Smaller volume

High productivity

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.
