ARIES® M1 Systems—real-time PCR systems designed to improve efficiency, minimize the risk of error, and ensure accuracy
  • SYNCT™ Software—enables electronic reporting of results, remote monitoring of test progress, and bidirectional LIS connectivity for processing orders
  • ARIES® UDP App—a SYNCT™ application that can be installed to enable the creation of assay protocol files for ASR primers
  • ARIES® Extraction Kit—a cassette designed for the universal extraction of both DNA and RNA targets that runs on ARIES® Systems, and includes Sample Processing Control (SPC)
  • Reagents—ARIES® MultiCode® Ready Mixes and Primers, and Exo+ Ready Mix


The ARIES® UDP App is an application that can be installed on SYNCT™ Software, allowing customers to create User Defined Protocols for running ASR or user defined primers.

The workflow to create customized assay protocol files is easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Define targets—Define targets on any of the 1-6 channels, including Sample Processing Controls (SPC).
  2. Set thermal cycling—Create new cycling parameters or use the default Luminex universal profile to batch with other Luminex assays.
  3. Set call parameters—Gather data to graphically set Ct and Tm ranges used in call determination.
  4. Save and run—Save the new assay protocol file, and then export the file to either ARIES® instrument to begin running LDTs.

ARIES® Extraction Kit

The ARIES® Extraction Kit enables users to take advantage of automation provided by ARIES® Systems.

Designed for nucleic acid extraction and purification, the ARIES® Extraction Kit offers:

  • Universal extraction of both DNA and RNA targets with a single cassette from a variety of sample types
  • Internal sample processing controls to verify sample lysis, nucleic acid extraction, and proper system and reagent performance
  • Walkaway processing, once the specimen is added to the sample chamber
