Architect ci4100


The ARCHITECT ci4100 combines ARCHITECT c4000 and ARCHITECT i1000SR instruments − offering lower volume laboratories the enhanced efficiency and productivity employed by larger volume laboratories.

The ARCHITECT ci4100 offers a maximum throughput of up to 900 tests per hour, including 800 clinical chemistry and 100 immunoassay tests. Featuring a load-up capacity of 180 samples with 35 priority positions, the ARCHITECT ci4100 has up to 115 refrigerated reagent positions plus Integrated Chip Technology (Na+, K+ and Cl-).

For in vitro diagnostic use only.

*Values provided represent the typical output in “Running” mode for the system processing module and sample handler. A maximum value of 389 BTU/hr was obtained for the System Control Center (SCC) using the ARCHITECT i2000SR as a representative system. Values obtained during an internal study. Data is on file with Abbott.
 Note: Some of these specifications are based on the combination of the ARCHITECT c4000 and the ARCHITECT i1000SR. For accurate and complete specifications, please refer to the individual operations manual.
