Large load capacity

Consistent stat results

One platform. Multiple benefits. The ARCHITECT ci8200 combines the ARCHITECT c8000 and the ARCHITECT i2000SR to provide clinical chemistry and immunoassay testing in a single integrated system. By delivering fast, high-quality STAT results, the ARCHITECT ci8200 allows for laboratories to handle complex workloads.

The ARCHITECT ci8200 integrated system provides laboratories a single testing module that is specifically designed to improve laboratory efficiency and turnaround time. The ARCHITECT ci8200 offers a maximum throughput of up to 1,400 tests per hour, including 1,200 clinical chemistry and 200 immunoassay tests. Featuring a load-up capacity of 365 samples with 35 priority positions, the ARCHITECT ci8200 has up to 146 refrigerated reagent positions plus Integrated Chip Technology (Na+, K+ and Cl-).

For in vitro diagnostic use only.
