About Metrolab

The Metrolab 1600 DR is a compact and easy-to-use semi-automated chemical analyzer that is offered by the U.V. Vis Metrolab, Argentine. The operating center incorporates a superior, temperature-controlled optical design with the measurement taking place in a specialized flow cell. The unit is easy to operate and its maintenance requirements are low. Most technicians can learn to use this software-driven device within an hour. The maintenance instructions are incorporated into the system software. Test results are stored in memory and are easily retrievable. A bi-directional connection feature enables the analyzer to download parameters and settings from a host computer and upload patient information to a data management system. The analyzer features a full screen, an integrated keyboard, and 60 programmable tests.

Metrolab 1600 DR

It counts with numerous benefits that make it useful for any kind of laboratory. It can work as the main reading device of a small or emergencies laboratory, or as “backup” device of an automated laboratory of bigger size.

It has been designed to work in the most demanding conditions and with minimum maintenance cost. Operations that usually require from technical support (lamp replacement, alignment, access to the peristaltic pump) have been simplified so that they can easily be performed by the user.

This device counts with a built-in printer and an innovative system that makes it possible to work with a thermostated micro flow cell or macro and semi-micro cuvettes. The cuvettes for measurement can be used instead of the micro flow cell for those potentially contaminating reagents (e.g. creatinine).It is capable of storing 132 open techniques and 30 calibration curves. It covers all the determinations carried in a routine laboratory.
