Thinking Ahead: Advanced Clinical Solutions

Optimizing biotechnology processes through
customer-centric innovation and comprehensive support.

For many in biologics process development and manufacturing, knowing that your work saves lives, improves health, and alleviates suffering fuels a commitment to quality. But there are times when ensuring quality can feel like it conflicts with the need for speed and efficiency.

Not all osmometers can deliver the same accuracy, precision and speed as those from Advanced Instruments

At Advanced Instruments, we believe that quality and productivity go hand-in-hand and have built a family of products and services to help biologics manufacturers and process developers ensure the yield, purity, and consistency of biopharmaceutical products through osmolality testing..

Whether you need to maintain optimal cell growth, ensure active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) purity and yield, or confirm quality during fill and finishing, we offer an advanced osmometer that will keep your processes productive and on track, saving time and reducing costly re-work.

Applications

Medical lab instruments that deliver accuracy and efficiency

For laboratories seeking premium, reliable osmometers that meet their everyday needs for workflow efficiency, patient results security and integrity, connectivity, quality control, and compliance with CAP and CLIA guidelines , Advanced Instruments Osmometers are the right choice.

Keep your labs running smoothly and in compliance with osmometers that use the industry preferred freezing point depression method to provide accurate patient results.

Clinical Osmometer Applications

Advanced Instruments Osmometers can improve your workflow and increase efficiency in a wide variety of fields.

Streamline workflow, save money and improve the quality and consistency of your bacterial cultivation. Automatically and easily create exact, repeatable environments to keep clinical labs productive so patients can potentially get treated faster and spend less time in the hospital.

With the Anoxomat anaerobic jar system by Advanced Instruments, you’ll get the flexibility to simultaneously maintain multiple types of anaerobic, micro-aerophilic, and capnophilic environments on your benchtop for fast and reliable bacterial growth and larger colonies.

The Anoxomat system speeds sample processing with the ability to move plates into and out of the micro-environment within minutes instead of the hours it takes with full-sized vacuum systems and anaerobic chambers. Everyone in the lab can accomplish more with Anoxomat.

Busy labs often look to automation to ensure timely sample processing, but analyzing CSF samples – especially those at clinically relevant low cell counts – can be time-consuming and challenging. For labs that want to improve results consistency and turnaround time, there’s an Advanced Solution that meets this need with GloCyte.

Our CSF cell counter automates handling of all CSF samples, detecting down to 1 cell/µL and delivering total nucleated cell (TNC) and red blood cell (RBC) results in less than 5-minutes using only 30 µL per test, GloCyte gives labs a reliable and efficient method for automating analysis of all CSF specimens.
