AACC 2012: An automated, compact, random access chemistry analyzer is a cost-effective system designed for clinical chemistry and specialty testing.

Called Indiko, the Thermo Scientific (Waltham, MA, USA) chemical analyzer is being showcased at the 2012 annual conference of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Expo held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 15-19, 2012.

The benchtop analyzer is designed for routine clinical chemistry testing in small laboratory settings and specialty testing such as specific proteins, drug of abuse testing, and therapeutic drug monitoring including immunosuppressant drug monitoring (ISD).
A mix of bar-coded primary tubes and sample cups increase the flexibility of any operation. Patient oriented testing produces results quickly thus improving the quality of patient care.

With a small footprint, the Indiko analyzer fits ideally in a laboratory with space limitations. The graphical design of the user interface is supported by a touch screen.

Indiko includes several automated features, such as advanced dilution management and real-time monitoring of reagent usage, which help to manage a daily workload fluently. Samples, reagents, and consumables can continuously be loaded without interrupting the testing process, and different sample types can be analyzed at the same time.

A real-time QC program with multiple Westgard Rules assures the reliable performance. Application data as well as calibrator and control values are loadable from a file or from a two-dimensional barcode by the barcode scanner. The test flow definition allows for up to four reagent additions in each test, offering automation even for the most complex methods. The special cuvette design supports low reagent volumes thus reducing operating costs, especially important when working with specialty tests. Each cuvette is used only once to ensure accurate and precise results.
