Architect c4000

The ARCHITECT c4000 is a high performance clinical chemistry diagnostic system capable of quantifying selected analytes in biological fluids. The system consists of the c4000 Processing Module, the Robotic Sample Handler (RSH), and a separate System Control Center (SCC) for initiating and monitoring operations.The system can be configured with up to 220 different assays including Ion Selective Electrode (ISE) analysis of sodium, potassium, and chloride with up to 90 different cartridges onboard. It can process samples at 400 tests/hour without ICTs and a maximum throughput of 600 tests/hour when running both photometric and ICT tests (9 second system cycle). Individual assay time is a maximum of 10.5 minutes for photometric tests and 4 minutes for ICT tests.
