Washington D.C. – July 10, 2008 – Advanced Instruments, Inc. (www.aicompanies.com), of Norwood, Massachusetts, will showcase the Model 3320 Single-Sample Micro-Osmometer at the 2008 AACC Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo, July 27-31, 2008, in Washington, DC.
The Model 3320 is an automated, single-sample freezing point depression (FPD) micro-osmometer that determines the total concentration of dissolved molecules in biological fluids, such as serum or urine. The technology is utilized by clinical laboratories and clinicians to provide fast, accurate and precise results for monitoring and diagnosing fluid and electrolyte imbalances.
“Our FPD osmometers have been used in clinical chemistry laboratories for more than 40 years, as they provide a direct measurement of osmolality,” said Peter Costas, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Advanced Instruments (www.aicompanies.com).
A low profile and compact instrument, the Model 3320 offers simple architecture that eliminates sample errors, simplifies testing, and promotes maintenance-free operation.
Additional features of the Model 3320 include:
- Requires only a 20µL sample
- Superior accuracy and precision
- On-board statistical analysis
- Results recall up to the last 30 tests
- Utilizes the industry-preferred freezing point method
