Redesigned micro-sample osmometer provides advancements in laboratory efficiency, productivity, and workflow.
Advanced Instruments, will display their new OsmoPRO multi sample osmometer at the 69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in San Diego, CA, Booth 4951, August 1-3.
OsmoPRO is a 20-position, micro-sample osmometer designed specifically to address the changing needs of today’s busy laboratories, improve efficiency, and reduce sample turnaround time.
Ideal for sample-limited applications, OsmoPRO uses a small 20 μL sample size. Samples can be analyzed one at a time, or batch processed depending on workflow demands. OsmoPRO uses the industry-preferred freezing point depression method to deliver results in just 2 minutes.
A versatile piece of laboratory equipment for any laboratory setting, OsmoPRO is able to analyze a variety of complex aqueous mixtures including blood, serum, plasma, urine, stool, cell culture media, drug formulations, and biological cell therapies. Time saving features, like the ability to run tests unattended, automated processing of up to 20 samples, and the intuitive touchscreen, were designed to enable laboratory professionals the ability to manage their time effectively.
“The OsmoPRO was designed with a set of usability, connectivity, and software control features consistent with the demands of today’s overworked, highly regulated laboratories,” said Byron Selman, CEO of Advanced Instruments.
OsmoPRO’s integrated 2-D barcode scanner provides positive sample identification to reduce transcription errors. Data management and transfer can be handled via the on-board printer or by easily exporting the data using the Ethernet connection or multiple USB ports.
“The OsmoPRO, which replaced the Model 2020 osmometer, has received great reviews since its launch,” said Byron Selman. “The Model 2020 was an extremely popular and reliable osmometer used in thousands of laboratories. Our new product represents Advanced Instruments’ commitment to innovation in the field of osmometry, while maintaining the same product quality and reliability. We have expanded the product’s data management and communication features in response to evolving daily requirements in busy laboratories around the world.”
OsmoPRO can be used in a variety of laboratory applications including clinical diagnostics, formulation development, bioprocess monitoring and process control, industrial, environmental, and finished product quality control.
