Architect ci16200


No one doubts that 2 plus 2 equals 4. You can expect that kind of sensible logic when you add the ARCHITECT c16000 to the ARCHITECT i2000SR to create the ARCHITECT ci16200 integrated system. Every detail in the ARCHITECT ci16200 has been designed to handle high-volume, complex workloads with consistent quality, STAT processing, and ease of use. 

The ARCHITECT ci16200 integrated system meets the complex needs of the larger laboratory by providing clinical chemistry and immunoassay testing on a single platform.

For in vitro diagnostic use.
