Advanced chemistry analyzers help laboratories handle increased testing demands in the quick turnaround time required to meet current patient care needs. An ideal solution for mid- to high-volume chemistry analyses, Siemens’ ADVIA 1800 chemistry analyzer pushes the limit of productivity of the core lab and helps today’s laboratories meet their turnaround-time (TAT) goals.
With a throughput of 1,800 tests per hour and 200 basic metabolic panels, the system has the capacity to keep pace with workload peaks. Its extensive menu allows integration of testing for clinical chemistry, drugs-of-abuse, therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM), and specific proteins like Cystatin C and CardioPhase® hsCRP. With intuitive new software and capabilities, the system is designed to deliver power and speed to meet the most demanding performance needs.
This advanced chemistry analysis platform comes with a large onboard reagent capacity and optional concentrated reagents which reduce interruptions. It requires only minimal maintenance.
- Redundant sample loading for built-in backup and easy handling of non-routine samples
- Automatic Sample Retain technology provides the ability to perform reruns and dilutions without the need to retrieve primary tubes
- Robust hardware and simplified software design with automatic calibration validation and tracking
- High-resolution touch screen delivers push-button operation
- Sample integrity checking, including serum indices reporting, short sample flagging and clot detection, reduces manual intervention
Laboratory assays that can be performed on the ADVIA 1800 include Hemoglobin A1c and Microalbumin for Diabetes, Acetaminophen, Amphetamines and Barbiturates for Drugs of Abuse and Antistreptolysin O, Carbamazepine and Digoxin for Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM) and Apolipoprotein A1 for Specific Proteins.
