Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics Announces World-Wide Availability of the ADVIA 1800 Chemistry System
Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics (www.usa.siemens.com/medical ) today announced the availability of the ADVIA 1800 chemistry system, the latest addition to their ADVIA chemistry line of advanced chemistry analyzers. The ADVIA 1800 features an intuitive software interface and advanced chemistry testing capabilities to deliver optimized performance and reliable results.
“The ADVIA 1800 is the right move for high volume labs looking for automation, peak productivity, and total system reliability,” said Joe Bernardo, senior vice president, Central Laboratory Testing, Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics. “The ADVIA 1800 delivers dependable test results efficiently and cost effectively.”
This newest addition to the ADVIA line of chemistry analyzers brings significant reliability and ease of use to high volume chemistry labs. Siemens has retained the key features of the ADVIA chemistry line such as Automatic Sample Retain and high photometric test speed and added even more productivity benefits, including faster and more reliable ISE test module and easy sample and reagent loading.
The ADVIA 1800 incorporates easy automation connectivity to the ADVIA WorkCell or ADVIA LabCell Network Solutions without requiring additional expensive interface hardware. With point-in-space aspiration, connection to a track or rack handler can be accomplished without robotics or special hardware. Direct sampling prevents detaining tubes at the analyzer and reduces aliquoting. Redundant sample loading is included for built-in backup and easy handling of non-routine samples.
The ADVIA 1800 reflects Siemens continuing commitment to the clinical chemistry area. Capable of conducting up to 1800 tests per hour, or 200 Basic Metabolic panels per hour, the ADVIA 1800 keeps pace with peak workflow demands. The system’s Automatic Sample Retain technology provides the ability to perform reruns and dilutions without the need to retrieve a primary tube.
ADVIA 1800 users will appreciate that the system is designed for total system reliability. It features robust hardware with a simplified software interface and easy-to-use touch screen. Sample integrity checking, microvolume sampling, and short sample and clot detection, all reduce the need for manual intervention and facilitate testing routine and low-volume samples. New advances in reagent onboard stability, calibration frequency, interference reduction and linearity expansion ensure consistent, reliable results.
Whether with automation or stand-alone, the system works in concert with Siemens immunoassay systems to offer productivity gains and comprehensive menu for the core laboratory. With a testing throughput that is complementary to the ADVIA Centaur XP, laboratories have a good solution to keep up with their workflow needs.
