Abbott unveils new immunochemistry analyser to Architect family

Abbott Laboratories Medical Diagnostics Products : 15 April, 2008  (New Product)
Abbott has introduced the Architect i1000SR immunochemistry analyser to expand the company’s Architect family of diagnostics instrument systems for clinical laboratories.
The instrument is designed for labs that typically perform less than 200 immunoassay tests per day and addresses many of the workflow challenges common in today's laboratories.

With the increased demand for diagnostic testing, laboratories, both large and small, need to process tests as quickly and efficiently as possible. By providing continuous access to reagents and samples while the instrument is running, the Architect i1000SR enhances laboratory productivity. Additionally, a wide test menu, user-friendly software and low maintenance make it easy to train new laboratory personnel on the instrument's operation.

'Because time and ease of use are so critical in the testing environment, Abbott worked extensively with customers very early in the development phase and designed an instrument that could help smaller labs overcome the same productivity obstacles faced by larger labs,' said Cass Grandone, divisional vice president, Systems Development, Abbott Diagnostics. 'The Architect i1000SR analyser is ideal for facilities running less than 200 tests per day and offers productivity benefits, such as highly efficient sample processing, usually reserved for larger testing facilities. Since Architect utilises common reagents, consumables and software user interfaces, larger laboratories may be interested in using the instrument as a back-up system to the i2000SR.'

The Architect i1000SR analyser can process up to 100 tests per hour. The instrument accommodates 65 patient samples and has the capability to prioritise emergency test results and turn them around in less than 16 minutes.

Similar to Architect ci8200 and ci16200, the analyzer is part of the Architect family, with important features including:

- True Family Commonality. Key components, including reagents, can be shared across Architect instruments and multiple testing sites for effective and efficient patient care.

- Enhanced Assay and System Dynamics. Architect instruments offer advanced technology, which means laboratories, physicians and, ultimately, patients can be confident in the accuracy of test results.

- Integration without Compromise. The Architect family combines immunoassay and clinical chemistry technologies without jeopardising key performance, including turnaround time or accuracy of results.

Abbott recently introduced three other instruments in the Architect family: the Architect c16000 clinical chemistry analyser, the Architect ci16200, an integrated immunoassay and clinical chemistry analyser, and the Architect i4000SR analyser for high volume immunoassay testing.
