For lower- and mid-volume labs, whose budgets are often particularly constrained and where track-based automation may not be the right approach, VersaCell X3 Solution delivers several advantages. The new platform maintains its small footprint and upright design, but now connects up to three Siemens analysers through a single robotic sample interface for increased productivity gains. By supporting a customized mix of chemistry, immunoassay and/or integrated systems and associated assay menus, VersaCell X3 Solution helps labs reduce operator sample handling, better prioritize staff work and eliminate pre- and post-analytical processing—all through one-touch sample management. A conveniently placed priority drawer on VersaCell X3 Solution, situated above existing routine sample drawers, provides eight new STAT positions and frees up 50 sample positions for routine processing, enhancing STAT management and increasing overall sample routing flexibility. Plus, modifications to VersaCell X3 Solution’s signature robotic arm also enable it to support both rounded and flat-bottom tubes, and the incorporation of a docking plate reduces service intervention time for all connected systems, increasing uptime so that labs can continue to deliver results to clinicians on time. A centralized screen on VersaCell X3 Solution provides consolidated, single-operator access to all connected analysers, and further data consolidation is achievable through a connection to Siemens’ CentraLink™ Data Management System.
