The ACCELERATOR a3600 is a total laboratory automation system that provides the power and flexibility to meet the needs of the laboratory, both today and in the future. Combined with informatics and lean principles, the ACCELERATOR a3600 maximizes efficiency by providing consistent, predictable sample management and helps improve patient care by minimizing opportunities for error.
The modular design of ACCELERATOR a3600 allows you to create a design that is customized to fit your laboratory. The ACCELERATOR a3600 offers open third party analyzer connectivity* which provides the flexibility to meet changing demands.
Our workflow specialists work closely with you to understand your operations, needs and goals. We use a stepwise approach, including goal identification and understanding, process and system design, 3D visualization, CAD generation, and solution realization.
*Requires third party vendor and Abbott agreement to connect to the ACCELERATOR a3600 in each case.
