VITROS® 5600 Integrated System

Laboratories are constantly under pressure to produce faster, higher-quality results, even under increased demands. The VITROS® 5600 is an integrated system that brings together 5 proven technologies designed to remove the obstacles to reducing turnaround time and increasing your ability to provide meaningful results.

 

 

Benefits & Features

Improve operations with a one-tube-in, one-tube-out workflow

 

Centralize sample loading and prioritize up to 50 samples1 to optimize workflow, with a system that processes both chemistry and immunoassay samples simultaneously. And eliminate the need to manually move samples between modules or create aliquots.

 

Meet increased demand for testing

Help your laboratory keep up during peak hours with a system that has 150 reagent positions that allow 100+ assays onboard at once. Operators can change reagents, consumables, and waste without stopping operations. The system is ready for point-in-space automation with minimal modifications to meet growing testing needs.

Enhance patient safety and compliance

 Reduce errors with automatic monitoring, documentation, and real-time operator notification. Eliminate carryover contamination with single-use tips for sample and reagent metering. And help to ensure meaningful, comparable results with full traceability.

Simplify the process for operators of all skill levels

 Deliver high-quality results with a system designed to minimize the need for operator intervention, maintenance, calibration and manual interpretation of sample quality. Start-up training and ongoing education programs can also improve laboratory efficiencies.

Expand available assays while standardizing reagents and results

 Cover the majority of your menu needs and testing volume with one integrated system. The VITROS® 5600 System covers 90% of the menu needs and 99% of a typical laboratory's testing volume,1 with over 120 available assays, 10 user-defined chemistry channels, a wide accessible menu onboard at all times, and standardized reagents and results across all VITROS®platforms.

Save space and environmental resources

 Maximize space in your laboratory with the consolidated design of this integrated chemistry system. And help reduce your hospital’s environmental footprint with a system that generates minimal waste and requires no water or drains.

Maximize uptime and help to ensure consistent support

Resolve technical issues quickly with highly secure, real-time, 2-way communication between your system and our support teams. And take advantage of additional process consulting and laboratory design services, as well as call centers, proactive monitoring, and experienced field engineers to improve efficiency.
