"Standardized results across laboratory instruments is increasingly important as the reputation of the laboratory and its influence on quality healthcare depends on providing consistent, fast and accurate results to enable the medical staff on site and in other locations to make critical treatment decisions," said Michael Warmuth, senior vice president, diagnostics, Abbott. "We're pleased that Abbott can meet these and other critical needs of laboratories through our complete family of ARCHITECT products."
In addition to standardization across instruments, Abbott's ARCHITECT c4000 and ci4100 are designed to deliver improved productivity to lower volume laboratories. The c4000 analyzer can generate up to 800 test results per hour while the ci4100 integrated system can generate up to 900 test results per hour. With an extensive menu of diagnostic tests and a large sample and reagent load-up capacity, the ARCHITECT c4000 and ci4100 can consolidate a laboratory's workload to increase efficiency and save costs. ARCHITECT instruments are simple to operate with advanced sample management capabilities from the innovative three-dimensional Robotic Sample Handler. With this feature, once manual steps are now automated, which saves laboratories time and money and better meets their increased testing demands.
In addition, Abbott's integrated instruments are the only products on the market that feature no clinically significant sample-to-sample carryover, less than 0.1 parts per million, without resorting to unnecessary sample handling, plastic disposables like pipette tips or extended processing times due to the risk of contamination.
"We evaluated the ARCHITECT c4000 with one of our partner laboratories and found that the ARCHITECT c4000 provides laboratory efficiencies with commonality and equivalent results across the family," said Rob Kerekes, c
