The world is digitizing rapidly to deliver enhanced patient care and satisfaction, more effective data, and increased efficiency. And your Lab is no exception. That is why Ortho is introducing the next generation in Clinical Chemistry solutions, Digital Chemistry. Through Digital Chemistry, Ortho is reimagining the power of technology throughout your lab and providing you with the confidence to meet the needs of patients today and the knowledge you are prepared for the demands of tomorrow. The new VITROS® XT Systems utilize digital chemistry technology which enables the use of imaging algorithms to improve chemistry results. Its heart is our Digital Imaging System, the breakthrough in detection technology that replaces the analogue photometer and produces significantly more detail for each MicroSlide reaction. Digital analysis is performed using complex imaging algorithms which reduces errors and improves result quality. These algorithms identify the exact dimensions of the reaction zone on a MicroSlide, improving sample dispensing and reducing probe errors even detecting smaller sample volumes. When you add VITROS® digital INTELLICHECK®’s precise image algorithms for clot and bubble detection and VI VITROS® MicroSensor’s quantitative analysis of sample integrity, you get a vast reduction in errors and repeat testing. All these enhancements have been developed with your patients in mind. Optimizing the sample read area has an important patient benefit: reducing sample volume to an average of 3.8uL. This can improve the patient experience, particularly for populations whose sample is more precious. The new VITROS® XT Chemistry Products Slides have been developed for use on the VITROS® XT Systems. XT MicroSlides with dual test capability are intended to reduce sample size and enhance operational efficiency while maintaining analytical performance versus the conventional single slide test. Due to small sample volume, the size of the MicroSlide region available for optimum analytical measurement is reduced.
