This second-generation Access immunoassay system was designed to help labs become more efficient, standardized and cost-effective. The automated, random-access Access 2 system, intended for low- to high-volume laboratories, helps automate manual tasks and streamlines workflow. It offers sample handling with barcoded primary and aliquot tubes as well as multiple rack-load capability.
The 36-test menu includes assays for cardiac, cancer, anemia, thyroid, fertility and infectious disease. The Access 2 incorporates built-in networking technology which allows test request, patient result and test kit supply information to be shared among multiple Access 2 instruments.
In a networked configuration, up to four Access 2 units can function as a single system with total throughput of up to 400 tests per hour. The systems can connect to an HIS or LIS with a single LIS connection required.
Its built-in operator manual and onboard context-sensitive help functions simplify operation and data management. From any menu screen, users can access help instructions by pressing the touch-screen. Instruction then appear that walk the user through the operating steps.
