Solutions to the Diagnostic Challenges of Today.
In your struggle to manage the demands of today's diagnostic laboratories, Beckman Coulter can help. Our innovative systems--instruments, reagents, applications, software and supplies--help simplify and automate lab processes to improve your productivity. We help you do more, in less time, with greater levels of automation, at a lower overall cost.
From choosing the right systems for your laboratory's specific needs, to keeping those systems running smoothly and cost-effectively over time, Beckman Coulter provides all the support your laboratory needs.
Automation and Information Systems
Need to increase lab productivity and service to physicians--and lower costs? You need automation that fits your lab. Our flexible, open-architecture automation systems eliminate tedious, manual processes, enabling your lab to benefit from greater productivity, lower operating costs and decreased test turnaround time with minimal variability. Plus, with automation, your lab can accommodate larger test volume without additional FTEs and reduce opportunities for medical errors for improved patient safety.
And by combining lab automation with our innovative information systems, you can improve your lab's processes even further. Data management software like DL2000 or Remisol 2000 helps your lab focus on critical results and streamline reporting, while our unique Command Central workstation allows your lab to access and monitor multiple Beckman Coulter instruments--all from a single workstation.
From discovery to diagnosis, Beckman Coulter simplifies and automates processes in the flow cytometry laboratory. Our hardware, software and reagents have been developed to ensure samples are handled, and results are derived from the most efficient ways possible. Combined with our high quality support network, we help maximize your laboratory's uptime.
UniCel[R] DxC Clinical Systems represent the next generation of automated chemistry analyzers from Beckman Coulter. They offer the perfect blend of peak performance, simplicity in operation and outstanding capacity that can transform your laboratory's daily operation. For integrated chemistry and immunoassay testing, look no further than the UniCel DxC 600i. And all these systems include a feature available on no other chemistry analyzer-closed-tube sampling. Closed-tube sampling (and closed-tube aliquotting on the DxC 600i) enhances efficiency and reduces the potential for errors and injuries, which help your lab reduce overall costs.
To help you simplify and automate the sample analysis process, Beckman Coulter continues to lead new product innovations including state-of-the-art hardware, software and highly efficient reagents, calibrators and controls. Combined with our unsurpassed reputation for service excellence, you have it all: results, support and performance you can count on.

When you are challenged to do more with fewer resources, Beckman Coulter has the immuno-diagnostics systems--and menu--to help your lab maximize efficiency and test accuracy. From the high-throughput UniCel[R] DxI 800, which processes up to 400 immunoassays per hour, to the user-friendly Access[R] 2, these systems all use the same reagents and similar assay protocols to deliver consistent patient results no matter which platform performs the test. The systems feature simplified operator interfaces, laborsaving automation, and quality assays such as Hybritech[TM] PSA, free PSA and AccuTnI[TM].
Beckman Coulter is redefining the molecular diagnostics process, enabling high-complexity laboratories to reach new levels of efficiency.

How does the ID-MTS Gel System deliver all this? Four simple, but powerful, principles!
The standardized methodology for safe and cost effective types and screens begins with a patented gel card and patient sample. Each card is delivered with gel-filled microtubes infused with pre-measured reagents, helping to standardize the reaction and stabilize results--ensuring uniformity from test-to-test, tech-to-tech, and lab-to-lab.
Safety. Stable and clear endpoints improve safety and reduce opportunities for error making it easy to understand why blood banks rarely return to tube testing once they've adopted gel.
Ease of Use. Gel testing is easy to learn, use, and teach making it the ideal technology for all shifts and all levels of technicians regardless of blood banking experience.
Cost effectiveness. Gel testing requires fewer steps than tube testing, dramatically reducing hands on time, with less waste and costly rework. Outstanding specificity also means less time and fewer resources are spent on clinically unimportant antibodies.
Putting this all together, Ortho is confident that your lab will benefit from gel, bringing you an array of gel cards for virtually all of your testing needs:
* Antibody screening and identification
* ABO grouping/Rh phenotyping
* Compatibility testing
* Direct antiglobulin testing
* Reverse serum grouping and antigen typing

RhoGAM[R] Ultra-Filtered Rh (D) Immune Globulin (Human)
Trusted for more than a generation, there is only ONE RhoGAM[R]. Before RhoGAM was developed, Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn claimed the lives of roughly 10,000 babies in the U.S. every year. In the 35 plus years since that first injection, RhoGAM has protected millions of babies and has been trusted by more than a generation of mothers.
Proven Record of Safety & Quality
* Safety Well-established donor pool, small in number with several donors participating in program for at least 10 years. Plasma testing includes PCR for HCV, HIV, HBV and parvovirus. RhoGAM does not contain human serum albumin (HBA), which is typically sourced from large donor pools.
* Quality Supplied in a latex-free, preservative-free, disposable syringe with safety shield. RhoGAM[R] and MICRhoGAM[R] Ultra-Filtered is prepared by using the patented Viresolve[TM] 180 ultrafiltration technology, which is effective in removing both enveloped (HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C) and non-enveloped (hepatitis A, parvovirus B-19) viruses. Additionally, RhoGAM's manufacturing process includes the CORR Test, a quality control check to ensure the Viresolve 180 filter is properly working.
* Support Educational materials and programs, including RhoGAM.com and the RhoGAM Teaching chart are available in both Spanish & English to help teach your patients about sensitization and the benefits of RhoGAM Ultra-Filtered.
* Reliability Uninterrupted product supply since 1968
Important Safety Information
RhoGAM[R] and MICRhoGAM[R] Ultra-Filtered are made from human plasma. Because these products are made from human blood, they may carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents, e.g., viruses, and theoretically the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent. RhoGAM and MICRhoGAM are intended for maternal administration. Do not inject the newborn infant. Local adverse reactions may include redness, swelling, and mild pain at the site of injection and a small number of patients have noted a slight elevation in temperature.
Patients should be observed for at least 20 minutes after administration. Hypersensitivity reactions include hives, generalized urticaria, tightness of the chest, wheezing, hypotension and anaphylaxis. RhoGAM and MICRhoGAM contain a small quantity of IgA and physicians must weigh the benefit against the potential risks of hypersensitivity reactions. Patients who receive RhoGAM or MICRhoGAM for Rh-incompatible transfusion should be monitored by clinical and laboratory means due to the risk of a hemolytic reaction.
Ortho-Clinical Diagnostic provides value behind the products through education on the web. ORTHO W.I.R.E., the Worldwide Immunohematology Resource for Education, an interactive internet portal full of educational programs to meet specific needs of transfusion medicine professionals.
