About the RX altona

The RX altona shines a new light on semi-automated clinical chemistry testing with increased auto-functionality and ground-breaking technology. Revolutionising the RX series with its bold look, innovative design, and outstanding performance, it sets the benchmark for the next generation of RX series clinical chemistry analysers. The RX altona has been developed with the user in mind by incorporating a responsive touch-screen display. The sleek ergonomic design boasts intuitive user-friendly software allowing for test menu personalisationfor ease of use.
Personal customisation combined with the world leading RX series test menu guarantees complete patient profiling and astonishing functionality. Increased automatic features guarantee precision, reliability and accuracy for results you can trust. The RX altona provides exciting opportunities for consolidation of routine & specialised testing and is perfectly suited to a variety of laboratory types as a primary or a backup analyser.

These include;

  • Clinical laboratories
  • Specialised clinics
  • Research & educational laboratories
  • Veterinary Laboratories
  • Food and wine testing

Shining a New Light on Semi-Automated Diagnostics | Features & Benefits

  • Extensive dedicated test menu validated for optimum use
  • Low reagent & sample volumes
  • Ability to run flow cell mode or cuvette mode ensures optimal efficiency in testing
  • Ability to perform clinical chemistry and coagulation testing on the same platform
  • Large 7″ capacitive touchscreen
  • Extremely small footprint maximises laboratory space & enables portability
  • Robust components with increased life time (solid state filter system)
  • Intuitive icon-based software designed exclusively for the RX altona
  • Automatic aspiration via capacitive touch-start button saves operator time – no physical contact is required
  • Halogen tungsten lamp
