Thermo Scientific Konelab PRIME 30


Konelab PRIME 30

Thermo Scientific* Konelab PRIME 30 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer is a highly developed clinical chemistry system for routine and special chemistries. 
The Thermo Scientific Konelab PRIME 30 is a cost-effective choice for medium-sized laboratories. It can be used as a stand-alone instrument or integrated as part of a laboratory automation system. The new design of the PRIME 30 includes integrated workstation, which makes the analyzer an ideal choice for laboratories with limited space. New features, like sample clot detection, improve operational efficiency and result integrity.

Additional Specifications Operating Principle:  
Random access analyzer for routine and special chemistries, including specific proteins, therapeutic drugs, drugs of abuse and user definable applications. 
Workload dependent, being in typical routine use up to 300 tests/hour. Time to first result is typically 3 to 12 min. 
Measurement Method:  
Colorimetric and turbidimetric principles. Kinetic and end-point modes. Spectral range: 340 – 800 nm. 
ISE Measurement:  
Direct potentiometry principle. Electrodes for Na+, K+ and Cl-. Li+, Ca2+ and pH upon request. 
Continuous access to samples without interrupting test processing. Max on-board capacity 84 routine samples and 6 STAT samples — 6 segments with 14 positions per segment. Integrated barcode reader and cup/tube recognition. Optional automation interface, KUSTI. 
Continuous access to reagents without interrupting test processing. On-board 45 pos. in the refrigerated reagent compartment. Automated identification by integrated barcode reader. Real time reagent status clearly displayed. Up to four reagent additions/test possible. 
Discrete disposable 12-cell cuvette. Continuous access to cuvettes without interrupting test processing. On-board capacity of 600 measurement cells — 50 multicell cuvettes with 12 reaction cells, typ. up to 2 hours walk-away time. 
Automatic sample pre-dilution. Automatic post-dilution with both high and low secondary dilution ratios. Ability to add the value of manual pre-dilution for the result calculation. 
Linear, non-linear or bias calibration. Method-dependent use of individual calibrators or automatically diluted series from a stock calibrator. 
Data Management Features:  
Integrated Windows XP workstation with graphical user interface. Sample barcodes in use: Code 128, Code 39, USS Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5. 
Quality Control:  
Real time QC with multiple, user-definable Westgard rules. Programmable control interval. QC chart printouts, daily and cumulative reports. 
Water Consumption:  
Distilled water consumption typ. <1.5L/h. Available on-board, no external connections required.
