Innovative Diagnostic Instrument Introduced by Abbott for Low- to Mid-Volume Laboratory Market Segment
Date:4/15/2008

Highly Anticipated ARCHITECT(R) i1000SR(R) Analyzer Enhances Workflow and

Boosts Laboratory Productivity

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., April 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Abbott (NYSE: ABT) has introduced the ARCHITECT(R) i1000SR(R) immunochemistry analyzer, expanding its ARCHITECT family of diagnostics instrument systems for clinical laboratories. Designed for labs that typically perform less than 200 immunoassay tests per day, the instrument addresses many of the workflow challenges common in today's laboratories.

With the increased demand for diagnostic testing, laboratories, both large and small, need to process tests as quickly and efficiently as possible. By providing continuous access to reagents and samples while the instrument is running, the ARCHITECT i1000SR enhances laboratory productivity. Additionally, a wide test menu, user-friendly software and low maintenance make it easy to train new laboratory personnel on the instrument's operation.

"Because time and ease of use are so critical in the testing environment, Abbott worked extensively with customers very early in the development phase and designed an instrument that could help smaller labs overcome the same productivity obstacles faced by larger labs," said Cass Grandone, divisional vice president, Systems Development, Abbott Diagnostics. "The ARCHITECT i1000SR analyzer is ideal for facilities running less than 200 tests per day and offers productivity benefits, such as highly efficient sample processing, usually reserved for larger testing facilities. Since ARCHITECT utilizes common reagents, consumables and software user interfaces, larger laboratories may be interested in using the instrument as a back-up system to the i2000SR."

The ARCHITECT i1000SR analyzer can process up to 100 tests per hour. The instrument accommodates 65 patient samples and has the capability to prioritize emergency test results and turn them around in less than 16 minutes.

Similar to ARCHITECT ci8200(TM) and ci16200(TM), the analyzer is part of the ARCHITECT family, with important features including:

-- True Family Commonality. Key components, including reagents, can be

shared across ARCHITECT instruments and multiple testing sites for

effective and efficient patient care.

-- Enhanced Assay and System Dynamics. ARCHITECT instruments offer

advanced technology, which means laboratories, physicians and,

ultimately, patients can be confident in the accuracy of test results.

-- Integration without Compromise. The ARCHITECT family combines

immunoassay and clinical chemistry technologies without jeopardizing

key performance, including turnaround time or accuracy of results.

Abbott recently introduced three other instruments in the ARCHITECT family: the ARCHITECT c16000(TM) clinical chemistry analyzer, the ARCHITECT ci16200, an integrated immunoassay and clinical chemistry analyzer, and the ARCHITECT i4000SR(TM) analyzer for high volume immunoassay testing.
