Built upon a 20-year legacy of reliable performance, the Access 2 immunoassay system is a compact, random-access benchtop analyser that delivers an extensive diagnostic-testing menu. The new features have been added to improve ease-of-use, workflow efficiencies, system reliability and customer satisfaction. Changes include the addition of an internal reagent barcode reader to minimize operating loading errors, an upgraded ergonomic workstation for operator comfort, improved fluidics tray for operational efficiency, a status light bar for notifying operators of instrument status, remote monitoring capability and a refreshed look. The Access 2 provides remote PROService connectivity, on-the-fly reagent and consumable loading, proven reliability and delivers up to 100 tests per hour. Together these features and benefits save laboratories precious time. Ideal for small- to medium-sized physician office laboratories, community hospitals and independent references labs or as a back-up to other primary immunoassay systems, the Access 2 is a reliable and robust system. It is designed with sample probe obstruction detection and remote monitoring capability for instrument diagnostics, maintains greater than 98 percent system availability and delivers less than 1.1 emergency service calls per year. An extensive diagnostic testing menu is available for use on the Access 2 immunoassay system, with tests that cover a range of disease states to fulfill patient care needs. These tests include, adrenal disorders, anemia, bone metabolism, cardiac-related conditions, diabetes, infectious diseases, reproductive health, endocrinology, thyroid and tumour markers.
