A2O System Features
Touch-screen user interface: With a menu driven operating system, intuitive software control, and multi language capability, operating the A2O is simple.
Direct sampling from the primary sample tube : Eliminates the need of the technician to do any liquid handling and pipetting, minimizes sampling errors and improves accuracy of test results
Intelligent liquid handling technology: Featuring liquid level sensing, crash detection, self-cleaning pipette, and a simple fluid management system. These features provide flexible sample processing while minimizing sample carryover and cross-contamination.
Automated multi sample capability: A 20 position primary sample tube carousel intelligently designed to accommodate the most common sample tubes sizes and low volume insert sample cups.
Positive Sample Identification: An integrated bar code scanner with software control provides effective sample management and eliminates transcription errors. The onboard printer provides additional sample identification and results reporting benefits.
STAT sample capability: When you need results fast without disrupting the current test sequence.
Enhanced connectivity: Featuring bi-directional data communications, Windows® CE operating system, Ethernet, and multiple USB inputs, the A2O provides superior communication and connectivity capabilities
Built in Quality Control: The powerful software package comes complete with full list of QC features including: A supervisor mode with password protection, ability to set control limits for patient samples, statistical monitoring and graphing of daily controls, built in linearity check, and a search function to easily retrieve historical test results
