Israeli paediatric care hospital selects Olympus AU680 clinical chemistry analyser

Olympus Life Science Europa - Microscopy : 09 September, 2008  (Application Story)
Schneider Children's Medical Centre of Israel, the only paediatric care hospital of its kind in the Middle East providing care exclusively to children and adolescents from around the world, has recently purchased an Olympus AU680 clinical chemistry analyser.
The analyser was selected by the hospital due to the system's high sensitivity and low blood sample volume that will minimise the amount of blood needed to be taken from young babies and children.

Dedicated to saving children’s lives, the Schneider Children's ensures medical excellence is achieved in all areas by adopting world class standards of hospital professionalism. Consequently, the hospital's biochemistry laboratory has sought to install an Olympus AU680, the latest member of the AU clinical chemistry family to be introduced by Olympus Life Science Europa.

Manager and founder of the Schneider Children's multi-disciplinary laboratory, Dr Yaffa Aurbach, explained why they selected the AU680, 'Due to the variety of tests that can be performed on the AU680, including: Substrates, Enzymes, Specific proteins, TDM and Immunoassays, it will complete 80 percent of our required tests. Additionally, since the analyser requires very low sample volumes, this means that Schneider Children's doctors will take a minimal blood sample from preterm infants, neonates and children.”

“I envision the AU680 serving various goals of the multi-disciplinary laboratory, such as strict precision (as manifested by highest international quality control standards), high sensitivity (extremely important in infants' values) and ability to provide rapid answers (crucial for supporting complicated operations and intensive care units),' Dr Aurbach added.
