The development of integrated systems has greatly improved the analytical phase of clinical laboratory testing. The integration of automated chemistry analyzers and immunoassay systems has made it possible to do both chemistry testing and immunoassays using a single system, thereby reducing workload in clinical laboratories. The Dimension® EXL™ 200 Integrated Chemistry and Immunoassay System by Siemens is an ideal option for both low-volume and STAT laboratories. Enabling faster and more accurate analysis, it contributes to better patient care.
This system uses patented LOCI® advanced chemiluminescent technology to process immunoassay tests more quickly, while increasing the reliability and sensitivity of test results. Its automated productivity-enhancing features enable trained operators to run any test, any time. Chemistry and immunoassay integration allows simultaneous processing to maximize workflow efficiency. By integrating proven technologies on a single platform, this system offers benefits such as impressive throughput and productivity, easy processing, and less maintenance.
Using LOCI® advanced chemiluminescence technology, low-volume customers can access sensitive IA testing on a proven integrated platform. Features of the Dimension EXL 200 system include:
- Excellent STAT testing capability
- No manual reagent preparation or sample pretreatment
- Helpful alert system
- Automating control
- Calibration procedures
- Short reaction times, no washing or separation steps
- Common reagent area and packaging
- User-defined serum index (HIL) testing
- Plasma qualified assays
The comprehensive menu allows the user to view the parameters of whole disease states from a single primary tube. The device performs up to 440 photometric chemistry tests per hour and 187 IMT tests per hour on serum, plasma, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. It can perform up to 167 heterogeneous immunoassay tests an hour.
