Olympus AU2700 High-Volume Chemistry Immuno Analyzer

Creating more efficiency for high volume laboratories, the AU2700 automates chemistry-immuno testing and provides extended walk away time. This high-speed analyzer delivers true random access testing with up to 1600 photometric test results per hour (up to 2133 results with electrolytes) and up to 51 tests on-board. Consolidate with Olympus’ 125 test menu, including chemistries, special chemistries, urine chemistry, specific proteins, esoteric chemistries and tests for therapeutic drug monitoring, drugs-of-abuse, and thyroid function. With the newest Olympus advances to increase ease of use, the AU2700 delivers efficiency to meet real world lab needs.
