Olympus AU680 – Lower Operational Costs and Improve Efficiency

by Lab Equipment Lab Equipment Supplier
With throughput of up to 800 photometric tests per hour, the Beckman Coulter/AU680 chemistry analyzer is ideal for use in mid- to high-volume laboratories. 

Chemistry analyzers are widely used in different settings, from hospitals, small point-of-care clinics to high-throughput clinical labs and research facilities. Advanced analyzers measure the concentration of certain metabolites, electrolytes, enzymes and proteins in samples of serum, plasma, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and other body fluids. Based on their requirements, clinical laboratories can choose from a wide range of compact benchtop analyzer models from leading manufacturers. The Beckman Coulter/Olympus AU680 chemistry analyzer is an automated chemistry analyzer that gives mid- to high-volume laboratories the flexibility to improve efficiency while reducing costs. 

Featuring a throughput capacity of up to 800 photometric tests/hour (up to 1,200 with ISE), and 60 photometric tests + 3 ISE, the AU680 offers improved user convenience with advanced automation options, extended analytical reach and reduced operating costs. This fully automated, random access chemistry system with STAT capability can analyze different sample types such as serum, urine, whole blood (HbA1c) and other bodily fluids.  

This chemistry lab device features a highly intuitive graphical user interface that includes a user-customized menu, color alerts to highlight system operating conditions and sample tracking and patient statistics. Flexibility is assured with a menu capacity of up to 63 different assays on board. A new special priority lane performs re-runs quickly. In addition, to increase automation levels, samples can be loaded via a new standardized rack tray for direct transfer from the Beckman Coulter AutoMate 2500 peri-analytical workstation. 

The Olympus AU680 features a high-precision micro sampling technique that provides accurate results. A large 150-sample rack loader provides for optimal sample processing during peak workload periods. Priority sample repeat/reflex reduces turnaround time for critical patients. Its triple reagent dispensing technique enables the AU680 chemistry analyzer to perform assays requiring up to three separate reagents. This improves analytical performance and reduces operating costs by eliminating the need for multiple calibrators via “Plug and Play” calibration using 2D barcodes.  Other key features and technical specifications include – 

  • Whole blood sampling capability is used for HbA1c testing
  • STAT Samples - up to 22 positions for STAT samples, bar-coded primary tubes
  • Sampling frequency of 4.5 seconds
  • Sample Volume - 1–25 μL in 0.1 μL increments (1–25 μL for repeats)
  • Ready to use liquid stable reagents
  • Reaction Time - up to 8 minutes, 40 seconds
  • Minimized reagent volumes
  • Liquid detection and remaining test number calculation
  • Data Storage - Sample number: 100,000 samples. Reaction data: 200,000 tests.
  • Automatic bottle switch capabilities
  • Applies to C3, C4, Transferrin and ASO
  • Positive sample identification to eliminate any sample mix ups
  • Clot detection and crash prevention
  • Standardized mixing procedures across the whole range of analyzers

This chemistry analyzer measures analytes in combination with appropriate reagents, calibrators, quality control (QC) material, and other accessories. Online help videos guide the operator on the proper technique when performing maintenance procedures and parts replacement, which promotes greater system uptime.
