Siemens Healthineers, Tarrytown, NY, has announced receipt of the CE mark and global commercial availability of its Atellica solution, consisting of flexible, scalable, automation-ready immunoassay and chemistry analyzers. The solution is now available across the globe in Asia, Europe, South America, and the United States.
The Atellica solution was developed to provide laboratory diagnostics professionals with control and simplicity so they can spend more time driving outcomes and less time on operations.
“The launch of the game-changing Atellica solution revolutionizes sample management and provides customers with unprecedented flexibility to future-proof their labs,” says Franz Walt, MBA, president of laboratory diagnostics at Siemens Healthineers. “The Atellica solution was developed through extensive market research with laboratory professionals around the world.”
The Atellica solution comprises sample management technologies as well as immunoassay and chemistry analyzers, and is suited for mid- and high-volume labs. It delivers the 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 standalone system or connect to Aptio Automation to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary testing solution that could include clinical chemistry, immunoassay, hemostasis, hematology, and plasma protein analyzers.
One key feature is the Atellica Magline Transport, the patented bidirectional, 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 multicamera 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 analyzer 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, with 50 more assays in the pipeline. The menu features 10-minute turnaround times for key cardiac, reproductive, and thyroid tests. The immunoassay analyzer features a patent-pending dual incubation ring design, temperature and humidity control of the reaction environment, powerful magnets for relevant particle separation, and robust washing protocols.
The Atellica solution is engineered for reliability, offering remote-access monitoring, self-recovery, and many service innovations designed to maximize uptime.
