Alfresa Pharma Corporation

Discrete Clinical Chemistry Analyzer NS-Prime®

Walkaway and High Throughput Analyzer

Sample capacity is up to 220 samples (including 20 STAT samples)

Throughput is up to 300 tests per hour

Easy operation with a barcode system

NS-Prime® automatically reads barcodes to allow automatic registration of all reagents and related products (reagent, calibrator, control, specimen collection container, and specimen diluent), eliminating the need for any manual registration process.

Test results become available in about 10 minutes in 3 steps*

  • Measurement of calibrator and control must be performed separately.

Simultaneous Multiple Assay

Multiple items can be measured simultaneously during FIT (fecal hemoglobin), fecal transferrin and fecal calprotectin tests.

Automatic Dilution and Retest System

An automatic retest system evolved from the previous model is adopted. A concentration-specific retest function has been added to the automatic dilution and retest function, which was highly evaluated by users.
