Fully automated clinical chemistry analyser


EKF Diagnostics announces the international launch of the Altair 240 clinical chemistry analyzer which happened at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry’s (AACC) Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo in Atlanta. This new bench-top platform represents EKF Diagnostics’ first fully integrated chemistry system designed for the global market. EKF also highlighted the latest additions to its range of Stanbio liquid-stable, LiquiColor and Liqui-UV clinical chemistry reagents.



The new Altair 240 clinical chemistry analyzer fulfills an international market need for a fully automated bench-top platform supported by the reliable and respected Stanbio Chemistry reagent menu. The fully automated system with LIS bi-directional connectivity is capable of performing up to 480 tests per hour. In addition to being supported by EKF’s broad menu of Stanbio ready-to-use, bar coded, liquid reagents for routine and special chemistries, the Altair 240 also provides the flexibility to configure open channel applications for many esoteric assays.



EKF will expand the international presence of its clinical chemistry range with the Altair 240, as its customers have long asked for a cost-effective platform designed with Stanbio Chemistry products in mind. Built on 54 years of clinical chemistry expertise, this new platform enables EKF to offer a cost-effective solution, as either a main or back-up analyzer, to improve productivity in both the hospital and physician office laboratory environments.



“We listened to the needs of our customers and designed the Altair 240 to be easy to learn, operate and maintain,” said Albert Blanco, Business Unit Director for EKF’s Central Laboratory Division. “Because it runs on Windows 7, operators can easily navigate its intuitive, touch screen menu. Features such as the capability to use bar coded, primary sample tubes, auto-rerun, auto-dilution and STAT interruption, all function to maximize the system’s overall efficiency.”
