Ortho Clinical Diagnostics improve lab efficiency icon

Dynamic workflow management

Designed to respond to your unique lab with customization features and the adaptability to accommodate unpredictable workflows while reducing the need for batch testing:

  • Continuous access: Load on the fly enables efficient test processing, which allows for prioritization of STAT requests while handling full test volume
  • Extensive menu: Ability to automate the full range of immunohematology testing, including serial dilutions for titration studies and selected cell panels
  • Self-regulating: Minimum 4-hour walk-away time under fully loaded conditions and up to 24 hours of productivity1 allow valuable resources to be dedicated to value-added tasks
  • Improved utilization:Has the capability to use the entire ORTHO BioVue® Cassette compared to ORTHO AutoVue® Innova System
  • Intuitive interface: User-friendly design makes it easy to find precisely what you need, which boosts the speed and precision of your lab’s decision-making capabilities
  • ORTHO BioVue® CAT Cassettes: Utilisation of trusted column agglutination technology known for its premium accuracy and standardised results offer the required sensitivity and specificity
