Major new features for peri-analytical system
Major new features for peri-analytical system. The oLA2500, a leading peri-analytical automation system, allows fully automated high speed decapping, aliquoting, sorting and archiving of any primary sample tube. The system can accept different tube racks and interface with third party analysers. Following customer feedback, the oLA2500 Series iii now incorporates three major new features, namely 3D Cap Colour recognition, read Through Label (rTL) Sample Volume Detection and Automatic recapping. The 3D Cap Colour recognition helps laboratories meet the demands of GLP for full result traceability. The advanced Tube identification Unit (TiU) combines a side view of the cap with a top view to enable sample material identification at any stage together with a crosscheck between test request and sample material. read Through Label (rTL) Volume Detection takes account of the fact that several barcode labels are often stuck on topof each other.
Based on infra-red technology, two different algorithms are used to measure either thecomplete tube contents in the case of whole blood samples, or the supernatant volume for serum and plasma tubes. This enables reliable sample volume detection through up to three labels. The final innovation is the automated recapping of both glass and plastic tubes using chemically inert Parafilm. Performing this function whilst racks are still on the instrument eliminates risk of sample evaporation or contamination during archiving.
