Advanced Instruments Begins Shipments of A2O Automated Osmometers to Clinical Laboratories

NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA August 21, 2012 — Advanced Instruments, Inc., announced its first shipments of A2O® Advanced Automated Osmometers to a variety of major hospitals in the U.S. and countries around the world.

“There is a strong demand among major health care providers throughout the Americas, as well as the rest of the world, to acquire the A2O osmometer for their clinical laboratories,” said Kelly Peterson, Product Manager, Advanced Instruments. “The new system offers hospital laboratories, clinical reference laboratories and other health care institutions an excellent opportunity to improve their clinical laboratory productivity and workflow.”

The ability of the A2O osmometer to increase lab efficiency — by completely automating the sample processing steps; by providing positive sample identification features; and through its LIMS compatibility — is fueling demand for the instrument, Peterson explained. Hospitals across the United States as well as in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, and Singapore, have placed orders, he said.

The multi-sample A2O osmometer sets new benchmarks for analytical performance, ease of use, and true walk away operation in osmolality testing. It combines a highly functional design with an intuitive software control package to make the A2O both powerful and elegantly simple to operate. With its intelligent liquid handling, the A2O is the first osmometer to eliminate time-consuming and labor-intensive manual pipetting — the leading cause of sampling errors and inaccurate test results.

Advanced Instruments Introduces A2O Advanced Automated Osmometer Featuring Breakthrough Automation and Performance Levels

a2o-150NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, July 25, 2011 - Advanced Instruments, Inc., today introduced the A2OTM Advanced Automated Osmometer, a multi-sample instrument that sets new benchmarks for analytical performance, ease of use, and true walk away operation capabilities in osmolality testing. The announcement was made at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry’s 2011 Clinical Lab Expo.

“The A2O represents a major step forward in osmometry technology and offers clinical laboratory customers an exceptional opportunity to enhance their productivity and workflow,” said Kelly Peterson, product manager, Advanced Instruments. “It combines a highly functional design, exceptional performance, and an intuitive software control package that is both powerful and elegantly simple to operate.”

A2O Eliminates Time-Consuming Manual Pipetting

With its intelligent liquid handling, the A2O is the first osmometer to eliminate time-consuming and labor-intensive manual pipetting – the leading cause of sampling errors and inaccurate test results. The instrument fully automates sample processing to achieve dramatic gains in laboratory productivity and efficiency.

The instrument’s flexible software brings exciting new features and benefits to clinical laboratories:

  • Intuitive touchscreen interface provides easy-to-use functionality and operation
  • Integrated quality control features include automated system calibration, statistical monitoring and reporting, method control limits for controls and patient samples, and built-in system linearity checks
  • Selectable system operation and access levels provides operator login and password protection
  • Positive sample identification eliminates transcription errors
  • Sample testing protocols can be customized specifically for each laboratory’s unique test requirements

“Advanced Instruments has leveraged its 50 years of freezing-point technology experience to revolutionize osmolality testing,” said Peterson. “The A2O’s technology will allow clinical laboratory users to achieve more results, faster – and more efficiently.”

Anoxomat Anaerobic System Offers Clinical Laboratories “Green” Advantages Over Gas-Bag Methods That Generate Hazardous Waste

Advanced Instruments announced that its AnoxomatTM Anaerobic System for the laboratory cultivation of bacteria provides important “green” advantages over gas-bag methods that generate large quantities of hazardous waste.

“The Anoxomat system is an ideal solution for clinical laboratories desiring ‘green’ alternatives that eliminate hazardous waste generation, handling, and cost,” said Anthony Pappas, North American Sales Manager, Advanced Instruments.

In less than 3 minutes, the Anoxomat creates anaerobic and microaerophilic environments in reusable jars with no hazardous gases or materials. By contrast, gas bags require that each consumable plastic bag be disposed of after a single use, and then processed as hazardous waste at considerable trouble and expense.

“We estimate that a lab employing gas bags can generate up to several hundred pounds of hazardous waste per year as it grows bacterial cultures,” said Pappas. “With the Anoxomat, there is no hazardous material produced and the jars can be reused for years and then recycled.”

In addition, there are significant savings in reduced gas costs. “The Anoxomat was an easier operation … on gases alone. In the first year of operation, it probably saved us around $8,000 over gas bags,” said Frank Hollis of Hackensack Medical Center in Hackensack, New Jersey.

The Anoxomat system is highly efficient and cost-effective at cultivating pathogens and attaining growth performance that equals or exceeds that of gas bags. In addition, a built-in quality assurance system tests for leaks before incubation. The system checks whether the catalyst is capable of achieving the desired conditions and warns if there is a threat of failure.
