Enabling Technologies

The VITROS® 4600 System leverages four of our patented core enabling technologies to maximize patient result quality, ease of use and productivity.

  • VITROS® MicroSlide Technology delivers high-quality results with a 95% reportable resultefficiency* —minimizing operator interventions and maximizing ease of use.
  • VITROS® MicroTip Technology provides special chemistry menu offerings and user-defined assays in acost-effective, easily implemented format.
  • VITROS® MicroSensor Technology secures results quality and controls costs by automatically detecting and flagging endogenous interferences without compromising result turnaround orsystem operations workflow.
  • VITROS® Intellicheck® Technology delivers real-time process monitoring with fully documented traceability to minimize the risk of erroneous result reporting.

Single-Use Tip Design and Configurable Reference Ranges

A key VITROS® 4600 System performance feature is the system’s disposable, single-use tip design, which eliminates carryover to improve result quality.

In addition, configurable reference ranges account for seven demographic attributes, which offers greater specificity to improve result evaluation and trending within peer groups.

Extended Calibration Timesand Adjustable Thresholds

Extended calibration means a more productive and cost contained chemistry system. Also, the system offers adjustable thresholds for onboard inventories, calibration expirations and diluents volumes, which will help boost productivity while enabling you to tailor the instrument to your lab’s workflow.

Standardized User Interface

Also, the VITROS® 4600 System features a newly standardized user interface, which simplifies operation and improves sample integrity traceability. Moreover, if you plan on having more than one of the x600 Systems in your labor across your network, this standardized interface will streamline training and resource flexibility.

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics surrounds the purchase of the VITROS® 4600 System or any VITROS® System with world-class technical support specialists, expert field service engineers and laboratory specialists plus global hotline support in over 20 languages, to ensure a perfect VITROS® fit with your laboratory.
