Benefits & Features

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics reduce errors icon

Reduce errors and increase result quality

Significantly reduce analytical errors with proprietary Intellicheck® Technology and enjoy worry-free result reporting with the IntelliReport, which provides real-time status on the quality of every patient result. In addition, unique short sample, clot, and bubble detection offers greater security and single-use disposable tips eliminate sample carryover and cross contamination.

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics test integrity icon

Increase result integrity for quality result reporting

Help to ensure the integrity of results with patient samples and reagents automatically metered into MicroWells, dual-logic processing for optimal assay performance and throughput, and Intellicheck® Technology verification at each step

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics improve lab efficiency icon

Optimize labor efficiency to meet increased demand

Optimize efficiency by reducing operator intervention with the ability to load up to 20 Integrated Reagent Packs at any one time, which can be stored on-board for continuous, random access operation. The VITROS® ECiQ produces up to 90 results per hour (depending on test mix), helping your lab to meet increased demand. In addition, minimal maintenance, including no tubing cleaning or replacement, and no priming of reagents—even for start-up operations—means less operator intervention and true walk-away automation.

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics reduce costs icon

Contain costs and save resources

Save costs and plan ahead with patented VITROS® Technologies designed to deliver predictable financials and eliminate many of the hidden costs that can be associated with other immunoassay analyzers. The VITROS® ECiQ’s small footprint and no plumbing, drains, vents, or deionized water—combined with increased reportable results efficiency, fewer errors and interventions, and more effective staff utilization—lead to low total costs.
