Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Raritan, NJ, presented a number of scientific posters on its assays and displayed six products at its booth at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC).

Ortho’s posters addressed a range of tests for clinical labs, both marketed and under development, including tests for human immunodeficiency virus, Chagas disease, and thyroid function.

“Ortho is focused on expanding its assay portfolio and creating laboratory technology that features full testing automation and optimizes the power of informatics,” says Karen Davis- Fleischer, vice president and head of business fields for the clinical labs menu at Ortho. “We look forward to sharing information on the development of our assays and showcasing our most recent innovations, which help enable our customers to reduce turnaround times and broaden their testing menus.”

Products on display included Ortho’s flagship integrated clinical chemistry and immunodiagnostic systems, and the Nephrocheck test for assessing risk of acute kidney injury. In addition, Ortho highlighted the company’s transfusion medicine instrument, the Ortho Vision Max, which is pending FDA premarket notification (510(k)) clearance.

“Every product and service that Ortho offers reflects our commitment to reimagining what’s possible in labs today,” says Michael Iskra, president of North America commercial operations at Ortho. “Lab professionals are challenged to do more with limited resources and increasing demand. We’re redefining possibilities, offering comprehensive, fully integrated laboratory solutions that enhance the total value of instrument ownership.”

The company also treated booth visitors to a virtual reality lab visualization station. Using the latest 3D technology, visitors worked with the company’s design team to custom build their own dream laboratories. They then toured the creations via virtual reality, learning how proprietary Ortho technology allows labs to grow and change as their needs do.
