  1. Sample Tray  
    Capacity for 84 patient samples. Separate access to refrigerated area for on-board calibrators and controls.   
  2. Sample Probe   
    Sampling system includes liquid level sensing, short sample detection and clot detection. The ADVIA 1200 system has minimal requirements for sample volume (as low as 1 µL/test).  
  3. ISE System   
    Indirect Na+, K+, Cl-.Compact, easy to replace, long-life electrodes guaranteed for 30,000 tests per electrode.   
  4. Cuvette-based Reaction Tray  
    Segmented tray for easy cuvette replacement. This advanced, high precision optical system combines with a unique incubation fluid and a concavity diffraction grating to assure superior precision and accuracy in clinical chemistry instrumentation.   
  5. Reagent Storage Area   
    Refrigerated storage for 41 one- or two-reagent chemistries plus open system capability – providing total workstation consolidation.
