Altair™ 240 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer from EKF Diagnostics

The Altair™ 240 by EKF Diagnostics is supported by a full-range of bar-coded, liquid-stable, ready-to-use Stanbio Chemistry reagents and at less than a meter in length the Altair 240 fits easily into most laboratory benches.

It’s the ideal solution for labs, doctors’ offices, clinics and veterinary labs in need of a benchtop analyzer.

With positions for 43 reagents and the ability to configure open channels if needed, the Altair™ 240 provides a comprehensive solution tailored to meet the demands of your laboratory.

The Altair™ 240 automatically reads and manages barcoded reagent bottles and sample tubes.

Most reagents have 30-day on-board stability to minimize waste.

The built-in cuvette washing system allows you to reuse cuvettes, lowering operating costs for your lab.

Automated performance

The Altair™ 240 automatically reads and manages barcoded reagent bottles and sample tubes. Most reagents have 30-day on-board stability to minimize waste. The intuitive Windows®-based software screens make learning and operating the analyzer quick and easy.

Fast and efficient

The Altair™ 240 can run up to 400 tests per hour with an optional Ion Sensitive Electrode (ISE) module. Dual reagent probes translate to higher throughput and faster patient turn-around time. The increased efficiency of reusable cuvettes translates into lower operating costs for your lab.
