Atellica Solution, advanced diagnostic analysers now available for sale
Siemens Healthineers announced recently the CE Mark and global commercial availability of its Atellica Solution - flexible, scalable, automation-ready immunoassay and chemistry analysers. The solution is now available across the globe in Europe, the United States, South America and Asia. The Atellica Solution is comprised of sample management, as well as immunoassay and chemistry analysers, and is an excellent fit for mid-and high-volume labs. It delivers unprecedented flexibility to adapt to changing testing needs and space constraints. The solution can combine up to 10 components into more than 300 customizable configurations - including linear, L and U shapes. It can operate as a stand-alone system or connect to Aptio Automation to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary testing solution that could include clinical chemistry, immunoassay, hemostasis, hematology, and plasma protein analysers. Further, with an immunoassay analyser that runs up to 440 tests per hour, the Atellica Solution delivers industry-leading productivity per square meter.
One key feature is the Atellica Magline Transport, the patented bi-directional, magnetic transport technology that is 10 times faster than conventional sample conveyors, and provides innovative and unique sample management capabilities. The transport technology, together with a multi-camera vision system, intelligent sample routing, and automatic quality control (QC) and calibration, give laboratories independent control over every individual sample - from routine to STAT - to deliver rapid, high quality patient results to clinicians. The Atellica Solution simplifies laboratory operations through intelligent sample management. It can process more than 30 different sample container types, including pediatric and tube-top sample cups that can be aspirated from the primary tube. Further, by using the same reagents and consumables across different analyser configurations, laboratories can streamline inventory and deliver consistent patient results no matter where patients are tested. Powering the Atellica Solution is a comprehensive menu of 170 assays, including 10-minute turnaround times for key cardiac, reproductive and thyroid tests, with 50 more assays in the pipeline. The immunoassay analyser features a patent-pending dual incubation ring design, temperature and humidity controls of the reaction environment, powerful magnets for relevant particle separation and robust washing protocols - all of which enable delivery of rapid, high precision results.
