Olympus AU680 Chemistry Analyzer

The AU680® is designed for the demanding environments of mid-sized to large laboratories and hospitals. Automate and consolidate chemistry testing with Olympus’ field-proven reliability and 125 test menu including a fully automated HbA1c. Flexibility of design offers stand-alone operation or connectivity to lab automation systems for direct sampling, with random access throughput of up to 800 photometric tests per hour (up to 1200 with electrolytes), on-board menu of up to 63 tests and user-definable options for many operations such as sample handling and customized testing. The AU680 delivers efficiency for real world labs today and tomorrow.


* Only Olympus standardizes chemistry testing from 400 to 6,600 tests per hour for low to very high volume laboratories. This provides greater productivity, increased efficiency and lower cost for your lab
