AU2700 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer

by Olympus Diagnostics

Designed for the high volume laboratory

Consolidated platform with
proven technology and compatible standardization.

This powerful performer offers you the broadest 122-test menu in the market today, including Emit® brand applications, and the benefits from a standardized family.


Convenient liquid, bar-coded
OSR bar-coded
reagents come ready-to-use and
provide automatic on-board
inventory management, random
placement, automatic bottle
changeover and automatic calibration and QC.

Increased walkaway with
greater productivity.

The highly automated 300
sample loading capacity and
continuous feed mean less
interruptions. Hands-on time is
eliminated with automated
repeat testing, reflex testing, and
automated sample pre-dilution.
System features include clot
detection and probe crash

Simplified operation and
training with Windows NT

Just click on the start icon for routine sample analysis – the userfriendly Windows NT platform is easy. There’s on-line software for CLIA, NCCLS, and CAP
compliance, along with HELP
functions to move you to the
relevant topic in the on-line
Operator’s Manual. A modem
link also keeps you in touch with
Olympus experts.

The Olympus AU2700 provides proven technology for the demanding environment of the high volume laboratory. Designed to meet your needs as a primary analyzer with a broad 122-test menu, the AU2700
features rapid STAT turnaround, true random access testing, and pediatric sampling.


This high speed analyzer can process general, urine, CSF and STAT
chemistries, serum proteins, thyroid assays, therapeutic drugs and drugs of abuse. Compatible standardization between Olympus models include identical userinterfaces, standardized results and reference ranges and the same reagents, consumables and parts for the lowest cost per reportable in the healthcare market today. The AU2700 provides flexible cost-effective solutions for busy laboratories.
