Thrombolyzer XRC

Cap piercing, positive sample identification, digitalised measuring system and complete traceability where even the reaction process is stored for later referral.

Even with all of its features, the Thrombolyzer XRC remains incredibly easy to use. START, STOP and ALARM OFF are the three buttons you need to control the entire analysis routine. The sample rotor is loaded like a rack and then inserted into the instrument. A barcode scanner automatically registers all samples located in the rotor. Interruptions in the system are signalled both optically and acoustically. The reagent station can be pulled out in order to reload reagents. Used cuvettes are disposed of in a sensor-controlled waste drawer.

With a throughput of up to 160 tests per hour, this system fits in well in any mid-sized lab.

Thrombolyzer Compact X

The Compact X measuring system works with all standard reagents. It processes both classic clotting tests and chromogenic tests such as AT III and D-Dimer.

Working with the Compact X is extremely effective due to the sample and reagent areas, which can be accessed at any time. The user-friendly software offers all the functions which are expected from a modern laboratory device. One example of this is the display of reaction curves in real-time. Another example is the intelligent liquid level detection system which lets you have your eye on the reagent levels at all times. All relevant test parameters such as reactions, reagent data and QC-results are stored in a data base for later processing.

The Thrombolyzer Compact X is the perfect partner for the small lab. It is compact, dependable and effective.

Thrombolyzer XRM

The list of features in the Thrombolyzer XRM is long … cap piercing, positive sample detection, full traceability and increased reagent capacity. It also includes the possibility to connect multiple units to one LIS system which enables performance scalability.

The sample rotors make an uninterrupted workflow possible. They are used just like a rack: simply fill with samples and insert. The barcode is scanned directly upon sample withdrawal making this system absolutely traceable. Refilling reagents and measuring cuvettes is absolutely no problem and done without interrupting the routine.

A throughput of up to 320 tests per hour is achievable due to the two sample arms for plasma and reagents (which work independently of each other) and an eight-channel measuring system.

The XRM is amazingly easy to use although it has a large functionality range. Just press a button, and the XRM gets to work. Four buttons are enough to run the entire routine processes. All of these features and advantages – and it still takes up less than one square metre of floor space.

Thrombotimer

Starting
When switched on, the Thrombotimer automatically checks all important functions.

Incubating
Inserting a cuvette with a sample into the incubation position will automatically start the timed incubation process.

Measuring
Upon completion of incubation, the cuvette is placed in the measuring channel. The reagent is then added with any commercial pipette. The system starts upon reagent addition and stops with the coagulation of the sample. All results are automatically calculated and then displayed.

The opto-mechanical measuring system
A circulating magnet underneath the cuvette causes a steel ball to rotate. This ball optimises the gentle mixing of the sample which results in uniform coagulation. The light source is adjusted according to the sample’s turbidity making it possible to measure even difficult samples reliably. All sensors in the measuring system are protected from becoming soiled.

The incubation
A timer determines the period of incubation. Shortly before the completion of incubation, a red LED flashes. When incubation is complete, the Thrombotimer emits an acoustic signal. The timer can be programmed as needed for each test.

The evaluation
The measuring results are displayed %, INR, Ratio, mg/ dl, g/ l or seconds. A PC or printer may also be connected to the Thrombotimer.

The service
Since its introduction, the Thrombotimer has proved to be a maintenance-free instrument. Transmission of measuring data to an external system is made possible with the integrated interface.

Thrombostat

Starting
When switched on, the Thrombotimer automatically checks all important functions.

Incubating
The measuring cuvette, with the sample or reagent, is placed into one of the incubation positions.

Measuring
Upon completion of incubation, the cuvette is placed in the measuring channel. The measurement is then started by using either a special Start-pipette or by using the countdown timer in connection with any commercial pipette. Upon completion of the measurement, the results are automatically calculated and displayed.

The mechanical measuring system
A sensor monitors the ball rotating on the bottom of the cuvette.

Three parameters lead to the positive detection of a developing coagulum:

  • A large coagulum is created which stops the ball on the wall of the cuvette.
  • A softer, slower coagulum build-up directs the ball towards the centre of the cuvette.
  • A change in the sample’s viscosity causes a delay in the ball’s movement.
The flexibility
The Thrombostat can be used almost anywhere. It works with all standard reagents and sample types.

About us

Company details

Behnk Elektronik – consistently innovative

The name, Behnk Elektronik, is well known within the worldwide business area of medical technology; it stands for quality in laboratory diagnostics. Founded more than 30 years ago, this family-owned business has been successfully specialising in the development of automated solutions for the analysis of blood coagulation values.
 
Precision and reliability are traits, as are speed and flexibility, which are required in today’s laboratories. A medical team must be able to make decisions in an emergency in next to no time. Exact and quick analysis results are a must. Behnk Elektronik develops automated and semi-automated instruments for exactly this purpose.

“Simple in principle – innovative in detail”

Lead by this motto, our engineers create new devices and further develop other time-tested systems. These details are the features which ease working with the systems and which guarantee high reliability during the laboratory routine. They are also the features which, if it should become necessary, allow a service technician to quickly and effectively offer assistance. All of these qualities save immense amounts of time and money; they make working with our systems so effective.
 
We mean “Made in Germany” literally. Many of the components used in our instruments are supplied by local manufacturers.
