CA-600

Category:

The CA-600 system is a compact, fully automated coagulation analyser which utilises the proven optical detection technology and the same reagent system of Sysmex coagulation family analysers. It offers high performance automation for clotting assays in a true random access. Combining the simplicity of use and diagnostic power, the laboratory can be confident that they continuously stay ahead in haemostasis testing with the CA-600.

CA-600

Sysmex’s smallest fully automated haemostasis analyser that offers clotting detection principle.

The CA-600 system offers an economical, automated solution for low-medium volume laboratories to achieve analytical excellence, workflow efficiency and improved data management.

Analytical excellence

  • The imprecision of manual coagulation testing is high, with coefficient of variation (CV) of greater than 20%; and duplicate measurement is thus recommended. With CA-600, fully automated coagulation analyser, the accuracy has greatly improved, attaining a CV of less than 5%, and as low as 1% for some tests.
  • Based upon its predecessors, the proven optical based detection principle allows operator to visualise the clot formation, and together with its in-built checking algorithm, detect any unusual in-vitro clot formation to avoid the report of inaccurate results.

Workflow Efficiency

  • Medical Technologists can now focus on higher value aspects of laboratory testing such as pre-analytics or post-analytics that require focused attention.
  • Simultaneous analysis of up to 5 parameters and optimal throughput allow laboratories to perform routine and specialty testing in greater efficiency.

Excellent data management

  • Sample barcode reader simplifies sample ID processing and enables security and integrity of patient records.
  • Handheld 2D barcode reader simplifies the data entry process for ISI, control and calibrator values, lot numbers, and expiry information.
  • Data up to 600 samples or 3000 tests can be stored onboard for easy retrieval for review.
