Eurolyser CCA 180


The first clinical chemistry analyser with a completely maintenance-free LED (light emitting diode) photometer and a three-year warranty on the photometer unit. Wavelengths: 340nm, 405nm, 505nm, 546nm, 620nm.


Who is the analyzer best sited for?

The Eurolyser was specially designed for small to medium-sized laboratories and medical practices that have a testing volume of 12,000 ? 100,000 tests per year).


Why should I choose the Eurolyser?

Reagent costs account for 95% of testing expenses. Thanks to its unique LED measurement technology, the Eurolyser can perform tests using very low reagent volumes and is therefore the most economical bench-top analyzer on the market. Its open reagent system is completely independent of reagent manufacturers and can systematically perform all standard tests that are based on clinical chemistry.

STAT samples can be added and tested at any time ? even in the midst of a large test run. The Eurolyser can automatically perform a large number of testing protocols, e.g. end point, differential (serum blank), immuno-turbidimetry, multi-standard and bichromatic chemistry analyses.

The Eurolyser automatically performs all the required pipetting steps to analyze pre-centrifuged patient samples. The integrated inspection mechanisms, such as fluid detection, a cuvette sensor system, a motor power monitor, etc., all ensure the highest operational safety.

DETect (TM), a Windows software package, automatically monitors the analyzer while it?s processing samples and/or when new parameters are entered during the run (RANDOM ACCESS) ? continuously ensuring the fastest processing times, thanks to its intelligent scheduling module.

The Eurolyser is a multi-chemistry testing system; that means it can perform tests consisting of up to three reagents. It can process the most complicated pipetting schemes, because there are no fixed cycle times or pipetting series to be adhered to ? this is of particular interest to research laboratories and niche markets (e.g. the food industry).

The Eurolyser can be loaded with up to 25 reagents at once and its linear photometer features a completely maintenance-free optic system with 20 measurement channels. Due to the Eurolyser?s simultaneous measurement methods, its testing rate and capacity are equal to those offered by much larger instruments.
