Features & Benefits

Optimum Laboratory Efficiency

Low minimum reaction volume of 150μl improves cost-effectiveness and reduces waste. Cuvette check function ensures only clean and viable reaction vessels are used.

Advanced On-Board Stability

Cooled reagent and sample carousel ensure reagent, controls and calibrators can be stored on-board the analyser without compromising stability.

Superior QC Capabilities

The RX monaco generates a range of Levey-Jennings charts, calibration curves and QC statistics ensure superior Quality Control capabilities. 

Complete Consolidation

A complete range of instrumentation, reagents, IQC and EQA available from a single supplier allows for consolidation and real cost savings.

Highly Accurate Testing

120 semi-permanent cuvettes on-board automatically washed in 12 step cleaning programme to minimise contamination providing reliable results everytime. 

Time and Cost Effective

Minimal maintenance required and low water consumption of only 5.5 litres per hour at maximum throughput the RX monaco offers cost effective toxicology solutions.
