August 2, 2007 — Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics announced the availability of the ADVIA 1800 chemistry system, which features an intuitive software interface and advanced chemistry testing capabilities to deliver optimized performance and reliable results, according to manufacturer.
This newest addition to the ADVIA line of chemistry analyzers reportedly brings 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.
