BN II System
Confidence in plasma protein results
The BN™ II System uses the nephelometric technology for plasma protein determination and supports the clinical management of a variety of disease states, such as cardiovascular risk, gammopathies, rheumatoid diseases, inflammation, kidney disease and others.
The BN II System provides automation and flexibility of use, enabling you to load samples or reagents at any time.
It delivers reliable results, increases your productivity, and is highly cost-effective.
The BN II is a fully automated protein analyzer that contributes to a more efficient determination of proteins.
The BN II System provides you with:
Increased workflow efficiency:
- Up to 100 samples onboard
- Average effective throughput of approximately 130 tests/hour
- Primary tube capabilities for less hands-on time to prepare samples
- Bidirectional host interface to reduce the time needed to enter job lists and validate laboratory results
- Full automation for less operator intervention to obtain final patient results
- Specimen level detection and positive barcode identification for samples, reagents, standards and controls to reduce human error
- Multi-lot management allowing the handling of up to 3 batches of reagents per assay during the same processing period
- Minimum reruns with wide measuring ranges
- Extended onboard reagent stability with anti-evaporation caps
