Features & Specifications
The Medica Easy RA is a fully automated table top, compact random access Clinical Chemistry analyzer that accommodates the diverse needs of small laboratories and Research centers.
EasyRA is an Easy to learn, use, maintain and afford. It requires minimal training .
Its simplicity and sturdy design has made it one of the most reliable chemistry analyzer in the world chosen by leading Routine laboratories, Research institutes and Veterinary labs worldwide.
No routine photometer lamp replacement is required as it uses a state of the art Xenon flash lamp, no routine maintenance is required just the half f yearly changing of a pump tubing performed by the user that takes less than a minute . All this makes it a Virtually maintenance free analyzer.
All reagents are liquid, stable, and ready to use. You do not have to set up or program any test parameters as the RFID chip located in each reagent bottle label contains all reagent information.
It has a throughput of 300 tests per hour (480 with integrated ISE),
It has a 24 position patient sample Tray
The state of the art and precise automated pipetting system enables the use of small sample volumes between 2 and 25 uL depending on the requirement.
Low Deionized / Distilled water consumption of typically less than ½ liter per running hour, thereby eliminating the need for an online Deionized water plant.
Deionized / distilled water and waste are contained on board, thereby eliminating the need for a waste plumbing or an online Deionized water plant
The analyzer can accommodate sample cups or primary tubes in a wide range of sizes
