CLEVER
JUST GOT SMARTER

After more than 10 years of proven performance, the ABL800 FLEX analyzer is now available in a new PLUS version.

With more than 150 million tests performed on ABL800 FLEX analyzers every year, Radiometer has become a trusted partner of hospitals and laboratories around the world.

Since 2004 the ABL800 FLEX analyzer has provided results with a high analytical performance and an unsurpassed ease of use to everyone from laboratory managers to daily operators.

Due to its many clever, automated features and an advanced sensor technology, the ABL800 FLEX analyzer ensures accuracy, minimizes the risk of errors and makes your workflow faster.

And now, with the updated version of the ABL800 FLEX analyzer with its new smart design and an even better, faster user interaction, you can make your blood gas testing smarter than ever.

The ABL800 FLEX analyzer has been made to fit the demands of a modern, efficient hospital. With its high performing technology and unique FLEXQ module, it brings down manual handling to a minimum, ensures accuracy and frees up time.

With 15,000 active analyzers
globally, the ABL800 FLEX
analyzer provides you with
proven performance.

The accuracy and precision
of the analyzer are based on
advanced sensor technology,
an optical measuring system
and the fact that several of

the steps normally associated
with blood gas testing are fully
automated when using the
ABL800 FLEX analyzer.

As a result, you get high
analytical performance in the
measurement of pH, blood
gases, electrolytes, metabolites
and oximetry parameters.

RELIABLE RESULTS FROM EVEN VERY SMALL BLOOD SAMPLES

The FLEXMODE on the ABL800 FLEX analyzer
enables the analysis of very small samples from
capillary tubes down to 35 µL. Based on the
sample size, FLEXMODE automatically determines
how many parameters can be reported without
compromising the quality of results.

AUTOMATED
QUALITY CONTROL

On the ABL800 FLEX analyzer, quality control
is automated, saving time, ensuring reliability
of test results and supporting compliance.

INTERFERENCE-PROTECTED GLUCOSE,
LACTATE AND CREATININE RESULTS

The three-layer membrane on the glucose, lactate and creatinine sensors provides protection against interferences and helps ensure accurate results.

128 WAVELENGTHS
SPECTROPHOTOMETER

The optical system of the ABL800 FLEX analyzer is based on a 128 wavelengths spectrophotometer with a measuring range from 478 – 672 nm. This allows the detection and correction of interfering substances, ensuring a high analytical quality of CO-oximetry results.

Why make it complicated if you can make it simple? With the FLEXQ module
on the ABL800 FLEX analyzer, blood gas testing has never been easier. Just
place the safe PICO syringe on the module and let the analyzer do the rest.

IMPROVE WORKFLOW AND
SAMPLE QUALITY

The FLEXQ module, still unique within benchtop analyzers, is one of the finest examples of how Radiometer’s close relationship with doctors, nurses, lab managers and hospital management, paired with an innovative approach, is capable of improving workflows and sample quality.

MINIMIZE THE RISKS
OF ERRORS

Thanks to the FLEXQ module on the ABL800 FLEX analyzer, the blood sample is automatically scanned, mixed and analyzed, saving you valuable time and helping to ensure maximum sample integrity.

With the unique 1st Automatic solution from Radiometer you save time
and ensure that the test results are matched to the correct patient to avoid
the risk of mix-ups.

Due to the pre-barcoded safePICO syringe, you can
scan and automatically link operator ID, patient
ID and blood sample ID directly at bedside.

When the blood gas analysis is complete, results
are transmitted back to the patient’s bedside via
the AQURE data management system. It’s accurate
and it’s simple!
