General

Exceptionally easy, fully automated system requires no special operating skills:

  • 100 μl whole blood, serum or plasma

  • Full-colour touch screen with intuitive user interface

  • Walk-away operation

  • Bar-coded reagent disc self-calibrates with every test run
  • Built-in intelligent Quality Control system (iQC™) eliminates daily liquid control testing
  • Delivers multi-analyte panels including lipids, liver enzymes, electrolytes and more
  • Results are provided in a self-adhesive hard copy report or can be quickly transferred to a data management system, enabling physicians to rapidly obtain critical diagnostic information at the point-of-care

Exceptionally accurate, advanced technology ensures reliable results:

  • Accuracy and precision comparable to large and expensive laboratory analysers
  • Built-in iQC™ complies with worldwide proficiency standard requirements (e.g Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) standard of FDA
  • iQC™ system performs continuous quality control checks on every run
  • Every self-contained reagent disc is bar-coded for automatic self-calibration
