(June 27, 2002) Melville, NY - Olympus
Diagnostic Systems Group today announced its newest line of advanced chemistry-immuno
systems, the AU640 e-Class analyzers. Designed to optimize workflow within medium
to high volume test labs, the new AU640 e-Class systems feature versatile performance
with a 122-test menu that includes chemistry, specific proteins, DAT, TDM, thyroid
and esoteric tests.
new systems provide the versatility found within the current Olympus AU640 lineup
including true random access testing, pediatric sampling and immediate STAT interrupt,
150 sample loading capacity and continuous sample rack feed with throughput of
up to 800 tests per hour (1,200 with electrolytes). However, the e-Class systems
utilize enhanced hardware and Windows NT software that enables labs to reduce
operator training time with customized menus, icons and color-keyed graphics.
Olympus AU640e incorporates the same standardization common among all
other AU Series chemistry-immuno analyzers
standardization that's definable
through the use of the same reagents, calibrators, controls, consumables and parts;
the same results and reference ranges; and the same 122-test menu.
will be offering an upgrade program for current AU640 customers through its Customer
Service and Technical Support network.
