Manufactured by Olympus, the Olympus AU400 is a premium quality chemistry analyzer designed to meet the needs of hospitals and core and commercial medical laboratories. Its extensive test menu includes chemistry, urine chemistry, specific proteins, esoteric chemistries and tests for therapeutic drug monitoring, drugs-of-abuse, and thyroid function. With fast and reliable results, increased productivity and decreased operating costs, this chemistry system helps optimize lab operations.
Fully automated for routine, STAT, urine and homogeneous immunoassays, the Olympus AU400 chemistry analyzer offers a throughput of 400 photometric tests/hour and maximum of 800 tests with ISE. Other features include
- Two permanent probes – a sample probe and a reagent probe
- Refrigerated reagent chamber with 72 reagent bottles
- Reduced reaction volume – down to 150 μl
- Bar-coded ready-to-use reagents
- Hard disk storage capacity for data from 10,000 patients
- Spot photometry technology to generate accurate data
- A microprocessor or software package to calculate the values
- Probe tip speed control that prevent liquid splashing
It also comes with safety features such as clot detection and crash prevention for the sample and reagent dispenser and a triple washing station to eliminate contamination. The AU400 uses the same reagents and user interface as larger systems. Many laboratories use CEDIA drug of abuse testing reagents and DRI multi-level controls from Thermo Scientific for this Olympus chemistry analyzer.
Suited for use in single or multiple locations, the analyzer also features a standardization design incorporated in all the Olympus AU series product line of chemistry immunosystems. This design helps maximize productivity and minimize operating costs.
Reliable lab equipment suppliers in NY offer the Olympus AU400 analyzer recertified, which is an economical alternative to a costly new model. Professional vendors offer the refurbished device with a 90-day part warranty as well as for lease in a package includes delivery, installation, training, and reagent credit.
