Advanced capabilities

  • Minimize manual handling with automated sample loading and sorting
  • Simplify measuring with through-the-label sample volume detection
  • Enable fast processing with sorting speeds of 800–1,200 tubes per hour
  • Reduce manual sample preparation errors and ensure faster, more accurate secondary tube preparation with intelligent aliquoting* and tube labeling
  • Experience ease of use with intuitive software
  • Transfer sample to archiving safely and conveniently with recapper technology

Single point of entry

  • Manage sample tubes from entry into the laboratory until archiving
  • Re-sort samples for pending test routing or for storage when samples have volume remaining
  • Sort STATs to separate locations
  • Provide sorting flexibility with up to 24 dynamically configurable rack locations
  • Unload and load instrument-specific racks

Tube inspection unit cap color recognition

  • Validate sample type against test ordered to prevent errors with cap color analysis 
  • Detect the newest generation of coded caps

Volume determination

  • Gain better sample control with automated measurement of each sample’s volume prior to dispensing into aliquot tube or for storage
  • Ascertain whether all aliquots can be created through automated measurement of plasma or serum volume
  • Allow infrared volume detection of up to three layers of labels on the tube with read-through labels

Aliquoting*

  • Process up to 900 total samples per hour
  • Create up to seven aliquots per primary tube
  • Measure filling level accurately through conductive tips with graphite fraction
  • Transfer the proper volume for samples with single or multiple tests
  • Prioritize aliquots to ensure most critical samples are created first, if sample volume is minimal
  • Detect clots and route clotted samples for manual processing

Sorting to sample racks

  • Sort to generic 50-tube racks or analyzer racks to accommodate transfers to instruments, other laboratory sections or send-out test requirements through an open system architecture
  • Create up to 150 sorting locations by subdividing 1,200-sample capacity and up to 24 generic racks
  • Freely define and dynamically configure drawers; select the standard 50-position rack or instrument-specific racks
  • Re-sort samples from personality racks after analysis, either to next analyzer or sample storage; determine routing by duration or user-defined destination
