  • Descripción del producto
    enGen Laboratory Automation Systems (enGen) || with TCAutomation -- For in vitro quantitative measurement of a variety of analytes of clinical interest; for pre-analytical and post-analytical sample and data management. --- Background: The enGen Lab Automation System is a modification to VITROS Analyzers that includes the addition of an automated track sub-system (TCAutomation) for pre-analytical and post-analytical sample and data management. In addition to an Automated Track Sub-system, the enGen System includes one or more VITROS Chemistry, Immunodiagnostic and/or Integrated Systems (clinical analyzers) as well as a Data Management Subsystem (Middleware), and a Software Configuration (gsb) File. The enGen System is typically interfaced with a Laboratory Information System (LIS) via connectivity facilitated at the Data Management Subsystem level. The Bypass Module is an analyzer specific module that interfaces clinical analyzers to the enGen System and allows for aspirating patient samples directly from the clinical analyzers. A sample tube carrier sensor in the Bypass Module is used to detect sample tube carriers as they leave the metering location of the Bypass. If a tube carrier is not detected within a defined period of time (6.4 seconds) the next sample to be metered may not advance for processing.
