AU2700 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer

Creating more efficiency for high volume laboratories, the AU2700 automates chemistry testing and provides extended walk away time.

This high-speed analyzer delivers true random access testing with up to 1600 photometric test results per hour (up to 2133 results with electrolytes) and up to 51 tests on-board. Consolidate with Beckman Coulter's 125 test menu, including chemistries, special chemistries, urine chemistry, specific proteins, esoteric chemistries and tests for therapeutic drug monitoring, drugs-of-abuse, and thyroid function.


With the newest Beckman Coulter advances to increase ease of use, the AU2700 delivers efficiency to meet real world lab needs.-
