THE VISIBLE DIFFERENCE
AU5400 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer
by Olympus Diagnostics
Designed for the high volume laboratory
The Olympus AU5400 automates and consolidates chemistry-immuno testing with up to 147 on-board chemistries and performs up to 6,600 tests per hour. The AU5400 is designed to upgrade and replace Olympus AU5200 analyzers used in the majority of large commercial laboratories.
To meet the varying workload demands of high-volume laboratories, the AU5400 system is available in multiple module configurations - the two-module AU5421 and the three-module AU5431. The system incorporates a fully integrated track system to intelligently route samples to the high-speed processing modules for simultaneous test processing.
A fully automated system, the Olympus AU5400 is a high-volume performer that increases laboratory productivity. The system requires less maintenance, uses less reagents, and incorporates probe crash prevention and sample clot detection - safety features not currently available on other high-volume analyzers.
Unlike other high-volume modular models, the AU5400 is a discrete, random access system, which utilizes precision reagent pipetting to eliminate wasteful reagent priming. Its multi-module design permits up to 147 on-board chemistries to offer laboratories a single, high-speed platform to perform the majority of their general and special chemistries. Olympus has a broad 122-test menu featuring general chemistries, special chemistries, urine chemistries, TDMs, DATs and thyroid assays. Olympus convenient, bar-coded reagents are stable liquid and ready-to-use. They are manufactured by Olympus Diagnostica, an ISO 9001 registered site.Easy-to-use, the AU5400 uses flexible Microsoft Windows NT® software to simplify its operation. Additionally, operator training and system maintenance are easily accomplished through an on-line operator's manual, context-sensitive HELP functions and computer-generated video clips. Technical support is modem-linked for a virtual on-site engineer around the clock. CLIA, NCCLS, and CAP compliance is supported by software documentation QC features.
