Assay Productivity

Achieve consistent results and common user experience


Smartwash Technology

Minimize sample-to-sample carryover to ≤0.1 ppm, which reduces operator intervention and ensures confidence in results that influence patient care.

The Study validated that Alinity c mitigated carryover by achieving the defined acceptance criteria of ≤0.1 ppm
