The Stat Fax 4500 chemistry analyzer from Awareness Technology® is an advanced automated system that meets the requirements of modern laboratories. It has a compact, economical design with touch screen interface, on-board curve-fitting software, and built-in printer. It can perform on board curve fitting calculations with step-by-step user prompting and offers single point calibration by standard or factor as well as multipoint calibration.
However, what really sets this chemistry analyzer apart is its superb biochromatic optics, made possible with the use of Ion Assisted Deposition (IAD) filters. The quality of the filters is crucial to achieve photometric accuracy for accurate and consistent test results.
IAD technology offers the solution to narrow-band interference filters which can result in instability and wear and tear due to humidity, aging, and temperature changes, ultimately resulting in low peak transmittance and leakage. In fact, soft-coated filters can cause film porosity, an issue that the advanced IAD coating process resolves. IAD filters are vastly superior and highly durable, reducing service costs and the downtime which would be needed for filter replacement.
Quality and value are assured with the Stat Fax® readers that use IAD filters. Though more expensive than lower quality filters, the advantages in terms of dependability and overall performance is far greater. The standard model of the Stat Fax 4500 features six filters – 340, 405, 505, 545, 580, and 630nm. Alternate filters are also available up to 700nm.
Leading laboratory equipment stores offer this standalone chemistry analyzer at a price much lower than the original.
