The STA Compact Max 3 offers significant performance improvements and includes the EPC (expert pre-analytical check) module.
This EPC module controls fill volumes of all types of tubes and detects haemolysed, icteric and lipemic samples, allowing the STA Compact Max 3 to check sample integrity to ensure quality results. It requires no additional plasma volume and does not affect throughput.
In addition to automating sample integrity checks, the STA Compact Max® 3 makes optimum use of patient samples. Stago employs a unique, mechanical viscosity-based detection system in all its systems offering a reliable-result guarantee, since measurements are not affected by optical interference, as well as optimum sensitivity for weak clot detection.
The STA Compact Max® 3 has an innovative hardware design that makes it more user-friendly and efficient, to optimise productivity while keeping user maintenance operations and manual interventions to a minimum (with a PSR [single resolution pipettor] module and new cap piercing needle).
Its hardware innovations are supported by new software tools, allowing your laboratory to benefit from Stago’s expertise and quality commitment. Traceability has been improved, to provide a verifiable record of each variable used to obtain patients’ results, while factor parallelism, programmable and automated reflex testing rules and clinical algorithms mean you benefit daily from the know-how of recognised experts.
The STA Compact Max® 3 has the largest sample, reagent and disposables capacity in its class, offering greater autonomy. Its systems are built around a random-access architecture, allowing effective STAT management, promising a fast turnaround time for urgent samples and ensuring the kind of outstanding performance you have come to expect from a Stago analyser.
The STA Compact Max® 3 also benefits from Stago’s innovative and unparalleled support service, to help our customers guarantee operational certainty. This includes remote diagnosis and troubleshooting as well as access to the automated Stago externalised IQC platform: My Expert QC.
Sample and reagent management has also been improved and simplified in the STA Compact Max® 3 for even greater efficiency. Routine and specialised tests can be performed side by side and the wide range of ready-to-use and highly stable liquid Stago reagents minimises preparation time.
Boasting a unique Stago pre-calibration function, fully automatic barcoded reagent management and the ability to manage multiple reagent lots at the same time, these systems are designed to meet the challenges of today’s clinical laboratories. These features are supported by Stago accreditation tools to ensure simple and seamless compliance with quality standards.
