Siemens ADVIA Centaur XP - For Efficient Immunoassay Testing

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
The Siemens ADVIA Centaur® XP immunoassay analyzer comes with a throughput capacity of up to 240 tests/hour.



Modern clinical and research laboratories use top quality, high performance immunoassay analyzers to measure the concentration of analytes in blood or body-fluid samples. Applications range from testing for cardiac allergies, cancer markers, infectious diseases, biomarkers and thyroid testing, congenital disease, diabetes, allergy testing and therapeutic drug monitoring. Reputable suppliers of laboratory equipment offer advanced systems that provide accurate and timely results. The ADVIA Centaur® XP is a high-performance immunoassay analyzer that has more on-board reagents and dedicated STAT capabilities than other systems. Manufactured by Siemens, this analyzer is designed to help labs maximize productivity, regardless of volume or types of tests. It allows clinical and research labs to handle both routine and specialized testing without sacrificing efficiency. 

Featuring a high throughput of up to 240 tests/hour, this immunoassay system offers continuous operation without interruption and allows labs to keep pace with peak load times. It comes with a comprehensive diagnostic testing menu that covers screening, diagnosis, risk assessment and monitoring.  The system’s high-resolution touch screen allows easy interaction and its universal sample rack design eliminates manual tasks. Its data archive feature reduces time for administrative tasks. 

This analyzer’s Smart Algorithm Software automatically repeats and confirms reactive testing and its user interface adjusts for customized ergonomics. It also includes a 360º status light that displays information visible from all points and instrument sensors that enhance remote diagnostic functions. Other standard features and technical specifications include - 

  • STAT port guarantees priority sampling at any time
  • Sample volume - 10 uL to 200 uL assay dependent
  • Sample types - Serum, plasma, urine - assay dependent
  • Reagent cooling - 30-position reagent tray cooled 4°C to 8°C
  • Expanded ancillary reagent and fluid capacity 
  • Disposable pipette tips eliminate sample-to-sample carryover
  • Automatic dilution, repeat and reflex testing 
  • Assays on board - 30
  • Assay packs - ADVIA Centaur® ReadyPack™ assays
  • 30 onboard reagents maximize test capacity
  • No daily startup with automated maintenance features

Laboratories can meet increased testing demands by consolidating vitamin D testing on this fully automated, high-throughput immunoassay system. The ADVIA Centaur® XP provides vitamin D test results in as little as 18 minutes, (results every 15 seconds thereafter, assay dependent).

Choose a Reliable Dealer
