Optimized workflow

Improve usability while enabling time for more value-added activities through:

  • New light notifications communicate instrument status from across the lab
  • New retractable work surface gives technologists additional space to work while at the instrument
  • New bulk reagent color-coded clips make bulk reagent loading easier and helps minimize errors
  • New remote access allows you to view, manage, complete, and print system data remotely
  • New integrated communication allows streamlined data management and inventory tracking across all host computers

Flexible solutions

New features based on user feedback:

  • New configuration has a decreased height compared to the BenchMark ULTRA
  • New integrated touchscreen reduces bottlenecks by allowing many functions to be done at the instrument
  • VSS 14.1 software allows for easier navigation of inventory management and ordering through a new filter as well as lot-to-lot validation on the same instrument
  • New proprietary waste management* solution degrades DAB (3,3'-diaminobenzidine) to less than 5 ppb meeting the most stringent municipality requirements for nonhazardous waste

*It is the responsibility of each customer to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations related to the disposal of waste.
