A major international manufacturer of automated diagnostic instruments and point-of-care diagnostic products has changed its name, a change that was highlighted at the IFCC EuroMedLab Athens June 12-14, 2017, exhibition.
Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany), which is the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens AG (Munich, Germany) presented its latest Atellica Portfolio offerings at the Athens exhibition.
The Portfolio included: Atellica Solution (flexible, scalable, automation-ready immunoassay, and clinical chemistry analyzers), Atellica 1500 Automated Urinalysis System (fully digital, automated urinalysis system), Atellica NEPH 630 System (mid-volume, dedicated nephelometric system that simplifies specialty protein testing), Atellica COAG 360 System (fully automated high-volume coagulation system that unifies five testing methodologies), Atellica MDX 160 System (flexible, automated molecular system with maximum productivity for multiple sample types), and Atellica PM 1.0 Software (process management software to optimize lab operations through data analytics and visualization).
In addition, the Athens presentation featured the RAPIDComm Data Management System, which enables centrally managed point-of-care testing programs through a single customizable interface.
“The 2017 product display from Siemens Healthineers represents our focus on engineering success and pioneering healthcare,” said Franz Walt, president of laboratory diagnostics at Siemens Healthineers. “The Atellica portfolio epitomizes engineering excellence - with revolutionary innovations designed to give lab professionals control and simplicity so they can spend less time on operations and more time on driving better outcomes.”
“The informatics solutions from Siemens Healthineers are designed to address connectivity challenges to help position point-of-care testing programs for success,” said Peter Koerte, president of point-of-care diagnostics at Siemens Healthineers. “Through open connectivity to more than 150 devices from all leading point-of-care vendors, we deliver secure - yet flexible - connectivity options that increase both choice and performance for greater efficiency.”
