CLAM-2000 Fully Automated Sample Preparation Module for LCMS
The Clinical Laboratory Automation Module (CLAM-2000) is a fully automated sample preparation module for LCMS designed to improve reproducibility of test results, while increasing laboratory efficiency. Simply place blood collection or other tubes in the sample rack and the system automatically performs everything from sample pretreatment through to the LCMS analysis. Consequently, the system is able to minimize human error and variability in sample pretreatment procedures through hands-free operation. Therefore, it helps achieve a high-precision workflow for clinical research that is safer, faster, and simpler.
- Simply place the blood collection tubes to be analyzed, necessary reagents, and specialized pretreatment vials in the system which then performs all processes automatically.
- Each sample is processed successively in parallel, to optimize instrument usage and sample throughput.
- The CLAM-2000 frees up time spent by laboratory staff performing tedious sample preparation steps, thus increasing laboratory efficiency.
- Easy to access software controlled management of reagents, calibration curves, control samples, and system maintenance ensures system performance and reliability.
- Easy to interpret charts and figures alert users to decreasing reagent volumes or variable QC sample results.
- The system eliminates manual operations involving biological samples, such as dispensing. Not only does this improve reproducibility of data, but it minimizes user contact with biohazardous material.
- Potentially infectious waste products are kept isolated inside the system. This allows such waste to be disposed of after the analysis is finished, according to the procedures specified for that laboratory.
