Alfa Wassermann Diagnostic Technologies has released the ACE Axcel Clinical Chemistry System, a small analyzer for the physician office lab. The system is cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically for physician office lab use.
The system features a touchscreen and network connectivity for remote access and integration with an EMR and other systems. It’s meant to help physicians manage patients with diabetes, heart disease, metabolic
syndrome, and anemia among other diseases.
More about the system from the announcement:
The ACE Axcel is a self-contained system in a small footprint that can process up to 285 tests per hour with both photometric and potentiometric detection technologies. It can run any combination of single tests, panels or profiles from a comprehensive test menu, and has an open reagent system that enables custom assays. A STAT interrupt feature allows users to load and prioritize STAT samples during system operation to meet immediate diagnosis and treatment needs.
The ACE Axcel includes a number of features that automatically ensure accurate results. Closed-tube sampling with the STEP module minimizes operator interaction with patient specimens, making for a safer workplace. System calibration is automatically monitored on an ongoing basis. Web-enabled Alfa Assist(TM) technical support is available 24/7 and maximizes instrument uptime. Liquid, ready-to-use reagents eliminate operator prep time. The on-board reagent refrigeration feature maintains specimen and reagent integrity and decreases handling. In addition, reagent inventory is automatically managed by the system.
