What makes the BA-800M analyzer different from the rest? 

The BA-800M analyzer is truly unique compared to other analyzers in its class.  What makes it stand out?

    1. Largest Walk-Away Capacity - The BA-800M analyzer offers the Largest Number of Sample Positions:
      • 440 on the BA-800M
      • 580 on the BA-800M2
    2. Most economical reagent consumption - The BA-800M analyzer has the Least Amount of Reagent Consumption - Minimum Reaction Volume is 100 µL.
    3. Scalable - Add a 2nd BA-800M system, creating a BA-800M2, to increase sample and through-put capacity to meet growing testing volumes. The BA-800M2 has 2 analytical processers and one Sample Delivery Module.
    4. Specialty Test Menu Capable - The BA-800M analyzer accommodates up to 4-reagent testing formats (example - Vitamin D assay)
