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.
