The system operates at 1200 tests per hour (800 photometric, 1200 with ISE).
The system consolidates testing for routine serum and urine chemistry, STATS,
ISE, TDM, DAT, thyroids, and esoteric tests with an on-board menu of 51items.
The AU600 micro sampling and reagent dispense capabilities enable it to use as
little as 150 uL of reagent per test The micro sampling probe is idea1 for
pediatric samples and can use as little as 100uL of serum for a 20 test panel.
The AU600 can accommodate 5, 7, and 10 mL primary sample tubes with and without
bar codes. Various size sample aliquot tubes and pediatric sample tubes can
also be used. The AU600 is a sample rack based system allowing for 150 sample
to be loaded at one time. The AU600 independent STAT Processing Module can
accommodate the same sample tubes mentioned above with and without bar codes.
The STAT Processing Module can accept STAT samples while routine samples are
being processed for real time STAT interrupt. The computer tracks the location
and status of each sample as it is processed.
The instrument offers automatic repeat run with three options for specimen
handling, repeat neat, diluted or concentrated. The automated repeat also
employs true reflex testing for improved turn around time and reduced operating
costs by automatically repeating clinically significant tests associated with
the initial flagged results. The reflex tests and the repeat run parameters
are all user defined providing complete flexibility for repeat testing.
The software employs pop-up windows and user friendly displays. The system
employs reagent bar coding to track and display reagent inventory, on-board
stability, reagent lot number, expiration date, and calibration stability.
Maintenance is minimized and automated. The system uses permanent glass reaction
cuvettes and positive displacement pipetting reagent dispense.
