Developed as part of the versatile R andox RX Series, the RX Imola is a compact fully automated benchtop clinical chemistry analyzer, ideal for medium to large throughput laboratories. Flexible and efficient, the RX Imola is suitable for a variety of applications and saves time, effort and costs with the widest test menu of reagents available.
Capable of handling the workload high volume facilities, the RX Imola provides rapid, comprehensive and accurate results the first time, every time. The analyzer has a dual reagent probe that minimizes carry over, and five-speed mixing arms that eliminate foaming. The RX Imola delivers up to 400 photometric tests per hour and 240 ISE tests per hour at a minimum reaction volume of 150µl.
The RX Imola was designed with smooth and flexible operation in mind. It provides straightforward and intuitive operation with the easy-to-use, Windows®-based software, and is capable of running various assays. Additionally, the RX Imola analyzer gives highly accurate testing with the integrated ISE unit for sodium, potassium and chloride, serum indices and its dedicated micropipette.
Other superior features of the RX Imola include automatic generation of Levey Jennings charts and running mean values and QC statistics. This compact analyzer has a built-in inventory management system with a storage capacity of 1,000,000 test results, including 25,000 calibration results.
