Roche Integra 400 + Chemistry Analyzer – A Compact, Bench Top Model

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Ideal for use in small to mid-size laboratories, Roche Integra 400+ Chemistry Analyzer can run up to 400 samples per day. 



Widely used in different settings - from hospitals, small point-of-care clinics and high-throughput clinical labs and research facilities, chemistry analyzers are used to measure the concentration of certain metabolites, electrolytes, enzymes and proteins in samples of serum, plasma, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and other body fluids. These lab devices are used to determine specific hematology values and in clinical applications such as STAT analyses, vitro analysis and homogenous assays. Leading lab equipment suppliers offer innovative models of chemistry analyzers matching the specific needs of small to medium clinical laboratories. Roche Diagnostics Integra 400 Plus analyzer is the ideal option for clinical chemistry testing in laboratories running 50 to 250 samples per day. This compact tabletop analyzer offers maximum versatility and is designed to consolidate testing and increase efficiency while reducing total running costs of the laboratory. 

Integra 400 Plus – Impressive Features That Boost Lab Efficiency

Manufactured by Roche Diagnostics, the COBAS INTEGRA 400 Plus comes with four measuring technologies such as Absorbance photometry, Turbidimetry, Fluorescence polarimetry, and Ion-selective electrode potentiometry. It provides highly correlating results across all cobas® platforms. Featuring a compact foot print, the analyzer offers continuous loading and random access to samples. 

This bench top analyzer is the perfect solution for small to mid-size laboratories running up to 400 samples per day. It uses the convenient cobas c pack reagent format, which standardizes patient results across integrated laboratory networks. Each cobas c pack holds all necessary reagents for up to 800 determinations, maximizing on-board capacity and reducing the need for operator intervention and frequent reloading. For high volume tests, multiple cobas c packs of the same assay can be on-board for automatic switch-over during run. 

The Integra 400 Plus clinical chemistry system provides real security. Highly sensitive pressure sensors detect incorrect pipetting, even at 2 µL sample volume. Faulty samples are immediately flagged to improve handling of clotted samples. To remove the clot from sample probes, system wash pressures are optimized, thereby avoiding any maintenance actions and interruptions to workflow. Other standard features and specifications include – 

  • Sophisticated software programs to simplify operation and training
  • Single-use cuvettes to ensure carry-over free analytics
  • Sample Types - Serum, Plasma, Urine, CSF, Hemolysate and Whole Blood (HbA1c)
  • Sample Handling - 90 primary or secondary tubes on-board 
  • Object-oriented system software, based on Windows XP for standardized ease-of use
  • Integration of 4 measuring principles
  • Extremely stable LED light source for fluorescence polarization
  • Electrical Requirements - 100-125 / 200-240 Volts AC, 50 or 60Hz
  • Easy to read 19 inch flat screen monitor 
  • Cooled rack position for controls and calibrators
  • Continuous access to up to 90 samples for a smoother workflow
  • Clot detection and pipetting safeguards
  • Automatic sample dilution and concentration
  • 36 tests on-board

The clinical laboratory equipment features a broad test menu that comprises over 120 assays and applications including clinical chemistry, specific proteins, TDMs, DATs and whole blood HbA1c. The analyzer’s quality control programs monitor precision and accuracy to ensure reliable and quick test results. The software automatically tracks service needs and alerts the user when maintenance is due.
