BIOCHEMISTRY AND IMMUNOASSAY

      1. VITROS® 5600 Integrated System for Chemistry & Immuno diagnostics by Ortho Clinical Diagnostics .

A high –Capacity system that integrates and provides a comprehensive Clinical Chemistry and Immuno Assay testing menu on one platform using innovative Sample Centered Processing. Designed to help efficiently consolidate critical testing to deliver high quality and timely results to the physicians and patients.

 

     2. ARCHITECT i2000SR - Immunoassay System by  ABOOTT .

This equipment  is built on the concept of intelligent integration. Intelligent Integration is derived from four fundamental principles of Modularity, Flexibility, Scalability, and Commonality. Modularity will offer the ability to combine multiple instruments and technologies into a single consolidated workstation. Flexibility will allow the user to integrate different technologies to lab automation configurations and existing lab information systems. Scalability will customize instrument solutions to meet the user's menu and throughput needs.

Together, these principles will bring the first user-designed diagnostic systems to the laboratory. This system will deliver high quality immunoassays using chemiluminescence detection technology with flexible protocols, commonly referred to as Chemiflex.
