Automated ESR testing instrument
CUBE 30 Touch is an automated instrument for high-volume erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) testing in EDTA tubes. Compatible with standard 4.0 mL K2EDTA tubes, the instrument produces ESR results directly from EDTA tubes without consuming patient sample. Its internal mixing function automatically prepares up to 30 samples per batch. Random access capability enables the user to add samples as space allows. The instrument automatically prints and transmits results to the laboratory information system (LIS). Results are available in under 25 minutes and show >94% correlation to Modified Westergren Method. An internal barcode scanner ensures positive patient ID. Patient and QC data are archived and a USB port and Bluetooth connector allows connection to PC, tablet and smartphone. No reagents are needed and there is no exposure to patient sample. Utilizing plastic tubes, the instrument does not produce any liquid waste, thus saving costs for waste disposal.
